OK people! I need help locating that Christmas Classic from some of our dissipated youths, Allan's Misty Mints; that pastel coloured, mint flavoured, chocolatesque pastille. Does anyone know where to find them in Toronto? Online?
Jennifer Colliau, bartender at San Francisco's Heaven's Dog and owner of Small Hand Foods, loves using mint in her drinks, but she warns home bartenders against using wooden muddlers with this delicate herb. Use a spoon instead, lest you end up with a drink that tastes like toothpaste. This tip will come in handy when you're making your next Mojito.
