Mojito Time!

effenThe other night my husband and I went out to dinner and I noticed a new Mojito on the menu. It was made with Effen Cucumber Vodka instead of rum so I had to try it. It was so delicious I had to try and make it for myself at home. This cocktail has quickly become a neighborhood favorite and I hope it will be yours too.

In a shaker add 4 slices of cucumber and a sprig of fresh mint, muddle lightly (I don’t have a muddler but used the back of a wooden spoon and it works great).



1 part Effen Cucumber Vodka

3 parts Powell & Mahoney Mojito Mix

Top with a splash of club soda

Stir and pour into a highball glass.

A Visit From Robert Hall

robert hallMy career with the City of Eden Prairie has given me so many fun opportunities to meet extremely interesting people. Last week I had the privilege of meeting a wine industry legend, Robert Hall. Robert is originally from White Bear Lake, Minnesota. A lifelong entrepreneur, Robert’s past sucess include ventures in construction, bowling centers, travel agencies, liquor stores, restaurants and champion horse breeding. In the late 1970’s Robert and his family visited France and he was captivated by the winery lifestyle. It took years of hard work and exploring appellations to finally find the perfect growing terroir in the Paso Robles appellation of California. Robert and his wife Margaret started the Hall Ranch in the early 90’s. Since then he has been producing award winning wines.

Come in and grab a bottle at any of our three locations you will not be disappointed!

All Shook Up…Over Coconut Water Infused Vodka

three-olives-bottle-elvis-presley-coconut-water-siloI was visiting with Faye Majkozak, Assistant Manager at the Eden Prairie Liquor store near Rainbow Foods, last Friday and she was “all shook up” by the new Three Olives Elvis Presley Coconut Water Vodka.

The bottle is very eye catching with a frosted glass bottle and a hologram featuring Elvis singing in a white sequenced jump suit complete with cape and a bunch of  Hawaiian leis around his neck.

Faye was hooked with one sip and was instantly  transported to the beaches of Blue Hawaii. It is summer in a bottle!  It has very smooth coconut flavors and is great with a variety of juices and sodas.

Three Olives Elvis Presley Coconut Water Infused Vodka is available at all three Eden Prairie Liquor stores, and a Liter retails for $16.99.

Try it for yourself and see if Three Olives can make you “all shook up!”
