The South's Best Tasting Vodka · 100% American-Made · 6x Distilled · Gluten-Free · 80 Proof · Distilled in Charleston, SC

I am hoping one day soon that we will make it back to the South.  It has been way too long since we visited Savannah, GA. And, I am longing to walk along the beach at Tybee Island, or walk the quaint streets with all the cute shops in Savannah, and even Charleston, SC.  Just the other day, I had a photo pop up on my Facebook feed showing me pregnant with our first daughter, who we ended up naming Savannah after Savannah, GA, with my husband on our final trip to the South.  We wanted to get in one final trip before we became first time parents.  Shortly after welcoming Savannah, we welcomed her sister 15 months later.  And, with the craziness of life and parenting, we haven't made it back...and, boy do I miss -- all that done home cooking and Southern hospitality.  There is nothing like it, and I can't wait to share this finally with my two girls.  They hear me talking about Savannah, GA and the South all the time, and we have photos all over the house of magnolia trees and landmarks from Savannah, GA.  Crossing my fingers one day soon we will make a trip there.  But, in the meantime, my husband and I have been enjoying a little Southern comfort in the form of vokda...Dixie Vokda to be exact.  

More about Dixie Vodka:

The South's leading premium craft vodka. Made from 100% all-American ingredients in Charleston, South Carolina. 6x distilled from corn, Dixie is available in our core Southern Vodka, along with five authentically Southern flavors. Voted the South's Best Tasting Vodka.

"Dixie Vodka was launched in 2014 with a simple mission: to create an all-American premium craft vodka that represented the best of Southern flavor, craftsmanship, and hospitality. We’ve come a long way from selling our vodka door-to-door in our hometown of Charleston, South Carolina, but our mission has remained the same. We continue to search high and low to uncover the best flavors of the South to hand-infuse into our award-winning lineup of vodkas. 

They come from small towns and big cities; they are grown from our soil, are crafted by our hands, and represent the South in our backyard and beyond—just like all of us.

"Raise a glass of Dixie Vodka to celebrate and enjoy the many different flavors of the South that unite us and remind us about what it means to be Made in America, Raised in the South"


The kind folks at Dixie Vodka sent along their Dixie Southern Vodkas, as well as their Dixie Wildflower Honey for my husband and I to enjoy, and to include in my Valentine's Day Gift Guide.  

We tried the two vodkas straight of the bottle, as well as made a handful of the cocktails that were found on their website here You don't have to be a mixologist or skilled bartender to mix up a great tasting night cap or drink to go along with your dinner, when reaching for Dixie Vodka.  While we did enjoy the two vodkas right from the bottle, we found the drink recipes we made were even tastier and helped elevate the flavors of these gluten-free vodkas.

Two drink recipes that were instant winners with us, and that you really must try out are the Southern Vodka-rita and the Honey Lavender Lemonade.  

I am also a fan of the Wildflower Hot Toddy in place of hot chocolate in the evenings, when I am trying to get the chill out of my system with the dropping temperatures.  

Each of these drinks were easy to make, and really do transport you the South, even if just in your head.  Who knew that a vodka could taste so good, and meld together different flavors that people associate with the South .  If you grew up in the South, or love the South like we do, then you really have to pick Dixie Vodka and try it for yourself.  We just finished off the two vodkas sent, and I can't wait to pick up and try the other 3 flavors, alone and with the different drink recipes provided over at the Dixie Vodka website.

If you are planning to have a nice quiet dinner night in for Valentine's Day, or like to enjoy a nice cocktail with your sweetie after a long day, why not consider picking up Dixie Vodka and adding to your liquor cabinet or bar?  Dixie Vodkas retail for only $18.99 a bottle ($22.95 if you buy online through Passion Spirits), and are available in 6 flavors -- all sure to be a hit with you and your sweetheart. The available flavors are Southern (core), Citrus, Black Pepper, Mint, Peach and Wild Flower Honey.  And, if you have a NASCAR fan in your life, then Dixie Vodka would make for a great gift idea for them, as they are the official vodka of NASCAR. :-)

You can learn more about Dixie Vodka by visiting their website at  Then, get ready to go Southern when you pour yourself a glass of Dixie Vodka.  

Who knows?...maybe you will find yourself talking with a Southern drawl. :-)  You can use the following link to find a bar near you that carries Dixie Vodka here If you don't find a local bar, be sure to request Dixie Vodka with the owner or bartender.  And, you can always buy and have Dixie Vodka delivered right to your door by shopping Passion Spirits.  After I am done with this post, I am placing my order for the other three Dixie Vodka flavors to try. :-)
