LA Invasion: THE AMERICANS Serves Up Cold Vodka and The Cold War

Revenge is a dish best served cold. Wait, scratch that. Vodka is a drink best served cold. That’s better!

Last night, local LA press and a few of the great minds behind The Americans gathered at a local Vodka bar to celebrate the DVD/Blu-ray release of one of the best shows of 2013. I was lucky enough to be among them and let me tell you, more events should take place inside a “vodbox.”

The “vodbox” is a basically a freezing cold vodka tasting room, filled with over 80 different kinds of strong, delicious vodka. We were able to taste 3 different vodkas and frankly, they were all amazing. There was a quinoa grain vodka called Fair, a Salted Caramel vodka, and the last one we got to choose the flavor. I tried a chocolate vodka that really tasted like chocolate!

They also had goodies like the Americans inspired “Cold War Cosmo,” custom laser-etched phone cases, Russian Ushanka hats, as well as an opportunity to chat with Executive Producers of The Americans – Graham Yost, Darrel Frank, and Justin Falvey.

Check out pictures from the event below and don’t forget to pick up The Americans Season 1 available on February 11.
