And finally, we close off the show with an interview we did previously with a very special guest, a fellow Canadian, he is a household name, a great man of comedy, of music, of business, you know him from the Blues Brothers and Ghost Busters and of course Crystal Head Vodka, as well as his wines. The one and only Dan Aykroyd!! You will not want to miss hearing what Dan had to say. He is brilliant, he is hysterical and he loves his wine!

What will be in your glass… a rock glass, martini, or a highball perhaps? Make it a Boodles,you say, yes we do, Boodles British gin.
“Boodles British Gin was created in 1845. It contains a unique blend of 9 botanicals including nutmeg, sage and rosemary for perfectly balanced flavour. Interestingly, Boodles Gin contains no citrus botanicals - a practical decision made by original distillers who expected a proper drink to include a slice of lemon or lime!”
Boodles, premium GIN is known for their authentic and unique formula as well as a fascinating history. Brand Ambassador Jonny Gray will join us to tell all and share a few select specialty holiday season cocktails.

We had the opportunity to take an all too brief 4 day visit to Mexico, Playa del Carmen actually, and on one particular evening we met up with a bar tender who was a tequilier, or tequila specialist who proceeded to share with us his great fascination and love of Jose Cuervo tequila, the first tequila producer in the world dating back to 1758.
We loved the story, the tequila and the cocktails so we thought we would share all of that with you. We invite you to read the entire story The Magic of Mexico... on the Mayan Riviera featuring Jose Cuervo Tequila in Power Boating Canada.
