Summer is when I like to try new drinks. Okay, I lied. I drink new stuff all year round. But summer seems the time when they come up with some pretty nice new beverages. I was out stocking up this week when I saw the new Mill Street Brewery brand of root beer. It is made right in downtown Toronto and is a blend of Mill Street's vanilla porter and root beer, with hints of sassafras and licorice. It is just as yummy as the first time you tasted root beer when you were a kid. So of course, I cooked up a couple of hot dogs Friday night, (Yes, Debra, they were Schneiders!) and washed 'em down with root beer. So, so good.
