I’m not usually one for premade coolers, I often find them too sweet and sugary and start to feel sick immediately after just one. This may have something to do with the fact that all I used to drink when I was younger was coolers? Seems like the alcoholic choice for high schoolers are Mike’s Hard or Smirnoff Ice? Maybe because its more accessible, it looks like a non- alcoholic beverage or maybe it’s just the convenience of them, all I know is I drank way too many of these when I was a teen. In my 20’s it was all about a mixed drink, a rum and coke, a gin and sprite, a tequila and orange juice, a vodka and cream soda or a personal favourite, a Long Island Iced Tea, cause who doesn’t want vodka, tequila, gin, and rum all in one? Fast forward to my 30’s and I’m back to enjoying a small selection of coolers again.
My drink of choice is still vodka, blame the Russian in me. I enjoy a top quality vodka, especially when drinking it on the rocks. Grey Goose, Russian Standard and Cîroc may come with a higher price tag, but worth every penny. One of the reasons why I don’t enjoy many vodka coolers is because of the lower grade vodka that burns going down, that was until I was introduced to Woody’s. Woody’s use the best triple distilled vodka with real fruit flavors for a cleaner, fruiter and more refreshing drink. It’s the perfect blend, if you ask me? New for summer 2014 is Woody’s Mango & Passionfruit cocktail that contains 5.3% alcohol. This is the perfect drink for summer, refreshing, tropical flavour and it requires no mixing. Just chill, serve straight out of the bottle or pour over ice. It’s ready when you are. Easy to bring to backyard BBQ’s and relaxing afternoons at the cottage or pool. I’m not going to lie, this is my summer drink of choice; vodka, mango and passion fruit all in one, what else could a girl ask for? You can find these at your local LCBO for only $9.95 for a pack of 4 (330ml each).
