An Absurdly Creamy Vodka Sauce

A creamy vodka sauce pasta dish in a white bowl.

With two excellent vodkas in our catalog of spirits, it was really only a matter of time before we had a go at the much-loved, absurdly creamy Vodka Sawce recipe from Dan Pelosi, aka Grossy Pelosi. This was the recipe that pushed Dan to Insta-fame, and for good reason. The pale orange sauce clings to the pasta in a way that evokes dropping into a cushy bed at the end of a long day. Described as “inappropriately thick” and “illegally glossy”, this dish delivers on comfort, flavor, and wins bonus points for being simple to make from mostly pantry ingredients. 

While you could use any vodka and have excellent results with Dan’s recipe, why not spring for our grain-to-glass New Deal Vodka? As the sauce thickens on the stove, you can whip up a martini to sip while you indulge in this truly luxurious pasta.
