Election Fatigue? Try the “Politikerleden” Cocktail Cure!


November 2, 2016 – Can’t wait until November 9 and the end of political commercials on TV and mailboxes stuffed with political flyers?  If you’ve been paying attention, whether Republican, Democrat, Independent, Undecided or just plain confused, you deserve a drink to relax you.

The Danes have the answer.  You need a Politikerleden, a name and a drink created by Danzka Vodka for the politically weary.  Fresh blackberries add a healthy dose of antioxidants and the lavender is widely regarded to aid in relaxation and lowering blood pressure.  Mix up a batch and cheers to November 9th!
