One of Ontario's largest brew on premises facilities, Better Bitters gives intoxicant enthusiasts the chance to craft their own libations with a fun, easy process that creates drinks worthy of picky palates at a lower cost than can be found in-store. Today's Groupon equips purchasers with their choice of the strawberry margarita or mojito wine cocktail kit, both of which produce 23 litres of devilish drinkables. The easy two-step process only requires the customer to come into the store for a 5–10 minute mixing session. After five weeks of marinating in a lucky bucket, the elixir is ready for in-store bottling, labelling, and a cotillion ball debut (the price of bottles is not included in this deal–customers can bring their own or purchase them on-site for $10 per dozen). Either convivial consumable is tasty frozen or mixed and makes a great holiday gift or New Year's Eve cocktail. For more information on Twisted Mist products, visit the info page.
