Żubrówka on my mind….
Posted by: Michał In: wódka with a W
This is what happens when I get bored on a rainy Saturday afternoon – I take pics of my own wódka collection. I’m sure there’s a name for this condition.
Anyway, the picture above shows my favourite Polish drink, Żubrówka, aka the bison vodka, aka the grass vodka. The traditional one has a leaf of grass inside, hence the name.
The best way to drink it is with apple juice, one part of vodka to three (roughly) parts of chilled apple juice.
Although someone recently texted me from a bar in Soho where they were enjoying ‘fabulous martinis with zubrowka, krupnik mint [another good Polish vodka] and apple juice’. Sound good. Got some Krupnik at home, might even give it a try tonight. After all, the weather only encourages drinking…
