City Pulse

By Ashley Goldsmith

We’ve all woken up the morning after a night of partying with that unbearable headache, feeling nauseous and well hung over. Thanks to the organic trend hangovers may become a thing of the past. As we know, consuming organic foods is a better option because you are not exposing yourself to harmful pesticides that are sprayed on produce and ingredient lists that are a mile long containing things you can’t even pronounce. The same concept works with liquor. For example, grain or potatoes are grown organically and used to create vodka. Resulting in an organic product. The distillation of vodka burns virtually all of its impurities away; leaving you with a pure product that will spare you the agony of the morning after.

With martinis being my libation of choice, I decided to give Crop Vodka a try. Crop is made from USDA certified organic grain grown in fertile soil free of artificial fertilizers, pesticides and chemicals. Impressively smooth and mild, Crop can be enjoyed on it’s own or mixed with your favorite fresh squeezed juice. Try the tomato flavor in your Sunday brunch Bloody Mary or enjoy the crisp and refreshing taste of the cucumber flavor simply chilled and served straight up. So next time your out with friends, ask the bartender to clean up your dirty martini.

Or, for a scrumptious after-dinner delight, mix up one of these babies:


2 parts Crop Organic Cucumber Vodka
1 part lemon juice
3 parts muddled strawberries
fresh mint leaf
