charbay makes fruity vodkas

that's marko, slicing oranges. sigh
booze is booze and it’s not like there aren’t a buncha flavored vodkas out there. But Charbay, a boutique spiritier from napa valley, uses prestige fruit such as meyer lemons, key limes, and blood oranges. the vodkas come in fine opaque bottles worthy of holding perfume. and while this has nothing to do with anything, the family-run company has a dreamy front-guy, Marko Karakasevic, who’s a 12th-generation master distiller, oh yeah baby. in dallas, you can buy charbay at sigel’s, centennial, goody goody, etc. or else order your charbay cosmo at nikita, republic, zubar, o bar, morton’s, and the mansion. (grey goose=ancient history.) coming later this year from charbay: pear brandy and a vodka made with green tea.

ok, why has this item not brought one single comment? doesn't everyone, or every real foodie/winey, know that you can make your own flavored vodka simply by adding a few flavoring ingredients, say the peel of a meyer lemon, into a bottle of vodka and stashing it in the freezer until the flavors gel. from experience, however, i have learned that you have to be careful and take the flavoring ingredient out before the infusion gets too strong. once made some lemon vodka -- plain, not meyer -- that would have peeled paint.
