Groundhog Day 2022: Shubenacadie Sam and Wiarton Willie didn’t agree on their predictions this year (are we really surprised?!), but Manitoba Merv has reported the sun is out and so is his shadow. Hunker down folks, winter isn’t going anywhere. While we wait, enjoy these top picks for a smooth (albeit extended) transition to spring.
“The Prisoner” Red
Winter warm up with this tasty red that features enticing aromas of Bing cherry, dark chocolate, clove and roasted fig. Persistent flavours of ripe raspberry, boysenberry, pomegranate, and vanilla linger harmoniously, for a smooth and luscious finish.
FanF*ckinTastic 1000-Piece Puzzle
Master this 32” x 16.5” puzzle that features original artwork by artist Wayne White. Expressive letters against a setting of water, grass, trees and sky. Puts you in the right mood to get through the long slog of seasonal clippers… fanf*ckintastic.
Kasama Madeira Whiskey Chocolate
Savour this Kasama collaboration with The Liberty Distillery, featuring Trust Single Cask Whiskey that has been aged for three years in Madeira barrels. After aging the Philippine cacao beans in an oak cask for four weeks with this unique spirit, they are dried and stone ground, yielding a chocolate with distinct wine-like aromas and notes of oak and almonds. Small batch, hand-crafted and made in Vancouver, BC.
Beer Pong Game
Get your exercise with this classic pub game. Featuring 12 plastic cups and 2 plastic balls, the aim of Beer Pong is to fill the plastic cups with a variety of intoxicating beverages to then attempt to bounce balls into them. Once achieved, bottoms up! Repeat. Repeat. Repeat...
And just in case Manitoba Merv is wrong, keep Tread Softly Prosecco in your pocket to celebrate!
