So just why did rapper Snoop Dogg record a special message for Stew Leonard's? Could it have to do with something Stews is doing?

We know Snoop Dogg and Martha Stewart are pretty tight, but now it looks like Stew Leonard Jr. has also fallen under the good graces of the Dogg..

It's really all about the Gin, specifically a new brand just introduced by Snoop Dogg. The rapper just did a video shout out to Stew Leonard's Wine and Liquor to thank the company for carrying his latest concoction.

Once the video hit, Stew Leonard Jr. and his daughter Blake immediately contacted Martha Stweart, a long time friend of Stew Jr. to ask for a cocktail recipe that would feature Snopp Doggs new Gin. Once they got it, they quickly posted it on social media for all to see.

So how did this highly unlikely relationship get to the point where Snoop Dogg was giving this special shout out to Stew Leonard's? According to, Blake Leonard, who just happens to be the spokesperson for Stew's Wines and Liquors, said things came together just perfectly.

The Indoggo brand manager and a representative for Stew Leonard's all happened to be in the studio at the same time as Snoop Dogg one day and "spontaneously" asked him to record the clip. Indoggo sales have gone up a bit since the Facebook post, the video has intrigued customers, and I think, especially in the past year, we've seen such a surge in customers making cocktails at home so everyone has been looking for new recipes to try.

Blake also offered a sort of disclaimer and wanted everyone to know that the relationship that the Leonard family has with Martha Stewart had nothing to do with their decision to carry Snoop Dogg's brand of Gin in their stores.
