Vodka Is My Soulmate

Soulmate Vodka and Bacon

Ah, soulmates. Not just anyone can fulfill you the way your soulmate can.

They say your soulmate brings out the best in you, and makes you feel complete.

If that is the case, Vodka is surely my soulmate.

Few things makes me happier than that warm and fuzzy feeling Vodka gives me as it kisses my lips. Whether I’m celebrating a victory or need some comfort after a shitty day, Vodka has always been there for me in a way few men ever have.

We met in my twenties and fell in lust immediately – though every time we were together that little minx Cranberry was around. She was a bit of a third wheel the first few times Vodka and I got hot and sweaty on the dance floor, but back then I wasn’t really looking for a commitment so I let her get in on the action.

We had several good years together, Vodka and I. Vodka was my go-to partner when I wanted to let loose or get wild, but at the age of twenty-five I said goodbye to my party girl ways to become a mother.

That’s when I decided to end things with Vodka.

Our weekend threesomes, foursomes and other orgy-like situations didn’t fit into my life anymore.

Sipping on wine and beer seemed the more appropriate thing for a mother of one to do, but wine and beer never made me feel as good as Vodka did.

Beer made me feel bloated instead of sexy. And wine – well wine made me emotional if we hung out for too long.

That’s why when I became a single mom at the age of thirty I decided to give Vodka another chance. I was finding myself again and Vodka seemed like the perfect partner to lead me in the right direction.

Vodka had rarely steered me wrong before – aside from the times it convinced me to drunk dial my ex-boyfriends. But hey, nobody’s perfect!

Sometimes we still get frisky and invite other ingredients to our parties, but mostly I’m content with a quiet evening at home with my Vodka on the rocks.

Through good times and bad, we’ve definitely built a solid relationship over the years.

Valentine’s Day is Friday and in honor of my love for Vodka, I’m sharing a few recipes I got to try this weekend – all completely AMAZEBALLS, by the way.

They each feature Van Gogh Vodka and were created by “The Cocktail Guru” Jonathan Pogash.

If you’re not familiar with Van Gogh Vodka, you need to grab yourself a bottle IMMEDIATELY.

With twenty-two smooth flavors such as Cool Peach, Rich Dark Chocolate & Pomegranate, and a super affordable price point (even this single mom on a budget can buy it!) there’s no excuse not to get yourself to the liquor store pronto to fall in love with your own a bottle.

My Honey Valentine

1-1/2 oz. Van Gogh Pomegranate Vodka

3/4 oz. pomegranate juice

1/2 oz. fresh lemon juice

1/4 oz. honey syrup (equal parts honey and hot water stirred until the honey dissolves)

Shake ingredients very well with ice and strain into martini glass or over ice into a rocks glass. Garnish with a lime.

Cool Peach Bellini

1 oz. Van Gogh Cool Peach Vodka

1-1/2 oz. Peach Puree

3 oz. Prosecco

In a mixing glass stir the vodka and puree well. Add the Prosecco with ice and gently fold the ingredients (without stirring too much, as this will remove bubbles). Strain into a chilled champagne flute.

Spice It Up

1 1/2 oz. Van Gogh Rich Dark Chocolate Vodka

3/4 oz. milk

1/2 oz. cinnamon syrup

Shake well with ice and strain into martini glass. Garnish with a pinch of chili powder sugar (equal parts cayenne pepper and sugar)

Is vodka your soulmate too? Celebrate your love with one or ALL of these Van Gogh Vodka cocktails. 

Because in my world, Vodka makes everything better.
