This will come as a surprise to absolutely no one, but we go out on the town, a lot. We love exploring new places, soaking in patio season, meeting new people, discussing JFK conspiracy theories ad nauseum with whoever will listen, so mostly one another, and finding slammin’ new instagramable spots. It’s a dazzling good time and we have no intention of stopping anytime soon. Before we go out, however, we love a good house cocktail. Aka, a cocktail you have at your own damn house. This is particularly true now that the weather is warming up and little cocktail umbrellas can be used in excess. What pairs best with those little cocktail umbrellas? Kruto Vodka, duh.
We first came across this brand of vodka while perusing the aisle of Seigel’s Liquor and we were immediately attracted to the price point and high rating. The bottle is also pretty basic so, being basic, we decided to give it a go. So glad we did. This vodka is PERFECT for at-home pours. We love it with a little flavored sparkling water and some ice. If we’re feeling ambitious, we’ll add a little lemon or lime. *Shockingly* we’re not as good at making cocktails as we are at drinking cocktails, so that’s about as fancy as it gets. Fortunately, with Kruto Vodka, that’s as fancy as it needs to be.
This vodka is smooth and delicate, much like a conversation with either of us, with a touch of floral and toasted honey notes, kinda like our whimsical personalities, duh. 10/10 recommend grabbing a bottle to keep in your freezer for the next time you need a house cocktail. This vodka is officially a summer 2019 staple.
