Today, August 24, is National Waffle Day. Sounds like fun, right? Who doesn't like a waffle? Not us. Not you. Certainly not the dog. But National Waffle Day was utterly ruined this year after Georgi vodka brand introduced waffle-flavored vodka onto an unsuspecting world. Ground zero can be pinpointed to a party at a Holiday Inn in Stony Brook, NY.
"Holiday Inn Express of Stony Brook is celebrating National Waffle Day by serving alcohol flavored waffles complimentary to all guests and patrons," reports Sacramento Bee. "Star Industries of Long Island, owners of Georgi, will be introducing the first ever waffle-flavored vodka."
What does it taste like, exactly? According to Martin Silver, President of Star Industries, the company that owns Georgi vodka, "it tastes just like waffles." So, yeah.
Waffle-flavored vodka follows on the heels of such liquid monstrosities as Smirnoff Fluffed Marshmallow and Smirnoff Whipped Cream. What used to be a chic, crisp libation treat is now an amiable appeltini. The degradation of vodka must end, and it starts with you. Anyway, try to have a happy National Waffle Day as best you can.
