Costco is selling giant bottles of ready to drink Margaritas.

Dude! Costco in Canada doesn't sell liquor. You're just teasing us with this.

 :facepalm: Of course they'd all be in Alberta. Unfortunately I'm a resident of temperance leaning Ontario. We only got beer in supermarkets within the last two years.

I see they even have the Margarita. (This is where I'd put the "I'm jealous" emoji if we had one)

Don't know about liquor in Canada generally, but they have a pretty impressive selection of beers and, especially, wines, here in Quebec's COSTCOs

Not here in Ontario. Best we can do is wine making kits. There are limited licences to sell beer in grocery stores but to the best of my knowledge Costco here hasn't applied.

There was talk last year of Costco expanding it's liquor service to Saskatchewan but I don't know if that has actually happened. Based on the Costco Canada Liquor website it hasn't.

I know Quebec has generally a more permissive system and to a large extent, the Ford government sees the Quebec model as the one it wants to head towards. We still have a limitation to some extent from a very one-sided, ten-year agreement that the previous provincial Liberal government signed with the Beer Store in 2015 that continued a near monopoly that the Beer Store has/had over the sale of beer in the province (Liquor is even more tightly controlled through the LCBO). With luck we'll get there some day. One thing about the Ford system of allowing beer through grocery stores is that the variety of craft beers has really taken off here.

Costco in the U.S. was one of the places we found Grind Espresso Rum.  Good stuff!

Their whisky is un-good, but their vodka went toe to toe with Grey Goose in taste tests and beat it.

Apparently, a "USUAL SUSPECT"

“In peace there's nothing so becomes a man as modest stillness and humility; but when the blast of war blows in our ears, then imitate the action of the tiger; stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood, disguise fair nature with hard-favor'd rage.”

 Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and start slitting throats
