WAVE Vodka..Adds Two New Flavors

The eye-catching colors of WAVE Vodka, its bold flavors and reasonable pricing have made it increasingly popular since its release this past summer. Flavors such as pink lemonade, grape, whipped cream, blue raspberry can now welcome baja & lemon lime.

I LOVE the look of all the bottles and when presented at a party or as a gift will bring an immediate smile to friends faces… especially those that love experiencing with new vodkas. Pink lemonade is great on the rocks or added to lemonade for a truly refreshing drink. How about a whipped cream float? That’s what happens when you add WAVE whipped cream to root beer. Make a riptide with baja when you add cranberry & iced tea. These are just a few of the fun spring & summer drinks you can create.

Catch the WAVE..visit www.WAVEVodka.com for plenty of delectable drink recipes.
