Witchcraft Cocktails: Three Olives Vodka Rind Stone Cowboy & Apple Martini
Labor Day is a a good day to sip on delicious cocktails. If vodka is your jam, Three Olives Vodka will please your palate. The hand-crafted small-batch vodka from England is available as an unflavored vodka, but also available in several unique flavored vodkas such as Fresh Watermelon, Apple Pear, Loopy, Cake, and Strawberry to name a few. There are some flavors that will come and go so don’t get attached, just find another flavor to love.
One of the best things about Three Olives is that it’s a premium vodka yet inexpensive. If you are going to entertain and are on a budget, this vodka would be a great way to go. Remember it during the the holiday season.
While the following drink recipes are groovy for Labor Day, they would also be great at the beginning of the fall, especially the Apple Martini. Both can easily be paired with dinner or appetizers. I’d recommend pairing the Rind Stone Cowboy with a steak, burger, or fried chicken. The Apple Martini would be great with a cheese plate, roast potatoes, or eggplant dish. Enjoy!
