Old Bay Vodka Is Real, and We Need to Know If It’s as Good as the Seasoning

Old Bay goes perfectly with everything!

Did you know Old Bay seasoning originated in Baltimore? (Just like these other recipes from Maryland.) Old Bay is a popular spice blend consisting of black pepper, paprika, celery salt, red pepper flakes and a whole lot more. If you’ve never had it, I can’t recommend it enough—it’s got just the right amount of kick that complements a variety of recipes (including lots and lots of seafood).

But what about Old Bay vodka? Yes, it’s a thing, and yes, you need to try it!
