I first saw these premixed drinks when my husband came home from the LCBO one day. He bought the premixed Ginger Ale drink. I had a sip and loved it. Not only was this drink delicious, but it had the perfect amount of both whiskey and ginger ale in it. This not only saved us time from making the drinks ourselves, but these are so much more convenient to bring with you when you're going to a BBQ, party, etc. What I didn't know was they had not only the Ginger ale premixed drinks, but also cola. I had a chance to try these yesterday when I was sent four premixed drinks to try, two ginger ale, two cola. Both were delicious, the cola a bit more sweet than the ginger ale, but both very tasty. I'll definitely be trying the cola again sometime this Summer and I know for sure my husband will be having their Mixed and Ready Ginger Ale, it's been his go to drink for the last couple of months.
