Want to serve the same kind of swanky cheese plate you can get at Short North's cocktail-centric bar Mouton? The first thing you need are these crunchy and addictive Raincoast Crisps, studded with rosemary, raisins and pecans. Just add cheese.

On a recent evening visit, Mouton's new bar manager Cris Dehlavi was kind enough to whip me up a modified version of her award-winning A-List Cocktail. She was missing the cider and the honey, but her version was nearly as delicious.
