As Seen in Food and Drink Mag - Autumn 2015

Our Favourite Things from the New Autumn Food & Drink Mag

We get pretty excited every time a new issue of LCBO's Food & Drink Magazine comes out! So many great new serving tips and mouthwatering recipes - perfect when you want to wow your guests or are just needing a little inspiration in the kitchen.  


As seen in the Autumn 2015 Edition of Food and Drink Magazine


Featured in the Autumn 2015  issue is the seductive Sailor's Delight cocktail, "a colourful spin on the Dark and Stormy" (p.38) and who doesn't love those?! Its pretty colour comes from adding Hibiscus Syrup (p.158). You can get some of the key ingredients for this recipe like Fevertree Ginger Beer and an all purpose bitters, like Dillon's DSB Bitters right here at Bradshaws!

Fevertree Gingerbeer at Bradshaws Stratford, Ontario  
Sailor's Delight
2 oz amber rum
1 oz (30 mL) strained fresh lime juice
½ oz (15 mL) Hibiscus Syrup
2 dashes Angostura Bitters
4 oz (125 mL) ginger beer, chilled
Lime wheel to garnish

In a chilled highball glass with 2 ice cubes, add rum, lime juice, Hibiscus Syrup and bitters. Stir for 15 seconds. Fill glass with ice. Top with ginger beer. Lightly stir. Garnish with lime wheel. Makes 1 drink. We can't wait to try this, is it Friday yet? 

We spotted some more great Food & Drink essentials for autumn that you can find in-store at Bradshaws and in our online  shop!


Handy Beer Tasting Guide!  

Beer tasting is becoming more and more popular in Ontario. To really enjoy and bring out the aroma in craft beers, specific glassware makes all the difference. We love this Beer Tasting Set from Final Touch, which includes a serving paddle and a handy beer tasting guide. ($29.95)

Kikkerland Rivsalt Kikkerland Rivsalt Kit 

Freshly grated salt is another growing trend with foodies. Use Kikkerland's Rivsalt Himalayan Pink Sea Salt rocks and a fine stainless steel grater to grate and serve right at the table. ($32.95)

This cleverly designed 3 piece basting set from British brand JosephJoseph is sure to help you out over the holidays. The leave-in thermometer, cleaning brush and baster all fit together as one for easy storage when not in use. ($29.95)
