Recipes: A Duo of Belvedere Vodka Cocktails

Share

These two cocktails from Belvedere Vodka are perfect for any party or get-together with friends. Both are easy to make and are very enjoyable.

We had trouble finding pear puree for this first Pear and Rosemary Cocktail. So many fruits and vegetables are seasonal, so don’t be afraid to adapt these recipes to what you have on hand or can currently purchase. We used peach puree and the orange simple syrup we made from scratch. The rosemary came from the garden but that one should be easy enough to find in the grocery store produce section.

The rosemary in this cocktail is a nice touch and makes this cocktail a great pairing for lamb or pork appetizers, which often have rosemary in their recipes. The lemon juice keeps the syrup and puree from tasting too sweet, creating a good balance.Pear and Rosemary Cocktail

Pear and Rosemary Cocktail
1.5 oz. Belvedere Vodka
3/4 oz. pear puree
1/4 oz. simple syrup
1/4 oz. fresh lemon juice
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary

Gently muddle rosemary in the base of a shaker. Add the remaining ingredients and ice; then shake. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary.

The best thing about a Belvedere Polish Mule is the elderflower syrup. Although it is only a dash, the florals atop the ginger beer delight the nose and the tongue in a light way. One suggestion for changing it up is to use Burlesque bitters in place of the Angostura bitters. Overall, this is a wonderfully Belvedere Polish Mulerefreshing drink.

Belvedere Polish Mule
1.5 oz. Belvedere Intense Vodka
1/2 fresh lime (squeeze juice into the shaker – save the rest to use for the garnish)
1 dash elderflower syrup
2 dashes Angostura bitters
1 bottle of ginger beer

Shake all ingredients except for the ginger beer. Fine strain over cubed ice into a highball glass. Top with the ginger beer and garnish with a wedge of lime.
