We’re calling it. Autumn is for Australian vodka!
Our Kosciuszko Vodka was born in the Snowy Mountains – just 22km from Australia’s highest peak, Mount Kosciuszko. And because it is blended with pristine snow melt, the mountains’ beautiful, yet volatile, nature lives in its DNA.
So why is our vodka the perfect spirit for autumn?
It combines a clean, crisp flavour profile with a smoothness that only premium vodka is known for – perfect for the in-between time of the year when you’ve retired your swimmers to the back of the cupboard, but you’re just not ready to pull out those winter sweaters.
And if you’re anything like us, those wardrobe problems are mirrored in our choice of afternoon tipple – with fruity fixes packed with crushed up ice long gone, but hot toddies not yet on the horizon.
So for this weather-confused season we bring you four vodka-based cocktails that we think are ‘just-right’ for this in-betweeny time of year, so you can make best use of this versatile spirit!
60mL Tomato juice ½
30mL Devil Tongue ¼
30mL Vodka ¼
15mL lemon juice
3 dashes Worcester sauce
2 dashes tabasco
Celery, lemon, olives, salt & pepper
Wow, that’s a lot of ingredients! But the Devil Mary couldn’t be simpler. Build this Sunday morning classic in a tall glass filled with ice, and garnish with a celery stick, lemon wedge, olives and a dusting of salt and pepper.
Sour Apple Martini
60ml Sour Apple Schnapps
30ml Kosciusko Vodka
Add all your schnapps and vodka to an ice-filled mixing glass and stir until very cold. Strain into a chilled Martini glass and garnish with a twist of organic lemon.
Macadamia syrup 20ml
To prepare the syrup, add the following ingredients to a mixing jug and allow to infuse as the mixture cools. Leave the mixture for 15 minutes before straining out the macadamia solids.
Brown sugar 1/3 cup
White sugar 1/3 cup
Finely chopped macadamia 1/3 cup
Hot water 1/3
Build drink over ice in a tall glass and garnish with an orange peel.
