Except for the occasional fruity cocktail, we generally think that vodka should be left unflavored. That was until our friend Marla at Travel Curious Often suggested Zubrowka, a Polish vodka infused with Bison Grass. Yes, sounds a bit odd, but it’s truly a spectacular drinking experience. The subtle chamomile and herb flavors jump right at you when drinking it straight up, or on ice. Another popular way of drinking Zubrowka is with apple juice, which gave us the inspiration for our martini this week.Here’s the recipe…
Makes 2 cocktails
- 6 oz of Zubrowka Bison Grass vodka
- 6 oz of apple juice (filtered)
- 2 oz of fresh lime juice
- Maraschino cherries and apple and lime wedges for garnish
Pour the Zubrowka and apple juice into a shaker filled with ice, shake well and serve in martini glasses. Garnish with the fruit. Calling this drink an Appletini is tempting, but wouldn’t be fair. It’s rich, smooth, fragrant, and delicious…kind of like the perfect kiss.
