A PLACE FOR VODKA LOVERS....










So I was recently asked to try out a new on-line bar,
Belvedere Bar ... Why I don't know, as quite frankly, I really don't like anything. Especially when it comes to on-line bar tending or "mixology" sites. As they tend to try and be all fancy pants and technical, bla bla who cares. After all we are just making cocktails here people, not saving the world...although we are making it a hell of a lot happier...

I am a firm believer that when it comes to mixing up a yummy Libation, it should be fresh, simple, too the point and of course...FABULOUS...and Belvedere Bar does just that. I was pleasantly surprised at how "UN-fancy pants" the site was. The site is clean and functional, with loads of fabulous pictures of the cocktails...all making me so thirsty at this very moment...The recipes are simple, innovative and fresh without going over board on trying to be uber trendy and gimmicky. The ingredients are easy to source, fresh and will not go to waste at your next party.

The site itself is not cluttered with ...well...drivel...It has some mixing tips, cocktail inspiration, a blog and of course Fabulous recipes. It also has some fantastic videos from Claire Smith the head of Spirit Creation & Mixology for Belvedere. She is fabulous at what she does and keeps her demos fun and so easy to follow. No need to get into detail, you just need to check it out...

I also had the opportunity to get a preview sample of one of Belvedere's new products, Belvedere Silver Limited Edition...oh I love my job...
As most of you know...I consider vodka to be the nectar of the gods...and Belvedere Silver does not disappoint. The bottle itself is... FA...BU...LOUS...both whats inside and out. This vodka is polished and has a great finish, makes a killer martini...straight up with two olives please...
I don't recommend dumping a bottle of this into your Aunt Ethel's punch. This is a high end vodka and should be used for your own pure selfish enjoyment...I reserve mine for people I actually like...So if your ever at one of my shin digs and I don't offer up the Belvedere Silver... well you get the picture.

Cheers

Nectar of the gods....amen to that sister. LOVE your drink motto - fresh and simple (kinda like the guys I dated in my carousing days!). Cheers!
