Devotion Vodka Party at Son Cubano

My recap of October events continues, with a Devotion Vodka party at Son Cubano in West New York, NJ.  The party was filled with guests, Cuban food, and a sampling of Devotion Vodka with 10's, 20's, 30's, 40's and 50's-themed signature cocktails to celebrate the 50th birthday of Founder/CEO of Devotion Vodka. 

It's not everyday you stumble upon a vodka that's different from all the rest. What makes Devotion Vodka unique? 
  • It's propriety brand that is the first and only sugar-free and gluten-free Vodka family on the market. 
  • Distilled from 100% high grade USA Corn.
  • 100% Non GMO
  • The world's smoothest six times distilled, multi-filtered, 80 Proof Vodka. (All flavors 80 proof).
  • Uses de-ionized water to ensure the industry's highest quality water source.
  • partnered with Allen Flavors (makers of Arizona Iced Tea) to create FDA & FEMA GRAS approved allergen-free flavors.

What amazed me the most is that after several drinks, my face did not turn red or start to feel warm. I usually get the Asian glow after a half a glass, and I didn't feel that happening at all. I also didn't feel hungover the next morning or get any headaches! 

Devotion Vodka's flavors include Tiki Tea, Wild Cherry. Blood Orange, Black & Blue, Cosmo, and Coconut. I'm really excited about Tiki Tea, since I'm a tea drinker. It didn't even taste like it had vodka in it. My favorite of the signature cocktails was definitely the 10's: Little Andy - Devotion Coconut, pineapple juice, and a splash of club soda.
