Luscious Liquid Dessert


Sobieski Vodka and Wolfgang Puck Fine Dining Group mixologist Shawn Barker have created the perfect alternative to a plate of cookies or Buche de Noel this holiday season. 
Shawn's Red Velvet martini uses Sobieska's latest flavor--vanilla--which has mellow brown sugar and hazelnut tones and a rich, buttery texture. Blackberries, dark chocolate, vanilla and ginger adds to the drink's decadence. Yum.

Sobieski Red Velvet
1 ½ oz Sobieski Vanilia Vodka
½ oz Blackberry puree
½ oz Dark Chocolate Liqueur
1 scoop vanilla bean ice cream
3 slices of muddled ginger
Crushed biscotti, for garnish

Add first five ingredients to a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously, and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with the crushed biscotti.
