How to Create Delicious Cocktails Using Finlandia Cranberry Vodka
Vodka is a popular spirit these days and many bar managers just assume that if they have a few bottles of it displayed on the bar and a couple of vodka cocktails on their menu, they will be bought by customers. They are correct in thinking this. But most bar managers are trying to sell more than just a couple of cocktails a night. All managers of restaurants are looking to sell their restaurant or bar as a destination, and are creating unique cocktails using well-known and unique vodkas as a way to get people into their establishments.
A unique flavored vodka that has a brand attached to it, and is well known, is the Finlandia cranberry Vodka. Finlandia was the first vodka producer to use fruit flavors in vodka. The first flavors that they created, in 1994, were lime, mango, and cranberry. The producers were inspired to create these flavored vodkas by the process that people use to infuse fruit with vodka.
Finlandia uses fresh, natural fruit to create their flavored vodkas. Since introducing their first few flavors, they have come out with many more. If you are looking for an easy way to add an extra twist of flavor to a drink, or to make a complex recipe easier, you can do so by using these fruit flavored vodkas.
Finlandia cranberry vodka can be used in a variety of different drinks that normally contain cranberry juice. For instance, the Cosmopolitan contains cranberry juice, but instead you can substitute the Finlandia cranberry vodka, and achieve the very same flavors. You will use the cranberry vodka, cointreau or triple sec, and a splash of lime juice to create this popular cocktail.
A great winter cocktail that includes Finlandia cranberry vodka is the Ma Cherie, a delicious chocolate cocktail that has hints of cranberry and cherry flavoring. Perfect for a cold winter weekend, you create this drink using 3 ounces of Finlandia cranberry vodka, one ounce of cherry liqueur, one and a half ounces of cherry puree, one ounce of dark chocolate liqueur, one ounce of lemon juice, half an ounce of gomme syrup, and half an ounce of citrus soda. Pour the cranberry vodka, cherry liqueur, cherry puree, chocolate liqueur, lemon juice and gomme syrup into a glass filled with ice cubes and stir well. Pour into 2 glasses filled halfway with ice and garnish with twists of orange for a delicious, sweet drink!
