LCBO Food & Drink Holiday 2021


Here’s to a tropical staycation! Dreaming of a holiday on some sun-drenched Caribbean beach? Get a little taste of it with these sophisticated ready-to-drink cocktails.

Here’s an ideal gift for someone who’s head- ing south (or wishing they were). Take a tropical cocktail like a minty Bacardi Mojito ( LCBO 19119, 355 mL, $2.85) or SoCIAL Lite Pineapple Mango ( LCBO 491191, 4 pk, $9.95), a refreshingly dry vodka soda and amplify the beach-­ getaway mood with these whimsical tropical-themed ornaments created from laser-cut natural birchwood by Toronto artist Ali Harrison. With her own com­ pany, Light + Paper, she makes everything from cake toppers and 3-D cityscapes to hand- cut paper artworks.

As the perfect present to give alongside a shared bottle, Won- derkind suggests hand-blown glasses from Infinite Glassworks (we’re showing two lowrider tumblers here). Glassblower and metalsmith Kate Civiero and her husband, Matthew, founded the company in Eugenia Falls, Ont., renovating a historic barn to serve as a studio. Every piece they create is unique and sold separately, so no two tumblers are identical—but that’s the beauty of hand-blown glass.

Tip the porter A bottle big enough for sharing turns a beer into a gift—especially when it’s such a rich, seasonal brew.
