Hard Luck Word Choice

As part of a vodka promotion, these coozies were given out at one of our local watering holes last week.



Something about the rhyming slogan is all over the floor for me.

If a vodka is so wonderfully flavored, I would think that people would want to "swill it" not "spill it".

swill:
v.tr. 1. To drink greedily or grossly.
v.intr. To drink or eat greedily or to excess.

Okay, maybe it is bartender lingo for pouring (i.e., "spill some of that vodka into my glass, please."), but I like the sound of "swill" better anyhow; its manner isn't stopped up.

Maybe "spill it" could refer to "spilling the beans"?
In vodka veritas!
