It’s the weekend! Time to unwind and literally just forget about the woes and worries that filled your mind this week. Chill out, invite some friends over, do what pleases you. I thought a weekend cocktail inspiration is a great way to kick off the weekend. It’s great to have a few cocktail recipes on hand for when you are entertaining guests. You can pre-make them and put them in a fancy pitcher.
Georgian Bay Spirit Co., known for their gin, just released vodka inspired by the serene purity of Ontario’s Georgian Bay. This vodka is made with fresh water, some say the purest water on earth, from the Township of Springwater.
