Starting last Tuesday and ending this past Sunday, the 8th year of the largest and most epic spirits and mixology event in the U.S. took place in New Orleans, LA.

However, the new UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is infused with real green tea leaves — which means it has to have some sort of antioxidant property. Right? Please don’t burst my bubble… See the full post »
