This 100% Organic Flavored Vodka Was Inspired by Wellness Shots

Merging natural living with a bit of indulgence, Frankly Organic Vodka bears little resemblance to the vodkas you’ve sipped before. With flavored varieties inspired by wellness shots, this Austin-made corn vodka is 100% organic, non-GMO, made with all-natural ingredients, and contains anti-inflammatories like turmeric, digestive-soothing ginger root, and adaptogens like maca.

Though vodka isn’t my favorite spirit, this stuff is something special. The flavored vodkas I’ve tried before were often cloying and artificial, but these five varieties — pomegranate, strawberry, grapefruit, apple, and original — boast clean, sophisticated flavors that aren’t overly sweet.

I didn’t expect the apple variety to be all that exciting, but it truly is. Ginger, cherry bark, and a bit of cayenne meld with apples to make a lightly sweet spirit with a bite that’s perfect on its own or on the rocks. It’s also the basis for a tasty Apple Sangria (recipe at bottom of page) and a variation on the classic Moscow Mule.

Frankly Organics strawberry variety, balanced with lemon, turmeric, and ginger, is easy to sip on its own. It also mixes well with limoncello and is the centerpiece of a White Summer Sangria. The pomegranate variety didn’t work on its own for me, but is tasty topped with soda water or in a cocktail like a Pom-tini or a Pomegranate Flower.

A hint of Ceylon cinnamon in Frankly Organics’ Grapefruit variety makes for easy sipping over ice or in a spritz with Aperol and sparkling wine.

The first company in the world to be completely transparent about the ingredients in their spirits, Frankly Organics features a complete ingredient list on every bottle, even though it isn’t required by law. Eminently smooth and gluten-free, it’s distilled in small batches and contains no refined sugars or artificial flavors or colors.

The pureness of taste and high quality of Frankly Organics range of vodkas makes this a true standout great for summer cocktails. I plan to make that grapefruit spritz recipe soon! Purchase online, or click here to find a store near you.
