Żubrówka is a Polish vodka that is infused with bison grass from the Białowieża Forest on the border between Poland and Belarus. It has a vague hint of vanilla and almonds, and I love using it in drinks and cocktails mixing it with champagne and other ingredients. But an amazingly easy and delicious drink is to only use Żubrówka and apple juice. The vodka in combination with the apple juice results in a wintery drink with a scent of cinnamon and vanilla. In Poland the combination of Żubrówka and apple juice is often refered to as Tatanka or Szarlotka. Szarlotka actually means apple pie and gives you a clue about how delicious this cocktail is! Just make sure to use fresh apple juice to get a really tasty drink.
Happy New Year!
