Big Apple Flava
Posted on August 28 2010[caption id="" align="alignnone" width="621" caption="Absolut Brooklyn"][/caption] OoOh if only I thought of it first. After a short 3 month travel aboard, I come home to my Brooklyn F train stop dominated by one particular advertisement, very locally inspired. "Welcome back Jessica, you are in Brooklyn, home of the brown stones?" Absolutely! Absolut Vodka’s fourth installment in the city series (after New Orleans, LA, Vancouver, & Boston) has plastered Brooklyn with flava. Working with Spike Lee to adopt a hyper-local outlook for the Limited Edition Absolut Brooklyn 1L bottle. This hand drawn Brooklyn stoop along with first time altered Lars Olsson Smith seal, the brand's founder wearing a baseball cap and glasses to reflects Lee's collorabation, sells for a $24.99 blend of ginger and red apple (after the Big Apple). Not only that, if you are not convinced to purchase this adorable BK souvenir, Absolut Vodka is donating $50,000 of the profits to Habitat for Humanity - New York City as commitment to supporting the Brooklyn community. (Thanks Spike!) I want one! I also think it will go nicely with some ice and ginger ale. Taste tasters I hear are giving it the thumbs up!
