Posted on Sep 15, 2014
How do you create the perfect cocktail? With a finely crafted vodka, of course. And there’s none
better for the job than Absolut.
Not only is it made by a team of local farmers and distillers in the small village of Åhus, Sweden, but each drop of Absolut is also crafted with a consistent commitment to exceptional quality. This, of course, starts with ingredients like naturally-filtered aquifer water and locally-grown winter wheat.
And just like the farmers who take special care in crafting Absolut, it’s important to do the same
when creating cocktails. Read on to get the recipes for eight libations that were created with this unique vodka in mind.
