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 against the flu. No wonder the Carnival Grog is such effective relief from 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, sweet grass (Quebec’s own vanilla) and cloves.
Get your Carnival Grog at the Unibroue Cabin, at the SAQ Bistro or at Bar le Coureur des bois. Indoors, it’s served in a souvenir mug for you to keep. Outdoors, you can choose between this mug or an ice glass!
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 has been available in participating IGA stores since January 14 and will be sold in all IGA locations across the province starting January 28, 2019.
