It’s a real doozy this Christmas, as Gina and Paul try another seasonal classic, hot buttered rum. They try a time-honoured recipe as well as the results of Paul’s experiments with fat washing. All this and Gina gives some holiday spending advice before they invent a new classic Christmas carol (be sure to stick around to the end for that). Merry Christmas!
Gina and Paul get ready for patio season with a selection of low-alcohol radlers, including two from Waterloo Brewing. Gina also yells at her garbage man, answers a question about sensitive neighbour relations and gets fired up at Paul for mocking her purchase of off-brand soda.
Gina and Paul chat about old pals while trying the classic cocktail of the same name. They sample a boulevardier version for good measure while Gina gives advice on how to deal with a smelly friend (not Paul).
Gina and Paul try a classic cocktail by way of the Sidecar, all so Paul has an excuse to plug his new Bay Mud album. Meanwhile, Gina is fired up in a return of her Toast & Roast segment before diving into some potentially family-saving advice.
It’s about time Gina and Paul got their hands on some cosmopolitans, and they’re going to need them to get through all the nonsense this episode brings. The duo talk about the cosmos place in pop culture while trying some lemon vodka, and we finally get to hear about Mom’s first day of retirement, which involves more dog poop than you would have thought. All that and Mom gives advice for someone invited to a swingers party.
It’s a long one this time around, as Gina and Paul dive into the ever expanding world of non-alcoholic beer. The duo get the burps trying a half-dozen different options from various breweries while introducing a new advice segment for Gina to see how she measures up against Dear Abby.
