Since I'm alcohol-free for Lent, I am dreaming of a great cocktail after April 12th...preferably in the south/west end of the GTA (i.e. Etobicoke/Roncy/Queen West) or downtown/midtown/Leslieville.
Where is the best bartender (with the best tastebuds) in town? The kind of place that prides itself on crafting a delicious well-balanced cocktail or martini with fresh ingredients, interesting garnish, freshly-squeezed juices, unique ingredients, house-infused spirits, etc. Doesn't have to be "fancy" but simply mixing sour apple liqueur with vodka isn't what I'm talking about.
If you know their "special" night (e.g. Martini Mondays, half-price Tuesdays, happy hours) let me know!
Please don't bother suggesting places in Markham/North York/Scarborough; they are simply too far out of my way (though I suppose it could help others).
My current fave is Jam Martini Bar in Port Credit. Those bartenders know their stuff and $5 Martini Mondays are delightful.
