The Happiest Hour

KEEL pairs well with a variety of ingredients. What are you in the mood for?

The Skinny Mule

The famous “Moscow Mule” was the drink that helped Vodka’s popularity explode in this country during the 1940’s. Crafted with KEEL Vodka, our spin gives this beast of burden a healthy kick. 

2oz KEEL Vodka

4oz ginger beer
1 lime wedge

In an ice-filled highball glass, pour KEEL Vodka and lime juice.
Top it all off with ginger beer, garnish with a lime wedge and saddle up.

Green Flash

Sailing lore tells that those who’ve witnessed the elusive Green Flash will receive everlasting luck. The Green Flash occasionally occurs when the sun dips below the western horizon. Whether a lifetime or just the night to come, our Green Flash is truly wonderous. 

1.5oz KEEL Vodka
3/4oz Midori

Splash of fresh cranberry juice

Combine all ingredients, but the cranberry juice, in a mixer with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass, add a splash of cranberry juice and garnish with a cherry.

KEEL-Hauled Mary

While the original was named after Mary Tudor, the vicious daughter of Henry VII, we have taken the liberty of naming ours after the pirate Mary Read. As legend has it, she joined the blood-thirsty pirate “Calico” Jack Rackham after he and his band attacked Mary’s ship bound for the West Indies.
