Crater Lake Pepper Vodka

From brunch to dusk, Crater Lake Pepper Vodka is up for anything. Infused with five varieties of sweet and spicy peppers—red and yellow bell peppers, anaheim, serrano, and habanero—this vodka brings bold heat and flavor. Consider it your Bloody Mary’s new best friend. It also pairs well with pineapple and mango cocktails and oyster shooters, vodka cream sauces, and marinades.
