Drink of the Week – Melona from Buca

On a trip to Toronto last week we met with some key writers with Chatelaine, National Post and AOL over dinner and cocktails at Buca, in the hip and trendy King West neighbourhood. Buca has become one of the city’s best Italian restaurants, known for their signature house cured salamis, handmade pastas and pizzas.

We had a great evening, imbibing classic Italian wine and cocktails on the patio paired with a large pizza, served with a pair of scissors to cut. We just love the rustic, farmhouse feel and authentic Italian-style dining. One of our favourite cocktails is the Melona, a refreshing mix of vodka, kiwi and apple juice, garnished with a slice of kiwi.
