The holidays are such a special time of year to celebrate the gathering of loved ones, while creating lasting memories.
Whether you’re planning to ring in the New Year with some quite time at home or painting the town red, you don’t have to sacrifice your health. Welcome in 2016 and toast to health and great taste with a 100% certified organic, sophisticated, handcrafted cocktail called the Merry Prairie.
Made with respect from seed to glass, Prairie Organic Spirits is the #1 organic spirit*, offering 100% certified organic vodka, cucumber-flavored organic vodka and organic gin, which are made from single vintage organic corn grown on a handful of family-owned and operated Minnesota farms. Each bottle of Prairie Organic Spirits takes three years of meticulous work and provides an elevated cocktail experience that we can all raise a glass to this holiday season. Enjoy the Merry Prairie recipe courtesy of St. Louis mixologist, Dustin Parres. For a non-alcoholic version, enjoy the Merry Prairie Mocktail (minus the vodka and substitute a few drops of peppermint essential oil for the mint liquor). Top it off with a glass straw from Simply Straws for a sustainable garnish!
