MAPLE BOUR­BON OLD- FASH­IONED

Elle (Canada) - - Radar -

If Jay Gatsby had built his home on the banks of Lake Muskoka in­stead of in West Egg, he would have sipped this so-Cana­dian-ithurts twist on a retro favourite, dreamed up by Mathieu Roy Chabot, mixol­o­gist at the Shangri-La Ho­tel in Toronto. Chabot calls the cock­tail “hap­pi­ness in a cup.” It’s an ex­pe­ri­ence that be­gins with zingy cit­rus, gets sweet from the maple syrup and then “boom—

a touch of salt from the ba­con.” Cheers, Canada!

SIGNS YOU’VE BEEN AT THE COT­TAGE TOO LONG… 1. Woodsmoke is your new per­fume. 2. Tub­ing is your pre­ferred mode of trans­port. 3. The last per­son you spoke to was that deer you saw three days ago. 4. S’mores and beer seem like a bal­anced meal.
