“It smells of freshly mown hay and spring flowers, of thyme and lavender, and it’s soft on the palate and so comfortable, it’s like listening to music by moonlight.”
– “Isabel” in Somerset Maugham’s novel The Razor’s Edge.
We could not say it better than it was stated by Isabel in The Razors Edge. This old world spirit has now surfaced in the new world. The Polish spirit Zubrowka is similar to vodka but has been infused with Bison grass. This infusion gives Zubrowka an herbal grassiness as well as a subtle vanilla flavor. Look for the brand name Bak’s with a blade of Bison Grass in the bottle. The spirit has been traditionally served chilled on its own and is often mixed with apple juice in cocktails. Today we offer you the Zubrowka Martini. We like this drink for it subtle apple-pie character and unique palate! Na Zdrowie!
In a Shaker Glass Filled with Ice Add:
- 1 ½ Ounces Zubrowka
- ½ Ounce Lillet Blonde
- ½ Ounce Apple Juice
Shake Till Painfully Cold. Strain into a Martini Saucer. Garnish with an Apple Wedge.
