Sensational Summer Sippers at DEQ Terrace and Lounge

Toronto's Favourite Outdoor Hotspot Opens for the Season at The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto

TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - Jun 10, 2014) -  Toronto's premium patio experience returns to The Ritz-Carlton, Toronto this week with the opening of DEQ Terrace and Lounge. Voted as one of Toronto's best patios, DEQ will once again welcome guests to a park-like oasis in the heart of the city's downtown core.

Created by renowned Toronto mixologist, Trevor Burnett, DEQ's summer menu features hand-crafted cocktails inspired by ocean front destinations from around the world. Cocktail enthusiasts will enjoy a taste of St. Tropez with the French Buck -- a sophisticated blend of vodka, freshly squeezed orange and lime segments, Spanish bitters and ginger beer. Or, reminiscent of Playa Del Amor in Cabo San Lucas, the playful Caza Pompelo Cooler is a refreshing mix of tequila, pompelmo pellegrino, sherry, lime juice, sugar and black pepper bitters.

And for traditionalists, DEQ's Legacy menu features classic cocktails with a twist including the Expense Account Mojito with rum, lime, mint, basil and maple syrup topped with cuvee. And the throwback One Two Punch featuring spiced rum, ginger beer, pineapple and lime juice, bitters and absinthe.
