    The Drink You’ll Crave All Summer: Berry, Rhubarb & Vanilla Collins

    The classic Vodka Collins has infinite opportunity for variation, but none so delicious as a pairing of two Simple Goodness Sisters’ Syrups: Rhubarb Vanilla and Berry Sage.   Paired together in this vodka Collins with a little bit of fresh lemon juice, the result is part fresh squeezed lemonade stand at a country fair, and part your great Aunt’s strawberry rhubarb pie. A vodka collins is made with fresh citrus juice, vodka, club soda, and the sweetener of your choosing. Obviously, we choose Simple Goodness Sisters’ syrups, for tasty, unique flavors reflective of the Northwest where we grow and craft cocktails.

    The Simple Goodness Sisters got our first brush with celebrity this week, when interviewed by famous and widely acclaimed (James Beard award winners!) Seattle chefs Tom Douglas and Thierry Rauturneau. We were not nervous one tiny bit, and if you believe that, Venise will sell you some ocean front property in Arizona next. What is also true, however, is that the syrups also had their TV debut this week! Read the blog for links to watch and listen.
