Last week on the 21st of October apple enthusiasts celebrated National Apple Day (who knew?!). I’m sorry to say I let this one pass me by, but I was interested to hear that to celebrate National Apple Day premium vodka brand, Grasovka, created the perfect autumnal cocktail, the Grapplesovka.
The seasonal cocktail is a blend of Grasovka, a Polish bison grass vodka, and cloudy apple juice. The bison grass infused vodka offers an aromatic, fruity base, making it the perfect partner for English apple juice (and is one of my personal favourites).
So I decided to try it out at home. It was certainly easy to make and it was a wonderful refreshing wintery drink. Here’s the recipe:
– 25 ml Grasovka
– Cloudy apple juice
– A wedge of fresh apple
Pour measured Grasovka into a high ball glass over cubed ice. Top up glass with ice cold cloudy apple juice, and finish with fresh slices of apple.
Grasovka Vodka, RRP £18.95, is available from www.drinksdirect.co.uk
