Gettin' Wild in Finland
I want to share Finlandia's new Wild Berry Vodka with the Liquid Muse Community. Frankly, the stuff is delish. Since I received a sample bottle, I've "tested" it out a few more times than I should probably admit!
It is quite tasty all-on-its-own, over ice. Still, when mixed in a cocktail, such as the one below, it really shines as a must-have ingredient for your mid-Summer party.
"Kippis!" ("Cheers" in Finnish)
Wild Berries Caipiroska

2 oz. Finlandia ®Wild Berries Fusion Vodka
2 oz. sweet and sour mix
4 fresh raspberries
4 fresh blackberries
2 fresh lime wedges
1 teaspoon of sugar
Muddle berries and lime wedge with sugar in a short highball glass. Fill glass with crushed ice and add Wild Berries vodka and sweet and sour mix. Either shake and pour back into glass or stir briskly. Garnish with fresh berries.
