Drink of the week: Moscow on the Hill's Referent Horseradish Vodka
Referent Horseradish Vodka $4.25 Moscow on the Hill 371 Selby Ave., St Paul 651.291.236 website
Russians know a few things about eating and drinking in the winter; gathering to dine on doughy dumplings filled with meat, onions, or potatoes--topped with rich sour cream-- and warming up to a rosy-red flush with an icy shot of vodka.
Moscow on the Hill perfects this tradition by creating their own vodkas. Their Referent Horseradish Vodka is made in New Richmond, WI. at a family-run distillery, using locally grown horseradish--the heat has a distinct freshness, and the savory pickle garnish perfectly cuts the bite.
Moscow on the Hill offers several house vodka including garlic and dill, pepper, or --if prefer sweetness--cherry. Try a shot at their impressive happy hour: Monday-Thursday 5-6 and 9-10. Friday-Sunday 4-6--all house vodka shot are half price. Za vashe zdorovye! To your health!
