#ROGUESTORIES: Kat Stefankiewicz, Raptors Personality

#ROGUESTORIES: Kat Stefankiewicz, Raptors Host

High energy is something that is innate to someone like Kat Stefankiewicz, a former dancer and the current in-game host of the Toronto Raptors. Having seen humble beginnings for the Raptors franchise, to the now booming Jurassic Park and We The North movement, she’s no stranger to excitement and change. She narrates her experience with a hearty laugh and mischievous sense of humour, that keeps you guessing what she’s about to say next.

Mixing coffee-based cocktails is absolutely fantastic, yet it doesn’t happen enough. It might be the time-of-day that’s holding you back – cocktails tend to be an evening affair, while coffee pairs with the morning bagel. This week’s drink asks you to stir up your usual routine, but we promise that it’s worth every last drop.

Here’s a dangerously delicious mix of coffee and whisky. The Iced Irish Coffee is like the seasons – from summer to fall, we have all the fixings of a cool drink, but with warm flavors. Creamy, delicious, and perfect to sip:
