New “unique” holidays are like buses, every 15 minutes there is a new one showing up on your calendar, but only a certain few stick out and deserve to be celebrated.
October 4 marks National Vodka Day. Yes, vodka is the most popular liquor sold in the U.S. There is no better way to celebrate this day then with the 75-year old Moscow Mule “the drink that started it all” — that is, vodka’s popularity in the United States.
So, embrace your first Tuesday of the month with a crisp and refreshing Ketel One Mule, perfectly blended with Ketel One Vodka, voted the #1 vodka for a Moscow Mule by Drinks International in 2016 (Ketel One Vodka also remains the most recommended vodka to consumers by bartender’s year over year).
With 11 generations of distilling expertise behind them, the Nolet family created Ketel One Vodka to exude a smooth textured, premium spirit perfectly mixed in any cocktail.
To appreciate its rich flavor and versatility, try the Ketel One Vodka Ultimate Martini, a sophisticated cocktail simply stirred with ice and garnished with a lemon twist.
