When the temperature outside starts to dip, you naturally gravitate towards a spirit that will warm you up. Belvedere Vodka’s Smogóry Forest, from the Single Estate Rye series, is a rich, toasty vodka, with subtle hints of honey and caramel. Crafted with rare Diamond Dankowskie Rye from a single estate in Smogóry, a charming village in Poland, the beauty in this spirit starts at its unspoiled roots, and ends in the smooth finish.
Our favorite cocktail to mix with this savory vodka is dubbed Remember The Grain. Mixed with seasonal flavors of cherry and sweet vermouth for balance, Belvedere’s Smogóry Forest is able to stand out without being too powerful. Finish with a dash of absinthe and chocolate bitters and your cocktail is ready to be savored. Pro tip: we recommend finding a cozy fireplace to enjoy Remember The Grain in front of.
