Vodka Cooler

The Vodka Cooler is unusual in that it is one vodka drink that accentuates the flavor (little that it may be) of the vodka rather than trying to change it with syrups, liquors or juices. A quality vodka has a pleasant mouthfeel and richness, not just burn. It comes from multiple distillations and careful filtration.

MurLarkey Distillery gave me their Divine Clarity potato vodka to play with, and I am enjoying using it in non-traditional ways. This vodka recently won gold in the San Francisco Spirits Competition for craft vodka. They are still a small craft distillery and the quality of this spirit reflects this.
  • 2 oz. vodka (Divine Clarity used)
  • 1/2 tsp. sugar
  • sparkling water
  • lemon peel
Combine vodka and sugar in a Collins glass full of ice. Fill with sparkling water and stir. Garnish with the lemon twist.
