Summer Cocktail Collab (Recipes!)

June 6, 2019

To celebrate summer, Poland-based vodka-maker-extraordinaire Luksusowa (it’s made from potatoes, using the same recipe since its creation in 1928) partnered with James Millard of the Toronto-based restaurant Mistura to create three hot-weather-worthy cocktails that can be made at home or, if you’re in The Six, enjoyed at the restaurant from June 24th to July 2nd, 2019. Cheers to summer! —Vita Daily


Caesar Lux

2 oz Luksusowa Vodka
6 oz Walter Craft Caesar Mix
6 drops white truffle oil

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and mix using a rolling technique. Pour into a Collins glass rimmed with celery salt and garnish as desired. (More garnish ideas: try a a pickle spear, spicy pickled beans, pickled mushrooms, olives, a lemon wheel … the list goes on. Make it yours!)


Luksusowa Raspberry Sour

2 oz Luksusowa Vodka
1 oz lemon juice
3/4 oz simple syrup
3/4 oz egg white
6–8 fresh raspberries

Combine all ingredients in a shaker. Dry shake first, followed by a second shake with ice. Single strain into a coupe or martini glass. Garnish with two raspberries on a bamboo skewer.


Luksusowa Coffee Cocktail

2 oz Luksusowa Vodka
2 oz espresso or Bialetti Moka stovetop coffee
1/2 oz maple syrup

Combine all ingredients in a shaker and give it a strong shake with cubed ice. Single strain into a coupe or martini glass and garnish with three coffee beans. Tip: to get defined layers, the trick is to shake it really hard.
