Montreal summer, how we love thee, let us count the ways. There's just so much awesomeness going on at any given moment all over the city, but if there is one thing that really makes the warmer months extra special, it's the pure indulgence of sipping a refreshing cocktail on a comfy terrasse while enjoying good company and friendly weather. The perfect combination of quality ingredients and premium alcohol makes for a delicious party in your glass, and we've found 6 you owe it to yourself to try this summer.
Nothing pairs better with patio season than this cool and refreshing Lime Rickey made with Absolut vodka, Limoncello, lime juice and soda.
Thirsty yet? Because we are. But we would not just leave you hanging after teasing you with these tantalizing cocktails which is why we'll tell you where you can get 'em. Best known for their tender aged steaks, delicious Prime Rib, and a variety of seafood favourites that have made them famous for well over 40 years, The Keg Steakhouse + Bar is actually so much more.
Their wine menu is extensive and their latest bar menu features a great selection of signature cocktails, including all 6 listed above! Not only is each cocktail imagined and custom-made in-house, but they are also ridiculously affordable, with a double ("Keg Size") costing you no more than $10.50!
The Keg has 4 gorgeous terrasses in the greater Montreal area (including two rooftops) and a shareable menu jam-packed with delectable items like fresh Ahi Tuna Tacos, shaved Prime Rib Sliders, and Crispy Shrimp. And, just in time for summer, The Keg’s Lobster Summer menu features delicious new shareable items like Crispy Lobster Tacos and Lobster Gratinee, plus returning favourites like the Sirloin and Half Lobster, and Whole Atlantic Lobster. These lobster features are only available until August 30th, so come and get them before they’re gone and make The Keg your new summer dining destination.
Expedia also shared data on Canadians' interest in visiting Quebec destinations. After Quebec City and Mont-Tremblant, Canadians seem to want to travel to La Malbaie, Tadoussac, Montreal and Gaspésie — in that order.

"The projects announced today are tangible platforms for creating exciting jobs," Aéro Montréal explained in a press release.

There are limited quantities each day but the offer is valid at two of Ca Lem's locations — in NDG and the Plateau — so you can double your chances of getting a free sundae.

The mastermind behind all of this, Asseraf, has such a warming, kind presence, which is reason enough to take a visit to Galerie 203 whenever you're strolling through Old Montreal. She let MTL Blog know that anyone and everyone is welcome in her gallery.
