Our ironic libation spotlight today falls on the Russian River Resort in Guerneville, where several kooky, shark-jumping vodka brands have convinced the bar manager that their product is really going to move amongst the largely LGBT clientele.
Exhibit A is a poster for several house cocktails made with Devotion protein-infused vodka, a San Francisco-based brand whose sole press up to this point comprises two mentions in US Weekly and In Touch involving The Situation from Jersey Shore and a birthday in Vegas. The saddest drink option here, clearly, is the Diet Revolution, which is made with protein-infused vodka and Diet Coke.
But wait: There’s more.
Exhibit B, a sign taped to the bar advertising another set of drinks, this time made with Three Olives bubblegum-flavored vodka, which in and of itself should be a sign of the apocalypse. But the added bonus here is that the bar also stocks Pinnacle brand cotton-candy-flavored and whipped-cream-flavored vodka. We appreciate, though, their sales tactic: “Try [it]! It’s weird!”
