Absolut Brooklyn Cocktail Recipe

Berry Tempting: Cherry Esplanade

The brand Absolut is known for its interesting advertising campaigns and wide variety of vodka flavors. The latest addition to the Absolut roster? Absolut Brooklyn, a blend of red apple and ginger with a special bottle designed by Spike Lee. I recently got my hands on Brooklyn and asked the mixologists at Absolut to create a cocktail that involves fresh cherries. The resulting recipe is a delightful blend of fruity and floral flavors. Alone the vodka has a decidedly candy-apple-ish taste, but in this cocktail, it's mellowed with fresh cherry juice and elderflower liqueur. A generous splash of soda water gives the libation a refreshing quality. It's the sort of drink that would be wonderful while sitting on a front stoop in Brooklyn on a hot day. To check out the exclusive recipe, keep reading.
