I Never Thought This Day Would Come

I-Never-Thought-This-Day-Would-Come-1

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?”

  1. It’s made from Sugar Beets.
  2. The viscosity is killer.
  3. 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.
