Chappy Hour: The Dirty Sock + Rouge

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!
