Day 235, Cocktail 233

On Thursday night I stopped by the Klavier to talk cocktails with Kris Peters.   I filled her on some more options for her ginger flavored brandy and then we started to talk about some of the other liqueurs and liquors that she has.  It didn’t take very long for Kris to pull a bottle of Van Gogh Acai Blueberry flavored vodka down.  I have to admit, it smelled just like blueberries.  Most of this stems from the fact that Van Gogh flavored vodkas are infused with the flavors they are adding rather than just using added flavorings.  The infusion process yeilds a much truer and deeper flavor.  Regular readers know that I’m not a big fan of flavored vodkas, but I have to admit that this was pretty good.

The drink that Kris made was a Blueberry Press.  It consisted of the aforementioned Van Gogh Acai Blueberry vodka, a dash of Limoncello (a delightful Italian lemon flavored liqueur), seltzer water and lemon lime soda.  Kris garnished the drink with a lemon wedge.  It was terrific!  Light, refreshing and tasting like blueberry pancakes, I could easily drink several of these in a night!

If you are in the vicinity of Germantown and haven’t stopped by the Klavier yet, you really should.  Ask Kris to make one of their speciality cocktails or presses and tell her that Stan sent you!

Cheers!
