  • Ice 
  • orange 

An easy and enhanced recipe to the iconic drink!

Instructions

To start, we always recommend chilling your glass. Once chilled, pour your favorite vodka.  

Add the cardamom and the orange peel. Before adding the cardamom gently crush it with the palm of your hand or the top of your fingers; This will help to release their aromas. 

Let it rest for 2-3 minutes and stir. 

Add ice, use plenty of ice to reduce melting; this will help enhance the flavors of your drink. Pour your soda.

Now rim your glass with the orange twist (wash it well) and garnish your drink with it. You can always use lemon or lime if that's your to go citrus. 

Let your drink rest. It is important to let it rest about 30–40 seconds before drinking so both then vodka and soda can absorb all the flavors of the botanicals.      

Cheers, and enjoy!
