Halfway through an impromptu Arlington bar crawl last summer, some friends and I ended up at a random rooftop bar. The drink special that night: $2 Ketel One Botanicals flavors. Obvious outcome: we tried all of them. It was a boozy night.
Now considering the wino that I am (because let’s be real), vodka drinks aren’t really my thing. Never have been. No shade at anyone, I just always prefer a good glass of wine.
That said, one sip of the Ketel One Botanicals Peach & Orange Blossom vodka with club soda and I knew it would be a game-changer. It’s crisp, light, refreshing, low-calorie (bonus!) and genuinely taste pretty good.
Fast forward to a few months ago. I’m scrolling on social and I see a pin about a honey lemon cocktail. Unfortunately, I didn’t actually save that pin – oops! – but I had a feeling the Ketel One Peach would make the perfect base for a libation with a honey lemon vibe.
I’m not saying I’ve like made a switch to only drink vodka now, because obviously I haven’t. However, I’ve definitely enjoyed experimenting with the different Ketel One Botanicals flavors over the last few months in quarantine. And after a few rounds of trial and error (plus one bona fide disaster attempt), I settled on my final recipe. Here’s my Ketel One Peach Honey Blossom martini. It’s delicious. Enjoy!
Peach Honey Blossom Martini
+ Squeeze 1/2 lemon into a cocktail shaker and add 1 tsp of honey
+ 2 oz Ketel One Botanicals Peach & Orange Blossom vodka
+ 1/2 oz St Germain (the most delicious elderflower liqueur!)
+ Add ice and shake
+ Strain into martini glass
+ Top with club soda/champagne for fizz
+ Garnish with flowers
Have you tried any of these Ketel One flavors yet? What do you think? Let me know in the comments! And if you’re looking for more boozy inspo with my fave elderflower liqueur, try this sparking St. Germain cocktail, the Summer Fling.
