Meet My Drinking Partner Tito’s Vodka

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

I confess. I like vodka. One could say it’s my favorite drink of choice. We do enjoy wine and beer but my go-to alcoholic beverage is vodka. If you follow our Food Travelist Facebook, Twitter or Instagram accounts you would be impressed with the number of different vodka cocktails we have been able to feature.

My favorite Tito’s Handmade Vodka Cocktail.

Of course, I have a favorite brand. It’s Tito’s Vodka. I’ve tried many types of vodka, both domestic and imported. No matter how many I sample, I always return to my brand of choice – Tito’s. My signature cocktail is Tito’s Vodka with club soda (freshly made with sparkling water from my Soda Stream is the best), a large slice of fresh lemon, and one giant ice cube. Period. Simple, easy, refreshing, and tasty.

There are so many reasons that I enjoy Tito’s Handmade Vodka.

3 Top Reasons I Like Tito’s Vodka

1. It’s American Made in Austin, Texas – yes! We love to support American products when we can. Tito’s is made in Texas’ oldest distillery. It’s made from corn – so it’s gluten-free. They still taste-test every batch. Whether you’re a connoisseur or a casual vodka drinker you’ll appreciate their hand-crafted style.

2. Started by entrepreneur Tito Beveridge. We’re entrepreneurs. We love to support other entrepreneurs whenever we can. Tito had been a geologist, worked in the mortgage business, and started making his own flavored vodkas for friends. They loved it! He did his research, did the work, and created the brand we love today.

3. It Tastes Great! All this wouldn’t mean a darn thing if the vodka didn’t taste great.

Bonus Points: They Support Animals!  Their program Vodka for Dog Lovers brings their fans together with many pet shelters and pet-helping organizations.  Selling branded pet products and donating the proceeds to their charity pet-friendly partners is just one of the ways Tito’s helps.
