Story: This dreamy vacation cocktail is what I like to imagine Van Gogh would be sipping on during those low key summer moments. Knowing that Van Gogh was one heck of an absinthe lover, I wanted to incorporate this historic spirit by way of paying homage to his preferences. Van Gogh Vodka is the perfect vehicle for making these flavors pop in the glass. Forward, adventurous, and fit for a creative just like Van Gogh himself. Follow Alex Koblan on Instagram @AKoblan
