We Recommend

This twist on the classic mint julep uses Bison Grass vodka in place of the usual bourbon and adds apple juice, peach liqueur and passion fruit for a wonderfully fruity summertime smash.

If you’re planning a mobile bar hire during the warm summer months a cocktail like this could be a great way to cool off.

Juleps and smashes are made with crushed ice, and mixed in the container they are served in, this means they are quick and easy for bartenders to prepare, helping to keep your guests happy and their glasses full. This drink would feature brilliantly alongside other, classic, julep style drinks.

You may want to consider the originator of this style of cocktail: the Mint Julep. This American favourite features bourbon, mint and sugar mixed with crushed ice to create a refreshing, light but complex cocktail, combining the rich spicy warmth of bourbon and the cool zing of mint.  

Bison Grass vodka comes from Poland and has a mellow, floral, almost sweet flavour, this makes it an excellent choice to elevate classic vodka cocktails. If you’d like to feature some other vodka classics, using this unique spirit it is classically paired with apple juice, so something like an Apple Vanilla Martini could be perfect.

This fruity spin on the classic martini features apple juice and vanilla syrup to create a moreish cocktail with the soft sweetness of vanilla and the bite of sharp organic apple juice.
