OAK By ABSOLUT Mixed Drinks

Oak by Absolut is only in select markets. Los Angeles is one of them!

Last night I had a great old time. I was invited to the unveiling of OAK by ABSOLUT. If you’re wondering what that is…. a brand new product featuring a combo of original ABSOLUT vodka, barrel rested vodka and vodka rested on OAK. Initially I was intrigued since I love Vodka drinks, but I was completely sold when I tasted the depth of character and richness OAK by ABSOLUT has. It’s smooth with subtly smoky flavors combined with notes of vanilla, caramel, and toasted oak.

OAK by ABSOLUT served neat

I got to try a sample of three easy to make drinks using the new OAK by ABSOLUT, and I thought to myself  “I’m glad Los Angeles is one of the 9 select cities OAK by ABSOLUT is being sold because I just found my new favorite spirit.”  Pick up a bottle and make the recipes below! As they say in Sweden…. Skål!
