Om Shanti (and Ice)

The sages have taught us that there’s peace and serenity to be found in all areas of life. Especially at happy hour. Hence Om Cocktails – because what makes happy hour really happy is when you don’t have to faff around with all that messy prep that goes into your regular 5 o’clock tipple.

Om comes to us from LA mixology maven Natalie Bovis who had the good sense to create a range of certified organic vodka cocktails in a bunch of natural flavor combinations.

Check out the wild cranberry, blood orange, agave nectar magic. Check out the orb-topped bottle – the label was printed at a wind-powered facility, and for every bottle sold, a tree is planted. Make ours a double.

So here’s how 5 o’clock looks now – glass, ice, pour. Simple. Or whir it around with ice in the MagicBullet for a (150 calorie) frozen delight. The path to enlightenment has never been so swift.

Om Wild Cranberry Blood Orange Vodka, $26.99, available at Whole Foods, Wally’s Wine and Gelsons
