Cocktails With Krista
It’s 5 o’clock somewhere, right? As much as I love that fall is right around the corner, I still cannot shake the desire for a bubbly, fruity cocktail.
My favorite spirit is vodka, without a doubt my favorite vodka is Crystal Head Vodka. I mean obviously right, the bottle is a skull?
Crystal Head Vodka contains no additives or sugars. NOTHING BUT SPIRITS, as they state on their website. I love this! Seriously, you won’t be disappointed by the after taste. Actor, Dan Aykroyd concocted one of the BEST vodkas. Cheers to him!
Also, once you are done with the bottle you get the cutest skull vase to keep. That is definitely a perk in my book! I also enjoy lighting the bottle with a color changing tea light. Gives the bottle more personality.
To make my endless summer cocktail, you will need:
Crystal Head Vodka
Fine Grain Sugar
Start by sugaring the rim of your martini glass. I like to add sugar to a plate and add water around the rim of the glass. Then I will dip the top of the glass in the sugar on the plate. This puts just the right amount of sugar on the rim.
Next add ice to your shaker- along with 1.5 oz of Crystal Head Vodka and 4 oz of grapefruit juice.
Shake well and strain carefully into the martini glass. Avoid any spillage on the sugar rim part.
Next, top off your cocktail with brut champagne.
Viola! The perfect bubbly cocktail! I call this the fizzy greyhound!
