As much of the country is covered in a thick layer of ice, we thought it would be perfect timing to let you know about a great new freeze-filtered vodka. It may be 3° below outside, but that’s not going to stop us from having Happy Hour! We’re completely out of groceries, but hell if we don’t have five bottles of ROKK in the cabinet.
Just like our many luhhhh-vers, ROKK is smooth, comes in a variety of flavors, and won’t be around the next morning. And a whole bottle costs less than half a Complete Meal for Two at Red Lobster, so who needs a date when you’ve got a ROKK?
Our favorite flavor is Apple, which is great over ice with a little simple syrup and fresh lime. A mixture of Orange and Citrus is also nice with lemon-lime soda and fresh mint. Both drinks make it feel like summer inside even though it’s Day After Tomorrow cold outside.
The greatest part of ROKK is that they’ve partnered with the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD), which means we’ll get to enjoy lots of free vodka at upcoming GLAAD events (fingers crossed!). They even proudly promote it on their web site, too.
ROKK has also hired Lonely Island, the hilarious comedy group featuring Saturday Night Live’s Andy Samberg and friends, to be their creative directors, which means tons of funny videos in our future. Check out the first one here.
As for us, we’re getting back in our Slanket, pouring another ROKK-and-tonic and taking a swig every time the Weather Channel mentions the words “wind chill”. We should be drunk in about ten minutes.
