Judy’s Game Day Picks
Tito’s Handmade Vodka
Tito’s Handmade Vodka is made in Austin, Texas. A pure corn spirit, it is distilled six times in a pot still. This vodka offers aromas of tropical fruit and citrus; the palate is medium bodied and smooth with flavours of guava, passion fruit, and citrus followed by a soft finish.
Try mixing Tito’s Handmade Vodka in a “Harvey Wallbanger” cocktail. A Harvey Wallbanger is a fun and simple drink that was created in the 1950’s that became a smash hit in the 1970’s and has seen a recent revival.
- Pour vodka and orange juice into an ice filled collins glass.
- Float Galliano on top by pouring gently over the back of the spoon.

Hornitos Reposado is rested at least two months in oak vats that produces a smooth, mature character and delivers the purest agave flavor possible from wood –treated tequila. Flavour of sweet pear and spice.
Perfect game day pairings are Buffalo Wings, Guacamole and Salsa.
