Day 54, Cocktail 50

Round one of Polish Fest is over, with round two to come later tonight.  The pierogies and stuffed cabbage rolls from Busia’s were great and a nod also goes to the potato pancakes (although they were not quite as good as my own homemade pancakes).  Among tonights festivities will be the vodka tasting, which I will report on in my next post.

Several years ago, I was getting ready for Polish Fest and fooling around with my first bottle of Old Krupnik.  After a few tweaks, the Stanski was born – one of my earliest original cocktails.  It is still a Polish Fest favorite at the Twilight Lounge.


  • 1 oz Chopin vodka
  • 1 oz Old Krupnik
  • 2 dashes Peychaud’s bitters
  • ginger ale

Fill a shaker with ice cubes and add the vodka, Krupnik and Peychaud’s.  Shake to mix and then strain into a rocks glass with 4-5 ice cubes.  Top with the ginger ale.
