Texas-Made CINCO Vodka Founder Will be in Dallas Saturday! Samples!


One of the sponsors of the San Antonio Cocktail Conference was CINCO Vodka. The vodka, made in San Antonio, is  distilled, blended and filtered in small batches. This Saturday,  owner and founder, Richard N. Azar III, will be in town to offer free samples at Sigel’s Elite (3209 N. Fitzhugh – in uptown). The tasting will take place from 1pm to 4pm. Bottles (750ml) retail for $21.99 and an autograph from the founder is free. Sounds like a chance to stock up for the Super Bowl to me.

In case you need something to do with a bottle of vodka, I’ve got a recipe for something that can be created during one of the advertising breaks. Jump for it!
