Hooray for Polish vodka!

Day 48, Cocktail 44

Polishfest is next weekend and is always the highlight of June for us.  We all love the pierogies and sausages, the polka music is fun and the vodka, well, what is there to complain about there?  So, in preparation, we’ll have a week of Polish cocktails and Polish vodka!  This first offering was something I found on line and decided to give it a try.

  Pompanski

  • 1 oz Polish potato vodka
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  • 1/8 oz triple sec
  • 1 oz grapefruit juice

Combine all the ingredients in a shaker over 4-5 ice cubes.  Shake vigorously to chill and break up the ice.  Pour, unstrained, into a large rocks glass.  Garnish with a lime slice.

I have to admit, this one didn’t tickle my fancy.  The vermouth is simply too much and overpowers both the vodka and even the grapefruit juice.  If you’ve got a good recipe using Polish vodka, let me know!

Cheers!
