I drink green, I see green and I feel green

Most students don’t have the money to afford $15 dollar vodkas much less $35 dollar organic vodkas. Towson student, Katie Barrett is a bartender at Luckies at Power Plant Live and she sells Tru Vodka cocktails.

“Since we get the bottles of vodka for less money because we buy in bulk, we sell call drinks and top shelf drinks for about $7-$10. So if they are interested in trying out something new, they don’t need to buy an entire bottle,” Barrett said.

Barrett said that there was a big Tru Vodka promotion at Luckie’s and the promo girls were giving out free samples. The cocktails were screwdrivers which are Tru Vodka and orange juice. They were put in shot glasses and given to customers free of charge.

“Organic vodka is a new thing so people are unsure of how it’s going to taste. The promotion was a great turn out because it turned out that the customers were giving back great feedback. It tastes just like vodka, I’d say the only difference is that it may taste a little stronger than the average vodka,” Barrett said.

The promo girls were giving out t-shirts and bead necklaces that had Tru Vodka’s name on it. They were trying to put their name out there so that people will start to recognize Tru Vodka as an everyday top shelf vodka.

“I’d warn students to try to not drink Tru Vodka too fast. Since you’re mixing the vodka with juice, it can sneak up on you and you can become very drunk very quickly,” Barrett said.

It’s safe to say that Tru Vodka has gotten approval from the public and that organic vodka may become the new Grey Goose. It’s definitely a bang for your buck.


Green Vodka

When I think of vodka, I think of the powerful clear alcohol that students love to drink. So then what is green vodka? It isn’t actually green, but it is organic. What that means is that the materials used to make the vodka needs to come from organic farms. There are no pesticides used in the grains of the alcohol and no nitrogen or chemicals were used to distill the vodka.

Tru Organic Vodka

The most popular organic vodkas are Square 1 Vodka , Rain Vodka, Tru Vodka and Vodka 14. By drinking these vodkas, whether it’s straight or in a cocktail, it is cleaner to drink. Organic vodka has become popular due to the trend in greener goals for the environment. The producers of the vodkas believe that if it’s helping the earth a little bit by using less chemicals and pesticides then it is worth it to make an effort. Since the use in organic foods has become a trend, it only makes sense for companies to start producing organic alcohol. It isn’t hard to sell and they have become popular among hotels. A couple of big name chain hotels started carrying organic alcohols for their bars and they are the Marriott and the Ritz-Carlton.

Although the prices of organic vodka may be a little steeper than the average Smirnoff or Grey Goose , it is worth the money. It’s a cleaner taste for a cleaner environment.

Organic Yummies

Organic food has become a new trend within colleges. Trying to eat healthy has become a goal for many Americans since we are known in the world for being one of the most unhealthiest countries. So what exactly is organic food? Organic foods are produce or meats that do not use pesticides, insecticides and or herbicides to maintain them.

Because organic food has become so popular lately, supermarkets other than the popular organic supermarkets like:Wegmans,Whole Food’s andTrader Joes, regular supermarkets have started putting up organic food sections.

AtSafeway, Shoppers Food Warehouse and Super Fresh are among the many grocery stores that have started to carry organic foods. I went to Super Fresh the other day and noticed that their big organic section was fruit, specifically apples.

Apples are among the many fruits that have gone organic.


I’ve noticed that besides supermarkets, restaurants have started to incorporate organic food in their recipes as well. In the Baltimore area there are numerous organic restaurants to choose from. Cafes like Flying Avocado in Owings Mills provide the most natural and organic food to their customers. A variety of food ranging from salads, wraps and sandwiches, Flying Avocado incorporates healthy ingredients in their healthy foods. Even nice restaurants like Woodberry Kitchen uses organic meats from local farmers to give the utmost deliciously clean foods.
