National Vodka Day – Part One: Cocktail Deluge Begins

It’s National Vodka Day. Seriously. It’s yet another day devoted to raising awareness to a liquor everyone on Earth would otherwise recognize. But, I don’t want to digress into yet another diatribe on how much overkill all these “National ____ Days” are.

Instead, let’s shut up and start mixing our vodka cocktails with the help of UV and Prairie Organic Spirits. Drink up quick before I start making smart ass remarks about how much I’m looking forward to National Campari Day.
