What better way to celebrate summer officially here than with a cocktail! Even better if it has vodka on it! Love me some vodka.
For that reason, I teamed up with Absolut Elyx to bring you the best summer cocktail, something refreshing to beat the heat and posh enough to be the talk of your party.
SIDENOTE: Absolut Elyx is produced from single estate wheat in Sweden and distilled in a hand-operated vintage still from 1921 made entirely from copper. Which naturally catalyzes trace compounds in the spirit, purifying the vodka and adding a highly prized silky texture and taste. – No wonder why I like it so much, extremely smooth taste!
DRIVING MISS DAISY
- 4 parts Absolut Elyx
- 2 parts sweet Vermouth
- 6 parts hibiscus flower tea
- 3 parts sugar syrup
- 2 parts freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 thumbnail slices ginger
You don’t have to be a superstar mixologist to prepare this tropical extravaganza. Just pour all of the ingredients into a shaker, shake and strain into copper pineapple (or any other flowery vessel) over cubed ice. Garnish with fresh fruit et voila! You just made yourself a fabulous Driving Miss Daisy.
By the way, did you know that pineapple is the global symbol of hospitality? Me neither. Yes! That’s why Absolut Elyx adopted the copper pineapple as their “thing” because, as a brand, they are all about entertainment.
