Everyone loves a well-crafted cocktail and what better time to incorporate a new twist on a classic for a libation that you will enjoy season after season!  

  A Cosmopolitan has been a go-to cocktail for me and my friends for quite a while! Infusing the cranberry juice with warm spices of nutmeg, cinnamon and cloves signal that the holidays are upon us. What better time to enjoy a hand-made, single ingredient luxury vodka for classic cocktail with a twist!

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 Potato Vodka has a luxurious mouthfeel with a clean finish with delicate notes of vanilla and crisp green apple; perfect for pairing up with the tart-sweet flavors of the cranberry juice the complex flavors from the spices.

You’ll need to plan ahead to mull the cranberry juice with the spices. Be sure to chill the mulled juice thoroughly.                                                  Cheers and Happy Holidays!
