Think all vodka is made from potatoes? Well, that’s a half baked idea. Get up to speed and sip some ultra-premium Ultimat Vodka which is made from a unique blend of wheat, (for smoothness) potato (for richness) and rye (for complexity). I’ve always paired my vodka with fruit juice, but at an Ultimat Vodka seminar led by Certified Spirits Specialist, Jennifer Simonetti-Bryan, I learned how to properly sniff and sip, and to appreciate the difference between various blends and truly enjoyed sipping this vodka ‘neat’. Give it a try.

Truth be told, as delicious as this vodka is straight up; a yummy cocktail in a sexy glass with fruit accessorizing said glass, will always be the star of the party – even if it’s just a party of two. Shake it up!

The Ultimat Apple Blossom Cocktail

1 ½ oz Ultimat Vodka
½ oz Patron Citronage Orange Liqueur
3 oz apple juice
2 oz fresh lime juice
Dash of cranberry juice
Apple slice (optional)

Combine Ultimat Vodka, Patron Citronge, apple juice, lime juice and cranberry juice in a shaker with ice. Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Accessorize with an apple slice.
Ultimat Vodka’s gorgeous lead-free blue crystal bottle is a perfect hostess gift and is sold in most fine wines and spirits shops. Visit for more info.

It’s always wise to have a little nosh to go with your drink. Instead of the usual greasy, unhealthy chips, try Bare Fruit Apple Chips. All natural, American grown without GMO’s; these delicious and crispy apple chips come in flavors such as Cinnamon, Fuji Red and Granny Smith.
