Today we recommend two Absolut vodka cocktails that you can truly enjoy this summer days.


Absolut was established in 1879 by Lars Olsson Smith and is produced in Åhus, Sweden. Smith introduced fractional distillation, which produces liquor without fusel alcohol, in Sweden in 1877, under the name “Tenfold Purified Vodka”. The name was changed to “Absolut Rent Brännvin” (Absolutely Pure Vodka) by Smith to market his much improved product.

Smith challenged the city of Stockholm’s liquor marketing monopoly with his vodka. It was sold at a lower price than the monopoly’s product, just outside the city border. Smith even offered free boat rides to the distillery and “Pure Vodka” made Smith a fortune.


Moscow Mule – Vodka, Fresh Lime Juice, Ginger Beer, Copper Mug

The mule was born in Manhattan but “stalled” on the West Coast for the duration. The birthplace of “Little Moscow” was in New York’s Chatham Hotel. That was back in 1941


when the first carload of Jack Morgan’s Cock ‘n’ Bull ginger beer was railing over the

 in the United States during the 1950’s. The name refers to the popular perception of vodka as a Russian product.plains to give New Yorkers a happy surprise. It became popular during the vodka craze

50/50 Martini – Vodka, Dry Vermouth, Orange Bitters, Lemon Zest


The martini is an international symbol of classic cool. Go-to drink choice for Bond. Bogart. Roosevelt. In an era where drinks can sometimes be overcomplicated and under-considered, pressed and pitted, colored and candied, there’s still only one delineation that truly matters: shaken or stirred?

But how did a drink rooted in simplicity earn its reputation as the ultimate status symbol in the loose-lipped world of libations? The same way anything becomes more than the mere sum of its parts: it stands for something greater.


Taste. Refinement. Class. The list goes on and on.

It’s been described by those who merit quoting as ‘the only American invention as perfect as the sonnet, and ‘the elixir of

quietude,’ but in reality, it’s simpler than that. It’s simply the perfect cocktail.
