The craft of creating the perfect cocktail is pretty amazing, a science really. Mixing different alcohols with various juices or with fresh herbs can create unique flavors that can signal the season. We enjoy warm, rich, and hearty drinks during winter months and sip sangria, fruity and light drinks when warmer weather hits.

Made from grape, grain, and sugarcane, Tahoe Blue Vodka is distilled by hand three times in small batches. This care gives the alcohol a smooth, clean texture and flavor versatility that makes it the perfect base for craft cocktails. Tahoe Blue Vodka is a great addition to your summer drinks.
