Back in my hayday I would be out at the clubs on the regular. I mean, like – I would work at them five nights a week and party at them the other two. Our little crew of industry peeps would have our own booth where we would order up bottles on a Tuesday night…just because. Or, as you can see below – if it was my birthday and I clearly got a little too knife-happy. LOL
In fact – some of my best memories from my twenties revolve around the nightlife industry. I’ve made some great friends there…and my longest relationship started in a club.
…that’s a whole ‘nother post, on a whole ‘nother subject matter though…stay tuned for that one…and get your popcorn ready because it’s a dousey.
Anyways, I’m getting off topic here. What was I talking about again? Oh yeah – that club life. When I was working, whether I was bartending or doing bottle service – the most popular drink of choice was always vodka. Always.
“Hey, sexy – can I get a vodka soda?” *rolls eyes*
It makes sense though. Let’s be honest, vodka is freaking delicious. You can mix it with juice; you can mix it with soda. You can have it on the rocks; you can have it as a shot.
That actually sounds like an alcoholic version of a Dr. Seuss book. LOL
Either way you slice your limes – vodka is a pretty universally liked drink.
Actually, vodka makes up 20-25% of spirits sold in North America today…so, the stats are there…it’s one of the most popular spirits.
While the more popular name brand that describes a certain colour of a certain animal is pretty good – there are other options out there, guys. Broaden your horizons once in awhile. Try something new. Just saying.
My friends at Wybo recently sent me a bottle to try out and that I did. Obvs. In fact, I tried this Polish vodka with a Polish person. And – on top of that, he who shall not be named actually said he preferred Wybo to some of the other more popular vodka brands, and he wasn’t just saying that because he’s polish and rooting for his home brand.
Pro Tip: Keep your vodka in the freezer. It won’t freeze, and is best served ice cold, baby.
After some poking around on the Wybo website, I noticed they have a few different cocktail recipe suggestions. Colour me intrigued!
These are a few of my fave Wybo cocktails:
