Stolichnaya doesn't rest on its laurels.
The Pernod Ricard USA company that introduced flavored vodkas to the U.S. market in 1986, thereby touching off a race with competitors to have the most such offerings, has just introduced "Blakberi" -- blackberry-infused grain vodka.
Stoli's portfolio already included such flavors as peach, strawberry, raspberry, orange, vanilla, citrus and cranberry as well as blue, red and gold label expressions.
As with any company's newest release, Stoli has come up with a variety of cocktail recipes using their newest creation. Here's one, as pictured above:
2 parts Stoli Blakberi
1 part Stoli Blueberi
1 part cranberry juice
1 part simple syrup
Splash of raspberry liqueur
Squeeze of lemon
Sage to taste
Muddle sage. Combine with ingredients, shake vigorously over ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with one blueberry, one blackberry and sage.
