The southern jam Add to ...

The owners of Goods & Provisions used to run a furniture shop in Toronto’s west end. Eighteen months ago, they parlayed their fondness for antiques into a funky, retro-looking tavern in east-end Leslieville. Bar manager Aaron Beaudoin happens to be a fan of classics, too – the potable kind, in his case. His beverage list includes the manly Hemingway Daiquiri (Papa’s grapefruit-juice-enhanced variant on the lime-rum refresher) as well as a fizzy Negroni, made by running the gin-Camparivermouth blend through a carbonation machine into small, pop-style bottles. Then there’s the antique-inspired Southern Jam, a riff on the Old South’s bourbon-based mint julep, which comes thickened and sweetened with peach preserves. Served down-on-the-farm-style out of a 500-millilitre Mason jar or tumbler filled with crushed ice, it’s the perfect shady-porch refresher for your inner Duke of Hazzard. Think of it as Louisville meets Atlanta, the Kentucky Derby crossed with NASCAR.
