Vodka makes for a fantastic base in cocktail recipes. Instead of building around the spirit like your would for other spirits, like gin, you can mix whatever you like and just dress it up with Russia’s favourite alcohol.

Case in point, The Blackberry Temptation. I love, love blackberries. They’re tangy, sweet and the colour is just gorgeous. Pair this lovely fruit with the simplicity of vodka and you’ll have yourself a beautiful cocktail for any occasion.
