What’s better than a deal on alcoholic beverages? Probably a deal on alcoholic beverages on National vodka day — and VIDE has us covered. To celebrate National Vodka Day on October 4th, VIDE – Premium Canned Cocktails will be selling their pre-mixed vodka soda 4-packs of 12-ounce cans for $9.99 (which is regularly priced at around $11.99) on their website drinkvide.com for the day.
VIDE is a conveniently ready-to-drink product with a hint of natural fruit flavor that comes in two varieties: Cranberry and Watermelon. Cranberry is perfect for those who are looking to jump into fall and Watermelon for those who want one last taste of summer. Which will you choose?
The best part is that VIDE is made with only three ingredients – carbonated water, six times distilled gluten-free vodka, and a dash of natural cranberry/watermelon flavor. In addition, it is crisp, refreshing, and light! The 5% ABV beverage is only 99 calories, gluten-free, and contains zero sugar or zero carbs — which all makes it easier to not fret about extra calories
VIDE WATERMELON COCKTAIL:
– 2-3 Frozen Watermelon Chunks (cut into cubes)
– 1 Watermelon VIDE can
– 1 Lime
– Mint to garnish
Place frozen watermelon chunks in glass, pour Watermelon VIDE on top. Squeeze 1/4th of a lime into glass and stir. Place mint leaf and fresh lime wedge to garnish.
VIDE was founded in 2019 by college best friends Ryan Laverty and Sal Campisi. The pair, who are both 26 years old, came together to create VIDE when they realized there was a gap in the market for a ready-to-drink product made with real vodka and shared a vision to deliver convenience and clean ingredients to the modern drinker.
VIDE is regularly priced at around $11.99 (for a 4-pack of 12-ounce cans) and can be shipped to 35 states. To find if shipping is available in your state, please visit: https://drinkvide.com/order-online.
