Constantine just hit the Toronto restaurant scene this spring but it’s already a huge hit because of their stellar food and inventive drinks. Located inside the Anndore House on Charles Street, Constantine focuses on Mediterranian cuisine and exotic boozy concoctions. In honour of summer’s arrival, try the Tropicália — A tropical blend of cachaça, a fermented sugarcane spirit popular in Brazil, Orgeat, an orange flower water syrup, passionfruit syrup and lemon-lime juice.
