Pure as Rain

As you may have gathered from The Liquid Muse Sustainable Sips cocktail classes, I am always excited to try out an organic and / or sustainable product. Recently, there seems to be a trend toward bringing flavors to organic spirits, and they actually taste good!

Unlike some artificial flavorings and colors, the natural aromas and tastes used in organic spirits leave the palate feeling fresh. For example, the four flavors being launched this summer by Rain Organic vodka not only sound delicious but taste fabulous.

The Cucumber Lime would be welcome in any vodka mojito I’m making (one of The Liquid Muse Sustainable Sips Signature Cocktails for summer).

The Lavender Lemonade makes a gorgeous vodka martini when garnished with a sprig of fresh lavender across the top (I often use aromatic garnishes to enhance an already delicious drink).

The Red Grape Hibiscus is a surprising burst of flavor. (This would be the one I’d use for an organic Cosmo!)

And, the Honey Mango Melon is dripping with indulgence. It is my new BFF in the way of flavored vodkas.

Rain is USDA Certified Organic and don’t be surprised if you see it popping up from time to time in The Liquid Muse Mixology. I can never get enough of a good thing.
