Y’all, guess who actually went out and bought a bottle of Vodka? THIS GURL! I was at the farmers’ market in Prospect Park and Orange County Distillery was sampling some of their spirits. I tasted the Gin and Vodka, both of which were pretty tasty, but the Vodka was honestly better!
“Gurl what? You liked a Vodka better than a Gin? Why?”
- It’s made from Sugar Beets.
- The viscosity is killer.
- It’s just straight up delicious with lots of citrus and floral notes.
Basically, this is the second coming of Vodka.
So of course I wanted to put it in a spring themed drink with Lavender, Mint, Honey, and Lemon.
And since the mint was so fabulous, I decided to turn this into a smash.
The name of this drink comes from the fact that I honestly never thought I would like a bottle of Vodka enough to buy it.
I Never Thought This Day Would Come
- 2 oz Orange County Distillery Vodka
- 3/4 oz Honey Syrup
- 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
- 1 dash Barkeep Lavender Bitters
- 5 big Mint Leaves
- Garnish: Mint Bouquet
Add mint, Lemon juice, and Honey syrup to Collins glass and muddle. Add Vodka, Lavender Bitters, and ice. Stir for a bit so the ingredients are all swimming together nicely. Top with soda water and garnish with Mint Bouquet.
Damn straight y’all. I am now a fan of this really delicious Vodka. Cheers to all your adventurous purchases!
