A Cocktail to Cure Politikerleden

Election exhaustion has met its match 

Whether Republican, Democrat, Independent, Undecided or Unrepresented, the one thing that every American seems to agree on is, “we can’t wait for the election to be over.” Leave it to Denmark (also rumored to be the happiest nation in the world) to have actually coined a word for election exhaustion or disgust… Politikerleden.

With this in mind, the makers of DANZKA Vodka – (Danish by design) have created a cocktail designed to relieve the political-weary. Fresh blackberries add a healthy dose of antioxidants and the lavender is widely regarded to aid in relaxation and lowering blood pressure.  Mix up a batch and raise a glass to the much anticipated “day after the election”, November 9th!
