We recently had the opportunity to review LEAF Vodka and Khortytsa Vodka and FELL IN LOVE, literally. So what better way to celebrate National Vodka Day than with some creative recipes to pin and save for your holiday entertaining?
About LEAF Vodka
LEAF Vodka is finishing using the freshest water, sourced directly from nature. (You can’t get any more natural than glacier water!) The flavor characteristics of the water are incorporated into the liquid, creating distinct and sophisticated vodka expressions. And yes dear readers – water does have distinct characteristics!
The liquid is triple decanted prior to the filtration process, which produces a pure spirit base that allows the character of the water to enhance the vodka. It is then distilled five times using organic wheat grains, which provide a softness to the taste. Trust me – this is the best vodka that this drink-loving blogger has EVER tasted.

About Khortytsa Vodka
Khortytsa (Khor) is a premium vodka that hails from the Ukraine and the Khortytsa Distillery – among the world’s finest. It uses a local organic filter containing schungite (a unique natural mineral) which allows it to get as close as possible to the structure of natural water. The filtration process is further enhanced with special birch and alder-tree charcoal and quartz sand that is sourced near the famous Ural Mountains.
The Khortytsa Distillery is located in the Ukrainian city of Zaporozhe near Khortytsa Island. This ancient island’s history dates back thousands of years and reaches the roots of civilization. It is a sacred place in Ukraine — considered to be the cradle and heart of Ukrainian national pride — and is one of the country’s seven wonders. Khor vodka lives up to the reputation of it’s namesake.
