With the opening of patios across Ontario, it is safe to say summer has arrived. To celebrate, we invited Greg, from Umbrella Bar in Ottawa, to school us in the art of tiki-inspired cocktails. Duelling Winds is sure to blow your socks off; it’s filled with not one, but two types of rum, and packs a heap of tropical flavour. Enjoy!
If you haven’t been to Umbrella Bar, we recommend you check it out! The patio has stunning views of Dow’s Lake, a decadent menu, and an excellent selection of beer and cocktails.
