Cedric the Vodka Drinker

I don't know why seeing Cedric the Entertainer would make you want to drink vodka, but clearly the people who sell Ceren Vodka think it's a great idea, because Cedric was at the Ceren launch party at the Mile High Station last week.

When I asked Cedric for his favorite cocktail, he said he liked to keep it "gangsta style" with Ceren (no surprise there) on the rocks with three (not two or four) limes squeezed in it, then tossed. No rind in his glass -- that's not street enough for "the entertainer." -- Nancy Levine
