The recent release of our first-ever Peach Flavored Vodka has stirred up a lot of interest and we’ve been getting requests for cocktail recipe ideas. So we asked our resident mixologist and Brand Ambassador, Dimitrios Zahariadis to create something new and suitable for the Fall season. Boy, did he deliver! Even if you’re not a so-called Flavored Vodka fan, you will want to give these a chance. They are not over-the-top sweet forward, but complex with interesting spicy and bitter notes. They are simply delicious and a good choice to make for upcoming seasonal cocktail parties. If you are creating these for a dinner party, then you may want to cook and bake food that will match this flavoring, or go in a different direction and make something that can complement the flavors but still stand alone. For example, you may want to make an Oreo dessert or something of a similar sweet nature, as it is a powerful flavor without completely overshadowing the peach in the cocktails. It is something to think about as you plan your dinner/cocktail party this season, hopefully, your dinner guests will want to come back for more.
