It may be St. Patrick’s Day, but Gina and Paul buck the trend and go non-acoholic in honour of one of the booziest holidays around (this might have something to do with last episode’s martini extravaganza). They at least manage to stay green and dive into matcha-based mocktails. Paul also puts his mom on the spot as she is asked to define some key “mom-isms” that even he can barely understand.
A classic cocktail for a milestone tenth episode! Gina and Paul sample several martini variations using Toronto’s own Spirit of York gin, including James Bond’s favourite, the vesper martini.

A snowy winter day leads to Gina & Paul wearing silly hats and trying a variety of Moscow Mule mixes, including alcohol-free ginger beer.

Just don’t ask her to try and read the vodka bottle.
Gina tries bubble tea for the first time and is understandably surprised by what shoots up her straw. Speaking of which, just how many times can she and Paul say the word “balls” in one episode? They also answer the age-old question of whether or not Paul is adopted and discuss how Gina waters plants with booze. Happy Chinese New Year!
It’s a journey into sake, as Paul & Gina try three different brands and temperatures of the classic Japanese beverage, including Toronto’s own Ontario Spring Water Sake Company.

Gina flaunts her newfound fame with some complimentary Bootleg Whisky Cider from Niagara’s Small Talk Vineyards/Shiny Apple Cider.

Gina returns the favour by admitting she doesn’t put the nice sheets on the bed when he’s staying over.
Gina’s appetite for Christmas is only matched by her thirst for eggnog in this special, schedule-defying pre-holiday episode.
