Each Thanksgiving we stuff ourselves with fantastic beer in preparation for the big rivalry game: The University of Texas vs. Texas A&M showdown. And each year we get so full of beer and fried, gooey, crunchy snacks we find it difficult to jump off the couch to yell at the TV.

This year, why not try a light, refreshing cocktail while watching the game?

Gary Kelleher, the man behind Dripping Springs Vodka, has introduced a new specialty spirit just for Texans and just in time for Thanksgiving: Dripping Springs Texas Orange Vodka.

To make this flavored vodka, Dripping Springs selected Segovia oranges from the Rio Grande Valley. “These are the best oranges around," Kelleher says. "They have deeper, orange-ier flavor. We wanted to capture the flavor of the Valley as if you had poured Dripping Springs Vodka straight over a fresh Rio Grande orange.”

This new flavored vodka starts off with the same micro-distillation process that all Dripping Springs Vodka goes through. Then they zest the oranges, hand-select the very best bits of zest and steep it like a cup of tea, letting it flavor the vodka in a 100 percent copper still. It then goes through 20 more micro-distillations to give it a clean, pure flavor. The result is 100% Texan and 100% fresh, with nothing artificial and no additives.

Not everything in Texas is big. This specialty vodka is made in 50 gallon batches, which are the smallest commercial batches in the world. Dripping Springs has 10 little stills running all day and all night. For this limited edition first run, they produced only 1,000 cases—that’s not a heck of a lot to keep thirsty Texas football fans happy—so they better start making more in a hurry.

The challenge is that Rio Grande oranges aren’t available year round. Dripping Springs bought all the oranges they could, crafting the first batch before oranges went out of season. They're just now coming back, so don't panic yet, we may not run into any unseemly shortages.
