‘Chopin Cuban’ – Cocktail with Champagne and Potato Vodka

Chopin Cuban Champagne Cocktail Recipe

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.

So, let’s make a cocktail with champagne and vodka made from potatos!
