Toronto's Most Tropical Cocktails for Summertime Sipping

Toronto's most tropical cocktails are just the thing to take your summer from stale to spectacular in a matter of sips. On hot days, they refresh. When it rains, they inspire. Every day, they offer a taste of vacation-style indulgence and indisputable fun.

Crafted from island-inspired ingredients, these drinks are fresh, fruity, and pack a punch. There's something here for every taste from frozen drinks, ideal for sweltering days, to pastel-hued potions made for afternoon sipping.

As far as seasons go, summer is as fleeting as they come. So, while you can, head to one of these spots and order one of the most tropical cocktails Toronto has to offer. You might not be on a beach, but close your eyes as you enjoy one of these impressive concoctions, and you'll feel as though you're halfway there.
