National Vodka Day : Moon Mountain Harvest HiBall

The folks over at Moon Mountain had this recipe created for them by Kathy Casey Liquid Kitchen™. To celebrate National Vodka Day I attempted to make it. It was supposed to be my first vlog but man that it harder than it looks!

So instead, if you want to give it a go:

Harvest Highball

1 1/2 ounces Moon Mountain Organic Vodka
3/4 ounce Housemade Cranberry Syrup including 3- 4 of the berries (recipe follows)
3/4 ounce Fresh Lemon Juice
1 1/2 ounces Fresh Orange Juice
2 dashes Angostura Bitters

1. Measure the Moon Mountain Vodka, Cranberry Syrup including a few of the berries, lemon juice and orange juice into a cocktail shaker.
2. Fill with ice and add the bitters.
3. Shake vigorously and pour into a tall glass.

    New follower. Love this post!

  2. Brave for even attempting a vlog – I can barely manage looking acceptable for work, much less for my blog – I’m determined to stick with typing for now! That said, this would be a good one to start on, yum!

  3. That looks wonderful! But what is up with that ingredient list! I’m more of a Coke meet Rum kind of girl.

    • Ha! I’ve been getting more into artisan cocktails but I have to admit even I was like “I have to make my own puree?!”

  4. I was afraid it was whiskey but vodka I can do. Not so much whiskey.

    I want to see you make cocktails on livestream! Get to it, lady!
