Last month of the year, last post in this series I believe. Solely because now that I’m not living in CA and have wineries at my fingertips, and while I’m in my 30’s and have a toddler, I’m not as adventurous to always be trying new drinks. Therefore, while I may still have things to write about, it may not be on a month by month basis. But I know I have some fun things planned already in 2020, so I wouldn’t rule out never seeing a post like this again.
Here are the two things I drank in December.
Smirnoff Red, White, and Berry Vodka. Now, I know what you are thinking, this is a summer time flavor. And while yes it is, I had bought it for another event that it didn’t end up getting used much for, so I had plenty left over and decided I was going to treat myself to it. While I can’t handle straight shots anymore, I found this mixes very well with Sprite. I’m sure it would mix pretty well with some Ginger Ale as well, maybe some cranberry juice, or tonic or soda water. It truly tastes and reminds me of those bomb Popsicles that I used to eat as a kid. I was able to get this at my local Publix liquor store, but I’m not sure if it is around all year.
Svedka Strawberry Lemonade vodka. Another summertime flavor that I didn’t get around to trying until much later in the year. I was on a strawberry lemonade kick earlier this year, and this flavor did not disappoint. I would say you can mix this with Sprite, Ginger ale, or actual lemonade to make a nice and refreshing drink. This I also got at my Publix liquor store, and while this may not be a limited edition flavor, it may still not be around all year long.
Let me know if you’ve tried either of these and what you thought of them. Here’s to more fun drinks in 2020.
