City Pulse

By Candice Sabatini

Sure, it’s another vodka, but Double Cross Vodka is seven times distilled, seven times filtered, and will go down smooth. V-e-r-y smooth. Just ask Master Distiller, Dr. Jan Krak, who created it.

Honestly, it’s the unusual bottle that captivates your attention at first. A clear glass brick with romantic Slovakian poetry etched on the back, an individually numbered seal, and a large cap that they will personalize for you. Go ahead, get crazy. Get personal. They’ll etch anything you want on that cap…your name, his name, the dog’s name, your favorite sex position, a marriage proposal, an indecent proposal or even more Slovakian poetry, because one can never get enough of that.

Drink it straight up, on the rocks or get some fruit juice and make a tasty Limonata Rosa cocktail. A few of these and you might even agree to the suggestion etched on the cap.

Limonata Rosa

2 oz Double Cross Vodka
1 oz fresh lemon juice
1 oz Lemoncello
¼ oz cranberry juice

Pour all ingredients into a martini shaker.
Add ice.
Shake and then strain into a pretty martini glass. The prettier the better.
Garnish with an orange twist. Get creative, add some cherries or berries.
