Need a vodka with a little more flavour than the quest for clarity that is traditional vodka, but a little less flavour than the neon stuff they market to very young adults? Goods news, there is a happy medium: herbal vodka. We’re fans of Wódka Żołądkowa Gorzka, an amber coloured, fruity and herbaceous number with a vaguely medicinal finish. Try it out in this cocktail:
1 1/3 oz Wódka Żołądkowa Gorzka
2/3 oz fresh lemon juice
1/3 oz simple syrup
2-3 ginger slices
1 can/bottle of soda water
Pour Wódka Żołądkowa Gorzka, fresh lemon juice and simple syrup into an ice-filled glass. Top off with soda water, garnish with 2-3 slices of fresh ginger root and serve.
