Last month I was one of three judges in the Grey Goose Vodka Arbiter of Cool mixology contest. After writing two posts about the event I was contacted by a different vodka company that asked if I would like to sample their product. Who was I to pass up an opportunity to use the martini set John got for Christmas two years ago?
IKON True Russian Vodka was definitely a departure from the Orange Grey Goose from France that we polished off that week however we made the best of it, mixing it up several different ways.
I think John’s favourite recipe included some fresh raspberries we picked up.
Thanks to IKON for the sample bottle, I’m not usually a vodka drinker, but it’s nice to know there are other choices out there when it comes to these sorts of libations and also that they’re paying attention to what bloggers (and their customers) are saying.
