American Harvest, New Organic Vodka: Try Florida-Inspired Cocktails (Recipe)

In a market flooded with synthetic, sweet vodkas in flavors like Swedish fish, Fruit Loops, and yes, glazed doughnuts -- a pure, natural one is a breath of fresh air. Hence the appeal of American Harvest, a new organic spirit by the makers of Grey Goose.

The new vodka is popping up in bars, restaurants, and clubs all over Miami. There's enough fake crap accompanying Miami's nightlife as it is, so at least you can go au naturale with your vodka.

Sidney Frank Importing Co. is the brand behind the new booze. It also created Grey Goose but sold it in 2004 and has been out of the vodka biz for awhile. The company focused instead on its other products, such as Jägermeister, but is now back in the game with American Harvest.
