1. Elit!

    Elit by Stolichnaya is smooth, clean, and luxurious. Stolichnaya calls it “Ultra Luxury” Vodka.


    Elit is “achieved through an obsession with accuracy and a unique freeze filtration.”

    While many claim that Vodka has no taste or is mere a mixer vodka lovers know better.

    Elit has a dry finish. To my palate there is a lovely faint hint of citrus.

    This lovely sipping vodka feels gorgeous in your mouth.


    The bottle is as elegant as the contents. It is beautiful to look at and drink Elit.

    This makes it perfect for the holidays to serve at festive gatherings or to give as a special gift to a vodka lover.

    It is priced (RSP) at $60.


    Here are two lovely cocktails for the season.
