By now, you all know I’m a wine girl, but I enjoy a mixed drink every now and then, too. So I took the bottle last Saturday night to a cookout at my friends’ house, and my friend Mike and I did a little taste test and then a little mixing.
The vodka is really good – clean and a tiny bit spicy without too much of that after burn that some vodkas can give. I’m not a vodka connoisseur, but Mike said he’d rate it right up there with Grey Goose. After a taste of it straight, we went to work on creating a drink from it. Here’s what we came up with.
South Jersey Fruity Orange Creamsicle
2 oz Blue Ice Organic Vodka
2 oz orange juice
2 oz fruit punch
2 oz club soda
scoop of soft vanilla ice cream
Fill tall glass with ice; add vodka, juices and club soda. Stir in ice cream until it’s mostly dissolved (don’t use a blender). Enjoy.
Mike’s wife Penny also enjoyed the vodka in some Mudslide mix and it worked well.
If you’re looking to be more eco-conscious and sustainable with your spirits, give Blue Ice American Organic Wheat Vodka a try. It retails for around $30 in stores.
