Chocolate Covered Cherry Float and Epic Crush are Two Drinks to Get You in the Mood -- Whatever Your Attitude may be!

NEW ORLEANS, Jan. 15, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Now that the holidays are over, it's time to focus on the next gift-giving holiday, Valentine's Day. Whether you are the romantic type, or in the class that hates all things pink and red around this time of the year, EPIC Vodka has something for you!

Introduced in 2013, EPIC Vodka is named for the great moments found in our lives.  "EPIC believes you define the time and the moment, but if you are a romantic at heart and like to play along, try our Chocolate Covered Cherry Float for two and snuggle up to share the fun!" said Tracey Clapp, marketing director, vodka.

Or if you're looking for some DIY Valentine's gift ideas, pair a martini shaker, a bottle of EPIC vodka, two glasses and your favorite cocktail recipe. Add a can of whipped cream for an extra treat!  For those really crafty, create a "manly" bouquet with EPIC 50 mls glued to floral pics and arranged inside a martini shaker.  Add red and white crinkle paper in the base to complete the festive look. 

If you're low in the creative department but high in the romance area, make your favorite EPIC Vodka martini and drop in candy conversation hearts right before serving for some floating sweet nothings. 

If Valentine's Day isn't your thing, there's ways to honor Valentine's Day for even the most disavowed celebrator.  Try an EPIC Crush cocktail, and crush all romantic notions from your head as you enjoy this fun and fizzy drink (don't forget the bitters!)

For those truly jaded, invite your single friends over (no dates allowed!) and host an anti-valentine's day party, serving up EPIC Crushes.  Make sure to have a small mallet on the side in case anyone wants to take out their frustrations on the ice!  Skewers full of black jellybeans also make an eye catching addition to your cocktail table. 

"EPIC Vodka offers you a clean, crisp taste at an attractive price point," added Clapp.  "And no matter how you celebrate Valentine's Day, if you are poetic or pragmatic, it's a day to define who you are and own it."

Made with vodka imported from France, EPIC is inspired by centuries-old distilling traditions and is made with hand-selected wheat harvested from the Champagne region in France. The brand is available in 1.75 ml, Liter, 750 ml and 50 ml. Suggested retail pricing for EPIC 750 ml is $12.99.

One of the biggest challenges with adopting a DevOps mentality is: new applications are easily adapted to cloud-native, microservice-based, or containerized architectures - they can be built for them - but old applications need complex refactoring. On the other hand, these new technologies can require relearning or adapting new, oftentimes more complex, methodologies and tools to be ready for production. In his general session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, Solutions Marketi...
