Cocktail Du Jour: Van Gogh Vodka Drinks by Jonathan Pogash {Sponsored}

Patti Stanger, Perez Hilton, Single in America event with Our friends at sure know how to serve up a stiff drink mixed with stellar panel for Singles in America! The blogging community gathered over swanky bites and an intimate conversation at Toshi’s Living Room & Penthouse in the Flatiron Hotel to talk relationships — with Patti Stanger and Perez Hilton no less! While, Jonathan Pogash, The Cocktail Guru, did a quick demo of the 3 Van Gogh Vodka signature vodka cocktails he created just in time for Valentine’s Day. van gogh vodka

Created custom for the event with the day of love in mind, Jonathan Pogash, did a pomegranate based drink using Van Gogh Pomegranate Vodka, a Bellini option based with Van Gogh Cool Peach Vodka, and a yummy sweet chocolate drink (it’s like dessert!) with Van Gogh Rich Dark Chocolate Vodka. All of the vodka based cocktails went down smooth, the pomegranate one wasn’t overly sweet or tart which I appreciated. I’m not a peach vodka person in general so the Bellini was less my speed. And the Chocolate option was way too delicious — I could sip it down in seconds. The recipe’s are below!
