Organic liquors are popping up left and right, making eco-friendly happy hour easier than ever. Square One Vodka is the first certified organic 100% American rye vodka, released in 2006, and now even has a special cucumber infused version on the market. Perfect for making mint-cucumber mojitos! Maker’s Mark bourbon uses locally sourced corn and wheat within a 30 mile radius of their facility in Kentucky and also uses a distillation process that relies on recycled byproducts to save on water waste. Ask your local retailer about stocking these or other organic spirits as they come to market so you can feel good about your spirits’ carbon footprint.
