We’re Toasting: The Dallas Stars and New Amsterdam Vodka

Let’s raise a glass to the Dallas Stars! 2020 Western Conference Champions, heading into the Stanley Cup finals for the first time in twenty years! We have been watching a lot of Dallas Stars hockey lately, and New Amsterdam Vodka is playing a key role as a presenting sponsor for the playoffs. In the grand scheme of vodka, it isn’t the fanciest, and definitely not the most expensive, but it is a solid brand with a variety of flavor options that create tasty cocktails, even when just mixed with soda and lime.

Walking into your local liquor store to pick up a bottle of vodka can be somewhat daunting, especially if you literally have no idea what kind of vodka you are looking for. Produced from corn (the same thing as Bourbon), New Amsterdam Vodka is five-time distilled, and three times filtered, the 100 proof spirit is smooth, silky, and very easy to enjoy. In a variety of flavors including grapefruit, mango, lemon, and red berry.

Mix up one of these as you watch the Dallas Stars in their Stanley Cup run, and fingers crossed we have a successful end to this season…can’t we all use a little bright light in this weird 2020 year. #Cheers
