Toronto’s famous The Carbon Bar is renowned for its delicious BBQ, inspired cocktails and an overall unique menu. Their recent Smoke, Meat & Whisky event showcased their creativity on the grill and behind the bar. In case you couldn’t make it to this mouth-watering meal, here are two of my favourite Smoke, Meat & Whisky takes on classic cocktails that you can make at home.
You will need to engage your inner bartender for these bad boys…All ingredients are available at the LCBO and your favourite grocery store.
Or better yet, head to The Carbon Bar where they will make it for you.
