Chopin Rye Vodka pairs well with the holidays!

This is NOT grandma’s recipe!

As a kid, I would always look forward to pairing up the sweet and tangy cranberry sauce my mom made from scratch. I just loved the way the intensely sweet and tart cranberry flavors of the homemade sauce paired so well with the salty and savory turkey and dressing. I still love that flavor combination, and I have found another way to enjoy it!  Adding in another layer of flavor intensity with the Oregon Cranberry Liqueur  from Clear Creek Distillery from the Oregon coast. This cocktail is reminiscent of that wonderful burst of cranberries in every bite!

Pair the Cranberry Sauce Cocktail with the savory appetizers at your holiday parties! 

I find that Chopin Rye Vodka from Poland is the perfect pairing with the cocktail ingredients! Whether it is served or ice or in a martini glass, it’s a fun way to serve up a tasty cocktail for you and your guests at holiday gathers!

Chopin Potato Vodka is a hand-made, luxury, single ingredient artisan vodka made in a distillery in Poland in the eastern town of Krzesk. The fertile farmland  is on 17 acres of a restored 1766 country house where they grow the high starch potatoes to make this quality vodka which is a favorite  of connoisseurs everywhere!

Chopin’s Rye Vodka has a hint of spiciness and rich mouthfeel that really makes this a special cocktail to pair with the holidays!

    Oh my god! same idea even I have tried the same with my favorite Anestasia Vodka. But instead of ? oz Cranberry Liquor I have used Pomegranate Liquor you have mentioned that also. Coming to the taste it was more than awesome.
