Vodka Cocktail--Smoke on the WaterA vodka cocktail with a sexy spin

The creative team behind Stoli thought we’d appreciate this recipe because of the sensual twist it puts on the concept of a vodka cocktail. We decided we needed to share it with you as our drink of choice for a masquerade ball. Of course, they recommend using Stoli Elit as the main ingredient. We understand what they’re getting at, texture-wise, but we say, use whatever gives you the most pleasure!
