Eat & Drink
Feeling hungry from all your adventures? Looking for a little pick-me-up to fend off the cold? The Carnival has everything you need for a bit of a kick!
The Carnival Grog and Bonhomme’s Syrup
The legendary grog is a hot and often alcoholic drink once used as a remedy for the flu. No wonder the Carnival grog is so good at relieving you from the frosty weather! This delicious drink is made of Bonhomme’s Syrup, a special creation by Monsieur Cocktail that features maple syrup, pure cranberry juice, cinnamon, cloves and sweet grass (Quebec’s own vanilla).
Get your Carnival grog at the Unibroue Cabin, at the SAQ Bistro or at the Cabot Trail Bar. Wherever you go, it’s served in a souvenir mug you can add to your collection.
Why not make your own grog at home? You simply need to buy the requisite ingredients and to follow the recipe below. Bonhomme’s Syrup is available for $12.99 in select IGA stores and on Monsieur Cocktail’s online store.
