It’s #InternationalVodkaDay celebrations and worth every bit of Vodka’s latest resurgence. I started the party early. I chose to celebrate for more than one day. There have been some incredible new craft vodka brands in the mix. I’m loving it! Are you ready for a resurgence of vodka or have you always been a fan? 😉
My all time favourite vodka cocktail was a Cosmo – for years. Sex And The City just validated my choice back then. This is a twisted twist on an old favourite. I love playing with classic cocktail recipe templates to create something new and refreshing. This was no difference. The fact that you can build the drink in the glass, means you do not need a shaker or any other fancy tools either. The pomegranate added sweet and tart, much like cranberry would in the original recipe. You could up the juice measure here and sweeten to taste with a simple sugar syrup. I found the vanilla liqueur to be sufficient.
This cocktail would make a great seasonal serve for entertaining. I am sure it would be a treat made in a big batch too for the occasion 😉
Thanks to @neropremiumvodka for the incredible box to celebrate. The personalised bottle and barware matches the For Cocktail Sake bar at home perfectly! Check out their profile!
Nero Premium Vodka is perfect to sip neat. (Reminder: add bottle to the freezer 😉)Made from British Potatoes giving it notes of sweet vanilla and fragrant citrus. It makes a superb Martini too and I am sure many other vodka cocktails would benefit from a touch of this silky spirit. Any suggestions?
