You Need to Try “The Broken Compass” in Chinatown

The Keefer Bar has long been a favourite for local cocktail lovers and travelling imbibers alike. Their ever-evolving seasonal menu ensures that we always have something new to sample but the tried-and-true Keefer classics remain available year-round. If you’re looking to sip on something new, consider The Broken Compass. It’s a cold, Fall-inspired tiki drink that successfully incorporates the seemingly disparate flavours of blended scotch, amaro, orange, coconut, pandan and burdock root.

The unconventional combo makes for a beautiful, sippable surprise as the flavours marry to create something that is as comforting as it is refreshing — a potential year-rounder. We all tend to associate tiki with all things sweet and summery but this iteration truly brings in smoky, autumnal flavours that are worth tucking into as the cold and wet weather hits Chinatown.

You Need to Try the Smoked Bacon Old Fashioned at Gastown’s Wildebeest

The bacon is smoked in-house and the fat lives with the bourbon for a bit, leaving behind a delightfully rich and smoky base spirit.
