BY GWEN KENNEALLY

What could be better than a great crafted artisan vodka company who partners with an organization that promotes social justice? And a top mixoligist creates an amazing martini.  It is a win/win!

“The Give a Damn Campaign is excited to be a part of Van Gogh Vodka’s Cocktails without Prejudice,” said Cyndi Lauper, co-founder of the Give a Damn Campaign. “The company’s commitment to raising awareness and funds for our shared mission is truly inspiring. It is time for things to change and through this program we will be able to make a real difference in encouraging everyone to give a damn about equality.”

Introduced in 2008, the artfully crafted Van Gogh Blue Triple Wheat Vodka is a smooth and inviting blend of premium European wheat sourced from Holland, Germany and France. Van Gogh Blue Triple Wheat Vodka hand-crafted in small batches through a unique triple distillation method, which maintains the integrity of the natural ingredients, and ensures Van Gogh Blue Triple Wheat Vodka is everything you’d expect in an ultra-premium vodka. Buy it here.   Need Monin cinnamon syrup? Find it here 

I invite you to have a weekend cocktail that inspires great conversation around equality for everyone! Cheers!
