New Amsterdam Vodka: Make the smoother choice this New Years!

Happy Holidays! I know most of you are probably preparing for your New Year’s Celebrations as of now- and I have a fantastic recommendation for you for your spirit choice this New Years: New Amsterdam Vodka!New-Amsterdam-Vodka-Bottle

New Amsterdam Vodka is the latest spirit choice from the Gallo family of brands, and it is available wherever alcohol is sold, so it shouldn’t be too difficult to find. Perfect for Millennial’s and Hipsters, but also an excellent smooth variety of vodka for the more seasoned and distinguished palate. New Amsterdam Vodka is a great choice for your New Years Cocktails, or you can also drink it straight on the rocks.  Because of it’s smoothness, the on the rocks is definitely an option.

When I first sampled this vodka, which is advertised as “five times distilled, five times smooth”, I was a little skeptical, and I certainly hoped it didn’t have that unpleasant aftertaste that many vodkas have these days.  Well, I was pleasantly surprised! It was smooth, crisp, refreshing, and definitely hits that sweet spot after sampling. The other great thing about this vodka is the price.  For an entire bottle we bought it sale at CVS for $8.99, which is a great deal.  For the price of this vodka you should probably get a few bottles, or a supply big enough for your entire party. When comparing the price of New Amsterdam Vodka to other brands like Smirnoff or Bacardi, you are certainly getting a better value- especially since this vodka is distilled in a more refined way than other “discount” vodkas.   Add New Amsterdam Vodka to your holiday bar set up and you won’t be disappointed!
