Spodee Wine

As this is a Southern blog, I try not to delve off the path to feature artists north of the Mason Dixon or west of Texas...but there's always room for southern inspired creations that are packaged perfectly-  like Spodee Wine, made and bottled in Washingtonville, New York. 

As shared on their site, "Spodee was a Depression era hooch that mixed up homemade country wines with garden herbs, spices and moonshine. The resulting brew was then put into whatever containers they happened to have lying around...hence, the milk bottle." 

The clever and creative folks over at Spodee have also created a myriad of recipes to mix with their wine concoction. I decided to try the Ruby Fizz...

Spodee Wine has 18% alcohol content so it packs a punch for sure. My friend Wendy helped me make the fizz cocktail, which we sipped throughout the shoot. Spodee itself has a rather unique taste that is slightly sweet with hints of chocolate. The Ruby Fizz was fun to sip on but I personally prefer my Spodee just straight out of the bottle or split with coke (a Spodee and Sody). Whatever your heart desires. The nice thing is, there's lots of options with lots of ways to mix this ...
