Gifts to Make Your Dad’s Father’s Day Special

present, gift

Let’s raise a glass to our own dear Dads, and to the ones who are like a Dad to us, on their “once-a-year day.” Our only demand of Dad on this day, is that he relaxes, put his feet up, absorb the good vibrations, enjoy a refreshment and count his blessings.

Ramsbury Gin

June is the beginning of Gin and Tonic season, and Ramsbury Gin, newly introduced at the LCBO, is here to elevate your summer. You’ll taste the essence of the English countryside. From their own estates in Wiltshire, England, they have picked quince, juniper, citrus, flowers and herbs to add subtle floral notes and hints of spice to the gin. Then, to give the drink even more unique flavour, cinnamon, grapefruit and lemon are added to the spirit. Grain-to-glass-sustainability is at the heart of Ramsbury, ensuring a commitment to quality and environmental responsibility.

Gin and Tonic

  • 50 ml. Ramsbury Gin
  • 150 ml. Fever-Tree Tonic

Fever-Tree

Ever since Fever-Tree was introduced into the maze of effervescent soft drinks and cocktail mixes, it has been without peer, and is undeniably the best. This summer, their new flavour is Sparkling Sicilian Lemonade. Whoever said, “A lemon, is a lemon, is a lemon” was wrong. The Sicilian lemon oils are taken from both the peel and the juice to create a sweeter, more delicate flavour, and this makes it perfect to drink alone or mix with any cocktail. As they say, “If ¾ of your drink is the mixer, you should mix with the best.”

There are times during our day when we have that sudden pang of hunger and the next meal is hours away. Now, here’s the good news. There’s a new bar on the block that is going to satisfy every nook and cranny of your appetite for a good few hours. And, there is no added sugar. I tasted each one of these 55-gram bars, and savored the crispy, crunchy and creamy textures. And yet, my family turned up their noses at yet another protein bar—until I put some in the car before they went on a road-trip. Next day, I got a call of effusive thanks and surprise at the delectability of Barebells. Choose any or all: Cookies and Cream; Chocolate Dough; Caramel and Cashew; Creamy Crisp. The print on the box reads: Barebells is the best thing since sliced bread. And, you know, I have to agree.
