One could go on about Vodka for ever, but will spare you with the highlights and share my favorite Vodka drink. It is served chilled, served up, with a dash a Peppadew® juice, and a Red Peppadew® Pepper. Cheers to the PeppaTini!

National Cheese Fondue Day
Facts on Fondue
The history of fondue is centuries old! Fondue began as a way to use aged cheeses and bread to feed people that had limited access to fresh food during the winter months.
Fondue became the national dish of Switzerland when the Swiss Cheese Union modernized it and campaigned as a way to sell more cheese in the 1930s.
Fondue became a fad in American in the ’60s and ’70s after it was brought back by a jet setter that had it on a ski holiday.
It is a tradition that if a man drops his piece of bread in the fondue pot, he must buy a round of drinks.
If a woman loses her bread in the pot, she must kiss all her neighbors.
