A good tequila stupor is lucid rather than sloppy, which makes this purist-run bar, specializing in quality goods rather than body shots, a godsend on the sloppy-drunk Ossington strip. Tequila flights ($18–$45) are served with homemade sangrita (Clamato’s tangy cousin) rather than lime and salt. A Hot Ruby ($11.50), with habanero- and strawberry-infused tequilas and grapefruit soda, is the ideal winter warmer. The heated back patio offers an excellent view of neighbourhood fire escapes, which you don’t see very often in this city.
