The drink that put vodka on the US map
Vodka may now be the most popular spirit in the United States. But back when this drink was invented (in the 1940s), few Americans had ever encountered it.
Then the Moscow Mule took the country by storm. And Americans started a love affair with vodka that still goes strong today.
One taste of this tall, slow sipper and you’ll see why. Because what could be better than vodka and lime juice topped off with spicy ginger beer?
Drink up, comrades!

Vinaigrette dressing makes this perfect for picnics
Potato salad is the ultimate summer side dish. It never misses a cookout, barbecue, or picnic.
Green beans make this potato salad lighter and more colorful – not to mention tastier. And this salad features vinaigrette dressing instead of mayo, so you can serve it at room temperature.
That’s great for cookouts. You can leave this salad on the picnic table while you’re cavorting in the summer sunshine. Because after all that outdoor activity, you’ll want to go back for seconds.

Basically, a Martini with attitude
A classic Martini is made with dry gin and dry vermouth. So is The Atty Cocktail.
But the Atty adds a kiss of absinthe and crème de violette – just enough to give its flavor a hint of anise and violet, and its hue a tinge of blue.
The Atty is perfect for sipping before dinner on a warm summer’s night. But really, we’d welcome it anytime. Because suave is always in style.
