National Vodka Day – Part Two: IZZE Soda Isn’t Kidding

For National Vodka Day, I have cocktail recipes coming at from distillers around the world. I thought it’d be refreshing (no pun intended) to try a little soda — or the recipes from a soda company.

IZZE Soda is looking to partner its craft soft drinks with vodka, so they provided this particular set of cocktail recipes.
