This Indie88 feature is presented with Georgian Bay Spirit Co.


Smash Mimosa

This tasty beverage is the perfect drink to kick off your day. Serve these up in a champagne flute with 2.5 ounces of Georgian Bay Gin Smash™ and 2.5 ounces of an orange juice of your choice, all topped with a little champagne. You’re going to want bottomless glasses of these Smash Mimosas at your cottage brunches.


Smash Screwdriver

The Smash Screwdriver is the perfect beverage for a day on the dock. Soak up the sun with this refreshing drink by pouring 6 ounces of Georgian Bay Vodka Smash™ and 6 ounces of premium orange juice in a stemless wine glass filled with ice. Then, gently stir the tasty concoction and garnish it with a sprig of mint to really enhance that unique flavour.

Bayfield Bramble

Craving a sweet afternoon drink? Try out the Bayfield Bramble for an invigorating glass of tasty alcoholic juice. To make this refreshing drink, all you’ve got to do is combine lemon juice, simple syrup, and Georgian Bay Gin® in a cocktail shaker, and shake it hard until chilled. Then, strain it into a rocks glass filled with crushed ice, top it with 0.5 ounces of Cassis, and garnish with blackberries.


Big Tub Breeze

If you’re out enjoying your day on the lake, the Big Tub Breeze is the perfect drink for you. Sweet beverage lovers rejoice, as this easy, ultra tasty drink comes filled to the brim with tasty summer juices. To make this drink, fill a Collins glass with ice, and then pour 1.5 ounces of Georgian Bay Vodka™, 2.5 ounces of cranberry juice, and 2.5 ounces of pineapple juice, then stir gently and garnish with a lime wheel, a pineapple slice, and cranberries.

Hard Lemonade

Round off your day with a refreshing cup of Hard Lemonade. This recipe takes a little more finesse, as it involves some crushed ice. Crushed ice, or frappe ice, takes a little bit of work, as you’ve got to put ice cubes into a freezer bag or wrap with a clean cloth and break them up with a mallet or rolling pin. Once you’ve got the ice, this recipe is a breeze, as all you’ve got to do is fill a high-ball glass or mason jar with crushed ice, pour in 1.5 ounces of Georgian Bay Vodka™ and 4 ounces of your favourite lemonade, and garnish with a lemon wheel.
