Countdown to National Vodka Day!

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!

Fall Apple Collins

Cranberry Aperitif

Vanilla Pear Tini


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.

      There is nothing wrong with basic, the cran-vodka is a classic at any bar and hard to mess up. I love all of the Deep Eddy flavors!

    All of those cocktails sound delicious! I typically stick to Tito’s but I’ll have to try this Reyka stuff out!

      Tito’s is a Texas staple, I have a bottle at the house now. Reyka is very smooth and refreshing. There isn’t much of sting if you drink it straight….maybe that’s just me.

      I don’t drink every night, but I do enjoy a responsible adult beverage when I feel like it. It’s one of the perks of being an adult after all. I love wine, beer, rum, and vodka! CHEERS!

    Oh my yum. All of these look so good. The last one with vanilla has just been added to my list of things I need to re-create this Fall. I may be trading out my wine for this cocktail TONIGHT.
