The drink choice of the costume party set
The creative team at Stoli thought we’d appreciate this martini recipe. That’s because it puts a sensual twist it on the concept of a vodka cocktail. We decided we needed to share this sexy vodka cocktail recipe with our readers. It’s now our drink of choice for a masquerade ball or any event that involves costumes. (Aren’t costumes sexy?)
The trick to making a sexy vodka cocktail
Of course, the mixologists at Stolichnaya recommend using Stoli elit as the main ingredient. The vodka is made by a patented “freeze filtration” technique. This supposedly gives it, not only unparalleled purity but also a particularly oily, almost creamy texture. We understand the intended effect, texture-wise. But we say, make this sexy vodka cocktail with whatever vodka gives you the most pleasure.
To us, what what sets the cocktail apart is the Scotch rinse. A splash of Scotch and a twist of the wrist is the technique that gives this drink its “smoke.” The remaining Scotch is then discarded, so as not to impart any of its heavier flavor notes, merely the impression of its smoky presence. And although it’s accepted that all alcohol is, to some extent, aphrodisiac, there are those who link the beloved brown spirit of Scotland with a special power to persuade in games of love. Perhaps it is because of the number of dashing heroes and debonair lovers associated with the British spirt. We’re not sure. But whatever the reason, many experts in the drinks field swear that Scotch is a closer.
This potent cocktail recipe from Stoli puts a sexy twist on a vodka cocktail with the addition of smoky Scotch and a hint of citrus.
- 3 parts elit by Stolichnaya or your favorite vodka (Stoli recommends this vodka for the cocktail because of its creamy texture)
- 1/2 part Islay Scotch
- 3 orange peels
Rinse a chilled martini glass with the Scotch and discard excess.
Ignite 3 orange peels over the inside of the glass to season it.
Stir elit with ice until very cold. Strain into seasoned glass.
Garnish with a flamed orange peel.
