Foodie Swellness: J.P. Wiser’s Hopped “Root” Beer recipe (and Corby Spirit and Wine x TTC NYE complimentary service

FullSizeRender (55)

Whiskey cocktails are my jam. Whenever I go out for drink or dinner, my friends see a whiskey cocktail on the menu and know that that’s what I’ll order. What can I say, I can be predictable.

Here’s a cocktail I’ll be making at home (using my personalized bottle of J.P. Wiser’s Hopped Whiskey, ’cause I’m fancy; you can check it out on my Instagram):

Hopped “Root” Beer

1 oz. J.P. Wiser’s Hopped Whiskey

4 oz. Root Beer

Add ingredients to a rocks glass fileld with ice.

(To make a Hopped “Ginger” Beer, just substitute 4 oz. of ginger beer for the root beer!)

Given that it’s holiday season, I hope you’re celebrating safely. If you’re drinking on New Year’s Eve (I know I’ll be!), opt for the TTC, it’s free! For the third year, Corby Wine and Spirits is partnering with the TTC to offer complimentary service on New Year’s Eve. On top of that one lucky person will receive free TTC passes for a year. If you want a chance to win that sweet prize, just visit and join in on celebrating responsibly this season.

Foodie Swellness: Wrapped in Rubies cocktail


A bit of tartness from the cranberry juice and the Smirnoff Grapefruit cuts the sweetness of this cocktail. A refreshing and simply recipe that I’ll be serving up this summer for sure!

Wrapped in Rubies

1.5 oz Smirnoff Grapefruit

3 oz. Cranberry juice

orange wheel

Build in a rocks glass over ice. Garnish with the orange wheel.

Fitness Swellness: I’m a torch bearer for the Pan Am games


Tomorrow, on Sunday, June 21st, I’ll be in the torch relay for #Toronto2015 Pan Am games, I’m running with the torch on behalf of Technogym.

I’ll be out in  Hamilton on Main St. and my estimated relay time and section is from 504 Main St. to 557 Main St. at 12:52 p.m. I’m so honoured to part of this part of  Pan Am games history — thank you Technogym for the opportunity.

If you’re out in Hamilton, come by and say hi! I’ll likely walk with the torch; it’s only 200 metres so I want to stretch out my moment!

My friend Christopher will also be running on behalf of Technogym (you probably know their state of the art fitness equipment — they’re the equipment the Pan Am athletes will be working out on in the Pan Am Athletes’ Village gym; in fact, that’s me in that gym in this photo here!) on July 6 in Toronto, so keep an eye out for him, too, for his relay in the Beaches neighbourhood in Toronto!
