Shawna and I have been enjoying the appearance of mix drinks that are both locally made and NOT syrupy sugar filled awfullness. The new contender in this category is Dixon’s with their Gin Fusion.

Easy drinking, light, refreshing and tailored made for the summer, I’ve been grabbing cans of this since I first discovered it. Time to actually attempt a review of something I am already heavily biased towards.

This drink sits at 5% ABV and it costs $2.95 a can at the LCBO.

Appearance: Completely clear. No head.
Aroma: Lime at first with some tropical fruits like banana and pineapple.
Taste: Cucumber and lime first, then the mint comes in on the finish. A ginger bite at the very end.
Aftertaste: Very little. After a few sips the ginger burn kicks in very nicely.
Overall: Refreshing, hardly pick up the gin at all.
