Pearl Persephone Vodka

Eventho "pomegranate" has been covered here recently, and eventho "flavored vodkas" seems pretty beat, the combo of pom + vodka = ka-pow! Becuz 1. it’s enterprising of Pearl to jump so quickly on a new trend in cocktails. And 2. pom as a bar ingredient is a full-circle thing since pom used 2B the secret ingredient in grenadine. And 3. the name Persephone Vodka draws on the Greek myth about the daughter of Ceres, goddess of the harvest, whose consumption of pom seeds gave us seasons and that's cool when a contemp product evokes the classics. FYI, this just in from AC Nielsen: In 2005, pom juice sales increased 800 % since 04.

clairevoyant, Pearl's publicist (who is excellent in terms of quick response time) sez that the drinkie is available nationally at "most grocery stores and liquor stores"

Sscuvkg, is both my word for today and very likely the vodka of Slovenia, or a '...stan' country.

Apparently, TG, Pearl's publicist has never been to Texas ... or the Dallas area, at least. Vodka available in grocery stores? You can't even buy good sherries in grocery stores.

Hey, dean, good to see you back. Where've you been?

I thought Pearl was BEER. The best goddamned beer out of San Antonio. I like the old squatty bottles better though.
