Do you like your spirits artisanal? Organic? Slowly made by hand by family farmers that actually care? Made in the USA?? Prairie may be the world’s most meticulously crafted spirit that just so happens to let you check single thing off of that list. From those who care what goes in, to those who care what goes down.
Prairie’s single vintage organic corn is distilled to taste, not a prescribed number of times. That’s because climate, soil, and moisture levels give each small batch its own unique character. Preserving that character takes personal attention, giving our spirits an award-winning taste that can stand on its own.
Three family farmers on the Minnesota prairie own the land and the quiet respect of all around them. Each family works in their field up to three times longer than conventional farmers, all to cultivate the nutrient-rich soil and organic corn that will become Prairie spirits.
Here are two of my favorite Prairie Organic Spirits Cocktails
Prairie Game Day
- 1 ½ oz Prairie Cucumber-Flavored Organic Vodka
- 2 oz tonic water
- ½ oz cucumber juice
- ½ oz fresh lime juice
- 1 oz simple syrup
- Fresh mint leaves
- Cucumber slices
Combine ingredients in a shaker and shake to mix. Pour over a glass filled with ice; top with fresh mint leaves and cucumber slices (optional).
Bonfire Tallgrass Tea
- 1 ½ oz Prairie Organic Vodka
- 4 oz green tea
- 1 Tbsp organic sugar
- 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
Shake over ice and strain into a sugar-rimmed glass.

The spirits are really good. Crisp, clean, bright, pure. They are pretty much exactly what I am looking for…and the cucumber vodka is so spot on. I can see why the vodka was rated Best New Vodka by Food & Wine magazine in 2009 and given a 92 by Wine Enthusiast magazine! The gin, my personal fav, got in on the accolade act too. How does a Gold Medal in the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and a Gold Medal in the 2013 SIP Awards get you? It gets me, that’s for sure. This is some good drinking right here.
