Spring has sprung here in Houston! And, not a day too soon. Yes, I know we are great big babies when it comes to cold weather but there is something to be said for mild days, sunshine and getting the pools open. For us that also means it’s time for the annual “Spring Fling” party with all our best friends as well as soon the pool will be opened up for fun, food, friends and family. With all this activity and entertaining it’s time to look for some light and cool, crisp and fun flavors to try from one of my favorite vodka “families,” Ivanabitch.

I recently had the opportunity to try some of the newer flavors of vodka by Ivanabitch. My selections included Green Apple, Blackberry and Cherry. Doesn’t that sound like a great selection of flavors as the warm spring and hot summer months arrive? Let me talk first about the various flavors. My first experience with this particular brand was with the Peach flavored. I admit, it’s till a favorite and really versatile. I want a crisp tasting vodka, that can easily be mixed with whatever I happen to have on hand and that also tastes great chilled (straight from the freezer). These flavors from Ivanabitch fit the bill. I can drink them on the rocks as well as make up a pitcher of a variety of drinks perfect for sipping while sitting outside. Crisp, refreshing, these vodka’s don’t have the smokey aftertaste that many other vodka’s offer as Other flavors available are:
- Traditional Vodka
- Red Berry
- Whipped Cream
- Two Tobacco flavored vodkas
Ivanabitch Vodka is made using only the finest, most fierce grain spirits and clearest spring water available. Every batch is distilled five times to remove any unwanted impurities then triple-filtered over active charcoal to achieve a clean, fresh, taste that is smooth, delicate and full of attitude. And, it is all of the above!
There are so many recipes available on their website so feel free to try your own. Here were our favorites as we shared with our friends.
2 oz Ivanabitch Peach Vodka

2 oz Ivanabitch Cherry Vodka
4 oz Sprite
Splash of grenadine

2 oz Ivanabitch Cherry Vodka
4 oz Coke
Serve over ice in rocks glass and garnish with a cherry.
2 oz Blackberry Vodka
2 oz lemonade
Serve over ice in rocks glass and garnish with blackberries.
A variation on this one is to mix Blackberry Vodka, and instead of lemonade use pomegrante and grape juice. That was a favorite too!
