“Just when you thought the kale craze was over, here comes kale-flavored vodka. But this surprising newcomer, made in California from a corn vodka base, isn’t green and doesn’t taste like every hipster’s favorite leafy vegetable. Instead, it is clear in the glass and has a refreshing cucumber-spa-water feel to it, finishing with a lemon-pepper exhale.” Contributed by Kara Newman FULL ARTICLE
Asian-Americans Tried A Vodka That Allegedly Lessens "Asian Glow" And Things Got Weird "I feel great, I just want to hug everybody in this room — I feel super. I for sure would try this again. Usually I'll take one shot and feel like I'm going to throw up everywhere, but I feel really good.” "Yeah, no, this is nothing. This is like me just doing a few sit-ups. This is probably how I normally turn when I take a Pepcid. So — without taking Pepcid, an added chemical, just taking alcohol — this is actually great.”

“Of course kale vodka is now a thing” Hey @GwynethPaltrow!! Third time a charm to me mentioned in a #VINGvodka article! During an appearance in Tampa, Florida, full-time Goop-er and occasional Stark Industries employee Gwyneth Paltrow shared some of the secrets to her aspirational lifestyle. “It’s all about moderation,” she enthusiastically told the crowd. “I love kale, but I also love vodka.” Well good news, Gwyneth, because now those two things are available in one small batch-produced bottle.
If SNL's "The Californians" sketch had lived to see the crest of the kale trend, you could pull over to the side of the 10 or the 5 or the 101—but probably not any of the canyons, where there's like, almost no shoulder, dude—and place a safe bet that there would've been an entire skit devoted to the superfood. But now, as if plucked from the minds behind the quintessential L.A. satire, the most stereotypical Los Angeles alcohol has arrived—and it's honestly pretty good. This Kale Vodka is the most LA spirit ever
A large number of celebrities made the scene, including Chris Noth, Babyface, RJ Mitte, Amaury Nolasco, Ernie Hudson, Isaiah Washington, Jordin Sparks, Kelsea Ballerini, Roland Martin and Sofia Milos. TAO Social Media founder Rafi Antebyorganized the event.

Vinger lives in Los Angeles (if you couldn’t tell), and shifted gears from performing as an actor and dancer to learning about spirits and cocktails. According to Time Out, she started researching the health benefits of kale after several family members were diagnosed with cancer. After discovering that liquor infused with kale had never been done commercially (I wonder why?), she spent four years experimenting until she created the perfect recipe.The Back Label Article by Allison Russo
