Holiday cocktail vodka martini recipe | Zirkova Vodka candy cane martini

Serves 2

Preparation time 15 minutes

Look, cookies and milk are nice and all, but did anyone ever bother to ask Santa what he really wanted? Like an ultra premium vodka, perhaps? We sure think so.

Zirkova Vodka is the first brand to create two unique ultra premium vodkas specifically crafted for every palate, preference, occasion and even ol' Saint Nick himself, culminating in a vodka experience that’s as unique as you are.

Mix up the festive tipples this year and experience a different kind of holiday spirit with quadruple distilled, velvety smooth Zirkova Vodka.

Zirkova One is specially crafted to be sipped neat, on the rocks, with soda and in classic martinis. Zirkova Together is masterfully formulated to make cocktails that taste noticeably better.

Although it's based in Ontario, Zirkova is made from rye and wheat at the Zlatogor Distillery in Ukraine where their vodka master (who holds an actual PhD in vodka blending) selects only the centre-cut spirits or “Tsar’s Cut” for a refined taste with a pleasant aroma and no burning sensation.

Both premium vodkas follow the same distillation process at the same price point with the only difference being how each vodka is finished and filtered. Whether you like it mixed, neat or both, these vodkas are created to personalize your drinking experience.

Zirkova Vodka is available at your local LCBO and is gluten-free, keto-friendly and vegan, so everyone on your wish list can enjoy. Cheers to that.
