Sit back, relax, and celebrate the day with your favourite beverage! While the origins of this day remain unknown, I think it is safe to say that it encourages people to take some time out of their busy lives to honor the little things.
A great beverage can do wonders to how we feel. It provides energy after a long day at work; it can bring people together and make us feel less stressed. Whatever your beverage of choice may be, whether it be flavoured water, hot tea, coffee, or a vodka soda, this day provides a great excuse to drink it all day. Unless you have work, then maybe wait until you’re done to dive into the vodka.
If you’re looking to find a cool drinking hole or something new to try for this special occasion, there are lots of spots in Toronto where you can grab a delicious drink or craft cocktail.
If you are not a morning person like I am but still must work on this glorious Sunday, then be sure to get your caffeine fix. If you already make your own coffee then perhaps you could get some new beans to spice up your life. A great way to save money on coffee beans is to buy off of Amazon, they have a varying selection and can deliver the next day. If you don’t have the time or just prefer the nostalgia of coffee shops, be sure to check out the top 50 coffee shops in Toronto.
If you are looking for a way to bring friends together this holiday, try something like Sangria night. If you are not able to make it at home then try Playa Cabana. The name translates to ‘Beach Cabin’ and is one of the newer arrivals to the Toronto dining scene. Weather permitting, you should take a seat on their patio and try the sangria and tacos. Their small plates and shareable drinks make it the perfect spot to catch up with friends or family.
Looking for a night out on the town or maybe just looking for something new? Find your way to Ossington Avenue where you will find SOOS. This Malaysian street food style restaurant offers creative craft cocktails that will leave your taste buds satisfied. They also offer teapot shots, for those who really enjoy tea this is something you will love. I personally recommend their Tea Rex Teapot shot that combines jasmine tea infused vodka, Chambord Ceylon tea syrup, and coconut liqueur rinse. Any one of their drinks will go great with one of their tapas plates. Their version of a roti is delicious and it’s a great spot to bring friends or a significant other.
Regardless of what you choose to drink on this holiday, be sure to enjoy the moment and be humbled by the satisfying power that a simple drink can provide!
