NEW YORK, Dec. 2 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate the season responsibly, Ketel One vodka has created a luxury, late-night experience that will provide gentlemen and their friends with everything they need to end their night right this December. The Ketel One Canteen will travel across the country offering complimentary gourmet food, bottled water and chauffeured rides home in New York City, Chicago and Los Angeles. Each city will feature recipes created by celebrity chefs Michael Psilakis, Rick Bayless and Ilan Hall respectively.
The chefs' unique take on late-night food is reflective of their personal cooking styles. Michael Psilakis pays homage to his Greek-American roots while Rick Bayless will offer contemporary expressions of Mexico's most beloved dishes. Ilan Hall fuses together a wide array of ethnicities and tastes as he does at his new Los Angeles restaurant.
In addition to late night bites, Ketel One vodka will offer complimentary rides home on a first-come-first-served basis in high-end vehicles. This combination of gourmet food and safe rides ensure that everyone ends their night out in a responsible manner.
