You’d think sampling a classic mocktail would make for a tame episode, but not on Gina’s birthday! The duo sample five(!) different versions of the Shirley Temple, including a few of the dirty variety, before trying some fancy cherries and getting into a much needed bidet update.
It’s a doozy–in both length and alcohol content–as Gina and Paul make up for a few booze-free episodes by going all-in with the infamous AMF cocktail. Five different types of alcohol in one festive blue package! A real “wiffle-maker” as Gina would say, but can her son get her to say what the “F” stands for?
Connection problems may plague this latest, self-isolated episode, but Gina and Paul still manage to enjoy a Quarantini cocktail. The duo tackle the tough questions, like how is Paul’s new bidet? What does Gina miss while stuck at home? And, most importantly, how did Paul turn out so great?
- 3oz Gin or Vodka
- 2oz lemon juice
- 2 tbsp honey simple syrup (boil honey and water)
- Vitamin C powder (or ground orange peel) rimmer
It’s a very special, socially distanced episode, as Gina and Paul stay in the comfort of their respective homes and talk over the phone. Avoiding the liquor stores and making do with what they have means Paul’s trying an Old Timber cocktail while Gina has fun with two different Cosmos. Naturally, the conversation turns to bidets and a roasting of anyone not taking the Coronavirus pandemic seriously.
It’s a pre-Canada Day celebration as the duo get deep into a classic Canadian cocktail that Gina has never much cared for, the Caesar. They try several variations, including pre-made tall cans and sample Perth, Ontario’s Top Shelf vodka. 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”.
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. Also, which 007 would Gina most like to share a cocktail with and here’s hoping she still has Facebook friends after last week.
A snowy winter day leads to Gina & Paul wearing silly hats and trying a variety of Moscow Mule mixes, including alcohol-free ginger beer. Find out what Gina finds funniest about her son, which actors she would have play each of them in a movie and what are their favourite comfort-drinks. Just don’t ask her to try and read the vodka bottle.
