o2 Sparkling Vodka
We discovered the concept of sparkling vodka this week, which we file under "things we wanted but didn't realize it." What is sparkling vodka, you ask? If you want to be all hoity toity you could say it's an effervescent neutral grain spirit. If not you could say it's vodka with bubbles in it. Apparently the folks at International English Distillers have discovered a way to put oxygen bubbles into their vodka so it sparkles like champagne. Some people say the bubbles in carbonated alcoholic drinks make the booze hit your system faster; we just like the way the bubbles tickle our noses.
Another thing we like about these guys is the fact that they could have rested on their laurels being the only bubbly vodka currently going (though Luxist's O2 vodka story says Diageo has plans to make their own), but they didn't. They've also come out with a stable of crazy...errr, interesting drink recipes called "Tapastinis" that have us completely intrigued. We've never made martinis that include sushi, caviar, or jellybeans, but we've got a bottle on its way so we hope to change that ASAP.
