Ring in 2013 with ABSOLUT TUNE

Unfortunately Christmas is over and the rush of opening presents, feasting on turkey and desserts, and enjoying eggnog and festive cocktails has come and gone. Luckily, there is one more bright light up ahead to distract us from the post-holiday depression, and that is New Year’s Eve! There are many different ways that people celebrate the New Year: standing in crowded Time’s Square to watch the ball drop, sitting at home by a fire, going out to dinner, or going out on the town! For me, New Year’s Eve is one last time to mingle and be merry with friends that have come home for the holidays before everyone disperses once again, which always makes it a special night. I also LOVE getting the party favors that are handed out on NYE, including tiaras, noise makers, tacky sunglasses, you name it I’ll be wearing it!



No matter how you choose to ring in the New Year, you will most likely have champagne included in the equation. Here is a bubbly alternative to toast with this year:

ABSOLUT Tune (14% abv./ 28 proof): ABSOLUT’s newest innovation is ABSOLUT Tune, a sparkling fusion of ABSOLUT Vodka and Sauvignon Blanc. The bottle comes with an outer sleeve that tears away as if being unzipped, revealing a black and gold glass bottle that will be a stylish (and tasty) accompaniment to your New Year’s Eve celebrations! Enjoy chilled or try a new spin on your classic mimosa:

Screwdriver Mimosa

  • 4 Parts Chilled ABSOLUT TUNE™
  • 1 Part Chilled Orange Juice
  • Splash of Hiram Walker Triple Sec (optional)
  • Garnish with an Orange Twist

If you want to impress your friends (and you know you all want to) show up at this year’s festivities with a bottle of ABSOLUT Tune.

Enjoy and Happy New Year!
