Get Bakery Wasted With a Glazed Donut-flavored Vodka

Friday June 1st is National Donut Day, and to commemorate, eco-friendly spirit brand Vodka 360 has revealed their latest flavor: 360 Glazed Donut.

While the drink may sound decadent, the company notes that while an average glazed donut can run you around 250 calories, each 1.0 ounce shot of the 360 Glazed Donut vodka will only set you back 80 calories. But let’s be serious, if this is a liquid vodka version of a glazed donut, we’ll need the calorie count on the entire bottle. Actually, according to some Webtender figures, finishing the entire bottle will credit you with 2,040 calories…and bruised knees from hugging the toilet the next morning (rage responsibly).

360 Vodka has tapped into one of the hottest current trends in mixology — confectionery flavors. The new 360 Glazed Donut 750ml has already begun shipping to retailers across the country, so if you’re down for the sweeter and potentially sloppier things in life, you might want to give it a whirl — in the name of National Donut Day, or something like that.

Glazed Donut-flavored vodka that’s 70 proof (35% alcohol)? Count us in for a try.

Dunkin’ Donuts Offering Free Donuts On June 3, 2011

June 3rd is National Donut Day, a chance for donut shops nationwide to get into some sort of charitable or creative spirit. At least that rings true for Dunkin’ Donuts, who will be offering guests a free donut of their choice (while supplies last) with the purchase of a beverage (excluding bottled cooler beverages).

According to a press release straight from Dunkin‘, the holiday is held the first Friday of June each year. It was originally established in 1938 by the Chicago Salvation Army to honor the women who served donuts to soldiers during World War I.
