Celebrate Valentine’s Day By Creating The Perfect Cocktail

Celebrate Valentine’s Day By Creating The Perfect Cocktail

What better way to celebrate Valentine's Day than with a delicious cocktail...

Valentine's Day - a time of year to revel in your #relationshipgoals or rejoice in your independence. Either way here at InStyle we have found the perfect way to show your appreciation for the people you love by creating the perfect cocktail.

Our drink of choice on 14th February? Zubrowka Vodka. Steeped in 500 years of history and complete with a blake of Bison Grass in every bottle, Zubrowka Vodka is not just another flavoured vodka but an authentic Polish vodka with natural flavour. 

And we’ve teamed up with the brand to offer you five delicious recipes to try out. Our favourite? Apple Zu, which in case you missed it was served at our #InStyleBAFTA party. So grab the ingredients and try out these easy recipes…

Apple Zu

50ml Żubrówka
100ml Traditional Pressed Cloudy Apple
Squeeze of Lime
Lime wedge and sprinkle of ground cinnamon to garnish

Method: Fill highball with ice, add all ingredients and stir. Garnish with a lime wedge and a sprinkle of ground cinnamon then serve.

Zu Tonic

50ml Żubrówka

Ice and lime wedge to garnish

Method: The ration is the key to success here with the most flavour some drink coming from the 2:1 ratio of tonic to Żubrówka!
