Drink review: Georgian Bay Gin Smash

An Ontario-made cocktail from the folks at Georgian Bay Gin? This one has cottage season written all over it...

If you've ever turned up your nose at pre-mixed cocktails, you're not alone. Generic spirits with unfamiliar mixers don't tend to fill you with the same joy as your favourite drink. Luckily, there's nothing standard about the Georgian Bay Gin Smash. Made with premium Georgian Bay Gin (an award-winning spirit, and one well worth trying on its own), this sparkling cocktail packs a citrusy punch with natural flavours of lemon, lime, tangerine. It tastes like the grown up version of a Sweet Tart, but a helluva lot more refreshing—that's probably down to the mint.

If you're feeling fancy, serve it in a tall glass with ice at your next garden party. We'll take ours chilled in the can, with our feet dangling off the dock.
