This summer I have been exploring new, refreshing drinks to beat the brutal DC heat.
I've done my fair share of mint-muddled mashups and lavender-infused aperitifs. But I've also found a drink that requires no mixing at all and that is really pleasant and refreshing on the rocks. It is a relatively new label called Zodiac Black Cherry vodka. At first my husband was skeptical, not being a fan of flavored vodkas, which can often drift into the too-sweet or artificial-tasting realms. But the Zodiac Black Cherry has become a favorite after-dinner drink to share on the porch after a big meal. It soothes the stomach and has just the right hint of summertime favorite black cherry to delight the palate. I highly recommend it for anyone who is into good vodka and great summertime conversation!
Zodiac Vodka is an all-natural, true craft spirit. It employs a Single Source Distillation® method, as the potatoes are regionally sourced and the entire distillation and bottling process occurs at the company’s Rigby, Idaho-based distillery. The water for Zodiac is drawn from the Snake River Aquifer which runs beneath the distillery. The product is produced using 4-column fractional distillation and is filtered using hand-cut Canadian Birch Charcoal. Zodiac is distilled once - by design, allowing the vodka to retain a naturally sweet, distinctive taste. Zodiac is produced from non-GMO ingredients and as a 100% potato vodka, is gluten-free.
