National Vodka Day

2 reason why this may be your best day ever: It’s National Vodka Day and National Taco Day!

National Vodka Day

“National Vodka Day!? Is that even a real thing,” you may ask. The answer: It has its own website which, of course, is unequivocal proof of its legitimacy. So, yea. This is a thing!

Unprepared for Vodka Day’s arrival? How embarrassing. But no worries! We contacted the amazing Revae Schneider, founder of Femme du Coupe, for some libation inspiration and she didn’t disappoint. Here’s Revae’s National Vodka Day recommendation:

Fall Mule
1.5oz Vodka
.75oz Le Sirop Ginger Zest or ginger syrup
.75oz Lime juice
3 blackberries
Shake and strain
Voilá! Now, hop to the kitchen and prepare a proper celebration!
