Cocktail of the Week: The Alaskan Pine with Leaf Vodka
Master Mixologist Juyoung Kang has devised one of this year’s coolest winter cocktails. Dubbed the Alaskan Pine, it’s made with LEAF® Vodka and is uniquely floral and herbaceous. “Aromas of lavender and sage, with the sweetness of vanilla, bring about a feeling of a warm hug,” notes Kang. “The clean taste of the Alaskan glacial water used to make LEAF Vodka adds a refreshing quality that makes this cocktail perfect for entertaining during winter celebrations,” she added.
