Victoria, Ethan and I made tasting notes for close to 20 different American vodkas and our favorites are featured on the site.  In addition to the Hibiscus Rose Vesper, I submitted these recipes as well:

Vintner’s Fizz
2 oz. Vintner’s Vodka
1.5 oz. St. Germain
1 oz. fresh lemon juice
1 egg white (equivalent of 1 oz.)
Pinch of salt
Barspoon of superfine sugar
1 oz. seltzer

Combine all ingredients except for seltzer and dry shake.  Add ice and seltzer and shake again.  Strain into chilled martini glass.

Celery Cider
1.5 oz. Organic Nation Vodka
2 oz. apple cider
Dash simple syrup
Pinch of celery salt
3 dashes celery bitters
Juice of one lime

Combine all ingredients over ice, shake and strain into a rocks glass over ice.  Garnish with a celery salt rim.

Unnamed Coffee Deliciousness
2 oz. Vermont Gold Maple Vodka
1 oz. espresso
1 oz. Kahlua
