The vodka you typically drink is most likely made from fermented grains such as wheat or rye. However, there are some vodkas that are made from something a little different – potatoes. Chopin potato vodka is one such an example, a premium 4-times distilled liquor made in small batches in Poland. Its said to have a creamy taste, with a hint of apple, and it pairs very well with champagne.
The mint and the lime juice bring out the apple notes in the vodka, making for a very fresh, ripe drink. This is certainly a sophisticated cocktail, and it’s perfect for any high-class evening with friends, family or colleagues.
