Your birthday, Christmas, and New Year’s passed without your boyfriend giving you a rock.
Drown your sorrows with a new kind of gem: Enchanted Rock Vodka.
Made in San Antone (and named for the nearby landmark), the 80-proof, grain-based spirit goes down easy, thanks to a small-batch distillation process involving limestone-filtered water and a fancy copper pot.
Sip it neat or pair it with something traditional like cranberry juice or Kahlúa and cream. For the more adventurous, the maker suggests mixing it with tequila, rum, whiskey, blue Curacao, and Coke to make Enchanted Tea.
No matter how much you drink, you can feel pretty good the next day knowing the company employs a range of green initiatives, from water recycling to donating leftover grain to area farmers for livestock feed.
It might not smooth things over with your honey, but it’ll knock him on his ass.
