Beverage Monday

Blavod is a black vodka. They add the herbal extract catechu to acheive the color of the vodka. Perfect for this time of year & because my birthday is tomorrow and this is the mood I am in! So here are a few black cocktails to try.

Black Widow

2 oz Blavod vodka
3 oz cranberry juice

Pour the cranberry juice first into a Highball Glass filled with ice. Slowly pour the Blavod over a bar spoon to float it on top. If you don't use Blavod you won't get the effect.

Black Magic

2 oz Blavod black vodka
1/2 oz grenadine
lemon-lime soda
maraschino cherry for garnish

Pour the vodka and grenadine into Collins Glass filled with ice. Fill it to the top with soda. Garnish with the cherry.

Black & Gold
2 oz Blavod vodka
1 oz Goldschlager

Pour the Blavod into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Cocktail Glass. Top with the Goldschlager.

Black Cat
2 oz. Blavod Black Vodka
1/2 oz. Chambord

Combine in a cocktail shaker with a cup of ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Cocktail Glass.
