Gorgeous on the outside? You bet.
But it’s definitely what’s on the inside that counts.
We hold that sentiment for shirtless men in hammocks, but it goes double when it comes to our beloved booze. The latest to capture our heart (and liver), as well as a prominent space on our bar is the spectacular Glass Vodka.
Now available in Dallas, the Seattle-based Glass Distillery makes these “Connoisseur Class” vodkas from grapes grown right there in the lush Pacific Northwest. The result a wonderfully aromatic spirit that emulates the sensation of a million microscopic flower-carrying fairies swinging from nose hair to nose hair for an olfactory treat like few other vodkas on the planet.
The flavors include the clean, crisp O.G. Glass Vodka; Glass Spice Vodka made with pure Ceylon Cinnamon exclusively from Sri Lanka; Glass Kona Vodka infused with coffee from Hawaii; and Gridiron Vodka, which blends grapes and grain for a more traditional tasting vodka.
Then there’s our favorite: Glass Nectar Vodka. This lightly sweet, extremely fragrant spirit reminds us of childhood days slurping the nectar from inside honeysuckle flowers.
The goal of Glass Vodka was to be in the 50 best restaurants in the 50 best cities. It can be found at many of our favorite Dallas eateries, including Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse, Parigi, Proof + Pantry, Dish Preston Hollow, Savor Gastropub, Bolsa, Shinsei and Five Sixty by Wolfgang Puck.
As long as our glass is always half-full of Glass Vodka, we’ll be optimistic about everything.
