Tagged:

We’d like to make you an offer you can’t refuse. Meet Gianni Russo, famous for his role in The Godfather as Carlo Rizzi, and taste Don Corleone Vodka yourself at select Binny’s on the dates and times below. Pick up a bottle for Father’s Day or to celebrate the 45th anniversary of the classic film, “The Godfather”. Often imitated, but never duplicated, The Godfather has stood the test of time. We think you’ll find the same is true for Don Corleone Vodka. Incredibly smooth and refreshing, this vodka will get the job done without question, or hesitation.

Cocktail: The Ultimate Root Beer Float

Tagged:

smirnoff root beer float vodka binnysNational Root Beer Float Day may only come once a year, but we’ve found multiple reasons to celebrate with this Ultimate Root Beer Float like it’s every day!

 

1. It’s made with Sprecher Bourbon Barrel Hard Root Beer. When root beer first came around, it was brewed as a light alcohlic beverage. So we were pretty pumped when Sprecher came out with their own version of this 18th century liquid invention.
2. It involves Ice Cream. ANY KIND YOU WANT. (But we prefer Edy’s Vanilla Bean… yum)
3. Drinking anything out of a frosted mug is, well, pretty much amazing.
4. The Root Beer Float Vodka makes it right. Seriously.
5. What else do we have to say?

 

It’s time to get your scoopers out and start celebrating this tasty tradition rooted all the way back to the 18th century!

 

The Ultimate Root Beer Float

 

Ingredients:
2 oz Smirnoff Root Beer Float Vodka
Sprecher Root Beer
Vanilla Bean Ice Cream

 

Simple Steps:
First, in a frosted mug, add two scoops of vanilla bean ice cream. Pour the 2 ounces of Root Beer Vodka on top. Finally, pour Sprecher Root beer until satisfied!

Show Your Pride

In celebration of PRIDE month, and in light of today’s news, Binny’s is happy to highlight two brands that are making a stride in the LBGT community.

 

Halsted VodkaEgalite Sparkling

Halsted Vodka, named after a community in our own backyard, launched in October 2012. They donate 15% of the company’s founding equity and 15% of their profits to the LGBT community.

 

Égalité, introduced in January 2013, is the first nationally-distributed wine created in support of LGBT equality in the United States and around the world. Meaning ‘Equality,’ the name Égalité is both a reflection of the wine’s French origin and a celebration of equality for gay Americans.

 

 

VIOLET : The Halsted Taylor

 
The queen of the screen, Elizabeth Taylor lit up our lives for over sixty years. She also supported our community when many were afraid to.  The Halsted Taylor is a stylish mix of Halsted Vodka, Chambord and Citrus, creating a drink reminiscent of her unique and dazzling violet eyes.
 
2 oz Halsted Vodka
1 oz Chambord
Dash of lemon juice
Lemonade
 
Pour the Halsted Vodka and Chambord into a tall glass with ice. Mix. Add the lemon juice and top with lemonade.

 

 
Cheers to equality!
