Clementine Cocktail Recipe

Svedka Cocktail2 svedkacocktail4Svedka Cocktail7

For the “American Hustle” themed party I put together for the New York Post, I was asked to come up with a signature cocktail.  When thinking of possible options, the very first idea that came to mind was to create a vodka cocktail using SVEDKA Clementine because, well, it’s delicious and the packaging is awesome (a super 70’s orange color).  My boyfriend and I turned into mixologists for a night, testing out a variety of different ingredients and ingredient ratios with the vodka….I felt like a boozy Bill Nye (it was awesome).  Everything we tested was pretty good, but in the end, we were very proud of our winning recipe.

The winning cocktail is absolutely delicious and so very refreshing, perfect for the warmer months up ahead.  And in case you missed the recipe in the Post, I’ve included it below for you all to enjoy as well.

You Will Need:

  • 1 part SVEDKA Clementine Orange
  • 1 part grapefruit juice
  • 1 part club soda
  • 1/2 part fresh lemon juice
  • Ice
  • 8-10 mint leaves

Directions: Lightly muddle mint leaves in a cocktail shaker.  Add SVEDKA Clementine Orange, grapefruit juice, club soda, and lemon. Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Add a mint garnish and serve.
