The weather is warming up and that means you’ll want to cool down on a sunny patio with an ice-cold beverage in hand.
Thankfully, you’re in luck because Earls just launched a wide range of ‘new + notable’ dishes, cocktails, and wine on Wednesday, May 24.
This includes all-day rosé, individually selected by corporate Sommelier, David Stansfield. The ultimate summer drink, rosé, pairs exceptionally well with all of the new dishes listed on the menu. It’s highly recommended by Stansfield as it offers a combination of white wine crushability and red wine complexity, making it perfect for warm weather.
Bartenders from around the world have worked with Earls Beverage Director Cameron Bogue, and the results are wicked summer cocktails laced with flavour you’ll be able to enjoy starting next week.
Earls’ new + notable options are arriving at a time when you’ll want to eat lighter as opposed to heavier, comfort food dishes. This means more hearty salad options and super fresh seafood dishes. Earls is also introducing brunch to many of its locations, too.
Daily Hive has teamed up with Earls to showcase the new menu options.
You can check to see if the Earls near you will be serving up brunch during the weekends. This means on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays, you’ll be able to indulge in some of the tastiest late-breakfast foodie options. You can order classics like eggs benedict and blueberry French toast plus some unique options.

Some of the best new wines picked by Sommelier Stansfield.
La Vieille Ferme Rosé – Côtes de Ventoux, France
The French do rosé best. They just get it. The La Vieille Ferme comes from the south of France, near the Mediterranean, the motherland of great pink wine. It’s delicate and crushable and dry: win, win, win.
Borsao Garnacha Rosado – Campo de Borja, Spain
The Spanish know a thing or two about warm weather drinking. The Borsao Garnacha Rosado, from the stony foothills of the Moncayo mountains in northwest Spain, beats the heat with refreshing acidity and bright red berry flavour.
Bieler Père et Fils Sabine Rosé – Provence, France
This is it: the rosé that made rosé cool. Made by an American in Provence, it’s got everything a good rosé needs, like fresh fruit and crisp acidity without the hangover inducing sugar of White Zin.
Created in a collaboration with Toronto bartender, Robin Goodfellow, this gin-based specialty is super sip-worthy featuring the wildly fun spirit absinthe, gin, sherry, vermouth and fresh lime.
Made with bourbon, amaro, Aperol and fresh lime.
Aperol, grapefruit or orange spritz
To Spritz or not to spritz, that is the question. A spritz is a wine-based cocktail known for its inclusion of Prosecco. The Aperol Spritz, in particular, is known to serve as an ice-breaker and also be the symbol of a lively atmosphere. Basically, it’s a party starter.
Spanish gin & tonic
This Spanish gin and tonic is a refreshing twist on a classic highball with craft gin, fentiman’s tonic water and cucumber bitters.
Northern sweet tea
A super shareable punchbowl style drink that’s a peachy, lemon, whiskey, black tea mix that you might not want to share once you try it.
4 for $10 shots
Back by popular demand, 4 for $10 shots! The flavours for these shots are boozey twists on some classic cereals: Apple Jack, Cinnamon Crunch, Fruit Hoops and Coco Poofs.
A sweeter predecessor to a martini, is a gin-based drink using Genever, Cinzano sweet vermouth, maraschino, and orange bitters.
A rum-based drink featuring banana liqueur as a sweetener that’s reminiscent of a tropical time in your life.
Pronounced Wa-haw-ka, or you could just point to it on the menu, is named after a state in Southern Mexico. It’s tequila and mezcal-based, sweetened with agave, and green strawberry bitters. This is a smoky version of the Old Fashioned.
A whiskey drink that is drier than most, has rye, amaro, apricot liqueur, maraschino, and two types of bitters.
It’s the kitchen sink of Old Fashioned cocktails. Made with Johnnie Walker, bourbon and amber rum, this drink is true to its name. This new line up is joining the Earls Old Fashioned in the line-up at select locations.
Cold brew coffee
Coffee drinkers and weekend brunchers rejoice. You can pair your food with a cold brew coffee at Earls and enjoy it with or without shot of Baileys.
