Drink of the Week: the Original Mai Tai

Gloria Mak, Howl Staff

With this warmer weather, how better to cool off than with a cool drink? Enjoy a citrusy mai tai on a sunny patio while you watch sweaty fools trudge the burning pavements of Toronto. It’s also a great drink to accompany an evening meal as you watch the sunset.
