Gina and Paul get basic as they join the fall PSL trend, trying pumpkin spice lattes from their local coffee shop (Paul also teaches his mom what “basic” means). Hopped up on caffeine, Paul gives a history lesson while they stuff their faces with ginger cookies and apple turnovers before Gina let’s loose on lazy shopping cart users. S

Gina and Paul cheers to the end of summer with some refreshing mojitos. They also ponder the possibility of a very special–and presidential–guest (don’t hold your breath) before introducing a new segment that encourages Gina to toast something she’s happy about before roasting whatever has ticked her off lately.
It’s about time these two got around to one of the most iconic cocktails, the Old Fashioned.

Also hear why Paul’s mom should never take the subway and play a riveting game of “guess the Canadian classic rock star on the tip of Gina’s tongue”.
After a brief break to allow Gina some world travelling, the duo are back just in time for World Gin Day. Catch up on Gina’s Mediterranean hijinx and Paul’s jury duty experience while they try Spirit of York’s Hawthorn Berry Gin.
