Fab Find: Jane St Vodka Soda
Newly launched in Nashville, Jane St Vodka Soda is the first to market vodka soda, a ready-to-drink carbonated cocktail.
I absolutely love this new pre-bottled offering for a variety of reasons, with the greatest being that it solves a real problem for me. Since developing a wine allergy, I’ve been the person stuck in the kitchen at friends’ parties mixing cocktails while everyone else is able to just pour a glass of wine. Now all I have to do is take along a bottle of Jane St and I can pour with ease just like everyone else!
This is the very reason that Elizabeth Wiltgen, a Los Angeles mom of two, created Jane St. The consummate hostess, she often found herself spending all of her time at parties mixing drinks when she really wanted to be mingling with guests.
Naturally sweetened with agave nectar, Jane St’s gourment vodka sodas come in four artisanal flavor combinations:
Original with Lime
Grapefruit Meyer Lemon
Jane St is available in Georgia, California, Colorado and, now, Tennessee as well as online for shipping in other areas. Each 750 ml bottle retails for $15.99-$17.99. (The company also has plans to offer a 4 pack of 200 ml mini bottles and an extension of flavors in the future.)
While I really enjoyed all four of the flavors, my favorite was definitely the Pineapple Jalapeno, followed by the Original with Lime. As you can probably guess, the Pineapple Jalepeno has a little kick of spice to it, and I’ve always been a sucker for the sweet & heat combination in my cocktails. I have a feeling several bottles of this delicious drink will be consumed at my house this summer!
