Earlier this week my instagram feed was flooded with perfect cups of coffees in wide celebration of National Coffee Day. That was cute. I’ll be honest my priorities were way off because while all those coffee lovers were enjoying their day – I was counting down to the one that really matters. October 4, 2015 is National Vodka Day.
If you haven’t guessed it already, I
like love vodka! National Vodka Day occurs at least one every week in my household whether it be a vodka tonic, Screwdriver, or Bloody Mary. Sometimes if I am feeling bold and desperate (more so desperate), I’ll drink it neat.
With fall finally starting to come into full swing, imagine my excitement when a new vodka popped up on my radar. Rekya Vodka has fully embraced the stimulating flavors of fall with apples, pears, vanilla, and cranberry to usher in the cooler weather and celebrate National Vodka Day in style. You’re probably wondering what Rekya Vodka is all about. Fear not, because I’m here to share a few trade secrets behind the vodka scenes.
Reyka hails from Iceland. A land of volcanoes and glaciers, vast fields of lava rock and towering waterfalls of spring water. It’s an island of fiery eruption and icy resolve. It’s that spirit and those natural wonders that are captured and transformed into a vodka that has no equal.
Did you just get as excited as I am right now? Well, it gets better. I would hate to leave you empty handed just a few days before National Vodka Day. Consider this your Vodka Preparedness Kit from Reyka – 3 recipes to help with celebrating this weekend leading up to the big day!
I’m going to make life easier for all of us and let you know what you’ll need to do. After reading these delicious recipes, you’re going to visit the Rekya website and found out where you can buy a bottle. Then you are going to head to your local store and grab the most divine and succulent fruits to pair with your recipe of choice. After you’ve mixed your cocktail, enjoy your weekend.
Happy National Vodka Day lovers!
Much appreciation to Reyka Vodka for the beautiful photos – I’m super excited to try all three of these cocktails.
