When the sun is bright and the temps are high, we love kicking back with family and friends and sipping on some delicious, refreshing, homemade cocktails and we're beyond excited to say we've just found our No. 1 fave for 2016: The Georgian Bay Vodka Smash.
Crafted with Georgian Bay Vodka, this summery sipper is not only yummy, but it wins all the brownie points for being Canadian. The vodka is produced by small batch distillers Georgian Bay Spirit Co. using fresh water from the Township of Springwater (arguably the purest water on earth). Taking part in this year's World Spirits Competition in San Francisco, the vodka was awarded top marks in a blind taste test AND it was chosen as Best Vodka.
So, without further ado, here'e the Georgian Bay Vodka Smash recipe:
- 1 oz. Georgian Bay Vodka
- 1⁄2 oz. lemon juice
- 1⁄2 oz. lime juice
- 1⁄2 oz. St. Germaine
- 1 1⁄2 oz. pomegranate blueberry juice
- 12-15 blueberries (15 - 20 if using wild)
- 4-5 raspberries
- 6 or 7 mint leaves
- Soda water
Georgian Bay Vodka is available at your local LCBO for $39.95.
