Festive Cocktails from EFFEN Vodka

EFFEN_Cucumber-Cranberry Yuletide

If you’re looking for some spirits to spice up a party, flavored vodka can be a great choice. We recently discovered EFFEN Cucumber Vodka which is unlike anything we’ve tried so far. It offers a nice alternative to all the fruit-flavored vodkas out there with a more sophisticated taste. With holiday season in full swing and New Year’s Eve around the corner it’s a great option to serve or bring along to a party.

Here are some cool recipes the good folks at EFFEN shared with us.
