Here’s where to find the best brunch cocktails in Toronto

When regular orange juice just won't cut it, check out these five spots instead

There’s nothing like going for a boozy brunch with friends after a long night of, well, boozing.

After all, there’s a reason why millennials have been accused of being at an economic disadvantage due to their addiction to avocado toast—it’s a delicious and nutritious start to your day, and the perfect complement to a scrumptious brunch cocktail.

Sunday brunch is pretty much a staple of Toronto’s culture at this point, because who doesn’t love getting a chance to eat fluffy pancakes and sip on champagne with orange juice and call it breakfast?

The city is loaded with options for the brunch of your dreams plus all the trimmings, and here are a few of the best:
