This weekend, the glitterati will flock to Los Angeles to celebrate the biggest night in music. Although we can dream of walking down the red carpet with Taylor Swift and Bruno Mars, most of us will have to settle for a martini in front of our television sets.
ZING® Vodka, the newest addition to the premium vodka category, and popular New York mixologist Niccole Trzaska (https://twitter.com/DrinksByNiccole) have teamed up to develop custom cocktails to honor Grammy nominees. Made with regular and Red Velvet vodka, these cocktails are sure to add “zing” to any Grammy party.
