From classic recipes and modern twists to sophisticated, alcohol-free mixed drinks, there has never been a better time to experiment. Cocktail curiosity presents a massive opportunity for operators to create new, premium drinking experiences.

The word 'vodka' comes from the Russian for water and both Russia and Poland claim to have invented this hugely versatile spirit. Vodka's truly global reach is a result of the Second World War, according to historians, when the drink made its way to the US, catapulting its popularity to new levels.

The rye based spirit brings a warm, spicy mouthfeel to any cocktail and this dynamic mix of tequila, vodka, sharp cranberry and lime is a game changer at any party. This twist on a Mexican cocktail is so simple to make.
