First Jay-Z, Now Gaga

First Jay-Z, Now Gaga
Mother Monster gets even more spirit--literally.

gaga-drinkingDuring Lady Gaga’s appearance at Google’s New York office last week, the superstar mentioned that one of her greatest joys is drinking with friends while playing piano and singing. Little did we know that this was a masterstroke of Gaga marketing buzz, right in line with Jay-Z’s launch of Armand de Brignac Champagne in his 2006 comeback music video.

Coming soon is Gaga’s very own new Mother Monster Hangover sparkling vodka. A source who spent several days staked out behind the warehouse of a Queens, N.Y., liquor wholesaler tells The Daily Sip he witnessed several deliveries of the new product. All attempts at photography were blocked by security personnel.

Rumors are circulating in the spirits trade that Mother Monster was produced by Ukrainian distiller Nemiroff. The vodka gets its fizz from the use of a bioengineered yeast strain that can survive an environment up to 180 proof, as well as temperatures on the surface of Venus.

At just $50, we think Mother Monster will be a sure hit. It’s a fraction the price of Jay-Z’s Champagne and, according to the tag line, is “So powerful, you’ll be paws up.” Look for it in your local liquor store as soon as tomorrow. Go ahead, be brave.
