Editor's Choice: This Toronto Company Will Pay You Over $24 An Hour To Make Dogs Look Pretty

Northwood

Address: 815 Bloor St. W., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: Northwood is part of Toronto's cocktail renaissance, one of the first places in town to go for boss-level drinks, and still one of the best. Their mulled cider comes with a shot of Nordic aquavit, and they even have mulled white wine.


Trinity Common

Address: 303 Augusta Ave., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: The only thing that's possibly better than warm weather is keeping warm in cold weather around an open fire like they have on their patio here. And if you have a hot bourbon cider to warm your hands, who needs summer?

Bar Poet

Address: 1090 Queen St. W., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: Their hot bourbon apple cider comes with nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger to keep you healthy. Their mulled has orange, cinnamon, honey, and star anise so nice they spell it "anice" on the menu. Then there's the Cointreau in their blueberry tea.

Tango Palace Coffee Company

Address: 1156 Queen St. E., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: This community-hub coffee shop in Leslieville has pure Ontario hot apple cider – sweet but with no sugar added, just apples – for those who don't want theirs spiked.

Prohibition Social House

Address: 696 Queen St. E., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: The best thing about the hot apple cider here is that it's off-menu. You've got to know about it to ask for it. Like those secret burgers at In-N-Out, except better, because they're warmer, and made of apples and booze.

Civil Liberties

Address: 878 Bloor St. W., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: This Bloorcourt cocktail bar has mulled wine and spiked apple cider that they are serving in Santa Claus mugs, which makes there hot apple cider the best apple cider there is.

The Wren

Address: 1382 Danforth Ave., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: This cozy spot served this satisfied customer hot apple cider, though it's not on their menu (maybe it's another secret menu item; maybe she just asked real nice). Best of all, they just got two new patio heaters last week; they suggest you bring a blanket and "crank the cozy to 11."

Arvo Coffee

Address: 17 Gristmill Lane, Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: This coffee shop in the Distillery District just got mulled apple cider back on their menu and this is just the best place to wrap yourself in a scarf and wander around feeling like you're in another world (they've also got hot ginger lemonade for the apple-phobe in your life).

CryBaby Gallery

Address: 1468 Dundas St. W., Toronto, ON

Why You Need To Go: This Toronto cocktail bar has a back patio where you can sit among haystacks and sip hot spiked drinks like the Chai Hard. The cider is called Them Apples, and i fyou stop by before November 9, you can see Toronto artist Tony Smerek's prints based on classic horror flicks.
