Recipes: Get Boozy with Stateside Urbancraft Vodka Cocktails
By Katelynn Luczkow on August 10, 2016
A wonderful, boozy time was had this past Friday with Stateside Urbancraft Vodka Co-Founder Bryan Quigley and Bartender Kyle DiRaddo. As we sipped on our drinks, Bryan and Kyle shared details on distilling vodka, crafting cocktails, and more importantly, their soon-to-open Federal Distilling Room – a tasting room where you’ll be able to enjoy delicious Stateside Vodka cocktails. At the end of the evening, they were kind enough to leave us with some recipes from the evening. So if you’re looking to shake things up, look below for some vodka-based cocktail recipes straight from the source!
