ALU mixologist Tan Light whips up a drink to pair with the featured poem "Keele" from Adrian De Leon's collection
Rouge (Mawenzi House) – an homage to the TTC and Toronto's east end. This cocktail might be called The Dirty Sock, but it definitely won't taste like one – we promise!
For the last Chappy Hour of 2018, join me on a ride through Toronto’s West End as we toast the TTC-inspired poems in Adrian de Leon’s Rouge. I was delighted to discover the Dirty Sock cocktail, a perfect pairing for the poem, Keele.
