A DIY For Keeping Your Vodka Icy Cold This Summer

Posted: 06/24/2013 12:16 pm

Sometimes, ladies and gentlemen, a picture really is worth 1,000 words. This scathingly brilliant idea is brought to you by the folks at Iceberg Vodka, who combine pristine water harvested from icebergs off the coast of Newfoundland with triple-distilled neutral spirit made from sweet corn grown in Ontario.

A friend of mine who shall remain nameless tried it. It was all fun and games until she started sobbing that she wanted to know how many icebergs had to die so she could have those seven martinis. Just goes to show -- moderation in all things, my dears, especially when they're of the icy alcoholic beverage type. Still, great idea, no?
