We’ve had a longstanding friendship with the folks over at Quaker City Mercantile ever since they sponsored our Natural Process show a few years ago. Their delicious collection of spirits, including many of our favorites (namely Hendrick’s Gin), is impressive to say the least and the marketing efforts they put forth behind each brand is equally as neat. They reached out to us to review their new “Spodee White”, the lighter version of regular ol’ Spodee and we were happy to oblige. We attended their event back in 2012 launching the brand which is a unique mix of wine with moonshine; a concoction surely meant to get you saucy as quickly and deliciously as possible. The original iteration of Spodee (“red”, we’ll call it) had a chocolatey taste that paired well things of the darker variety. Easy enough to drink straight, both iterations of Spodee have a unique feel to them. Packaged in what are effectively vintage-looking milk bottles with an easy rip-cap, these suckers are a no brainer to bring to your next summer party. The white version is a little fruitier than we tend to keep our drinks, however it’s been over triple digits here in Los Angeles for the past week so believe me this was a nice respite from the heat. The folks from QCM were kind enough to send over a few recipe suggestions including Spodee Sangria, Citrus Spritzer, Piña Colada, Hurricane, and on the rocks. We opted to test out the Sangria and Citrus Spritzer recipes. Click here to read the entire article.
