Created by Jonathan Pogash, The Cocktail Guru
1 oz. Caorunn Gin
1 oz Van Gogh Wild Appel Vodka
1 oz. Lillet or Dry Vermouth
2 dashes Baked Apple Bitters (Optional)
Stir ingredients very well with ice and strain over 1 large ice cube into a rocks glass.
Garnish with a floating star anise and apple slice on rim of glass.
Caorunn Apple Smash (This is one super-tasty cocktail that tastes like the best fizzy apple cider ever)
1 3/4 oz. Caorunn Gin
5 oz. Premium Tonic Water
1/4 Red Apple
1/4 Green Apple
Muddle quartered apples with Caorunn in a cocktail shaker.
Add cloves and shake hard until cold.

Verry Merry Vodka Cocktail
1 rosemary sprig, de-stemmed
1/2 oz. honey syrup
1/2 oz. orange juice
1/2 oz. grapefruit juice
1 oz. Van Gogh Vodka
1 oz. sparkling wine (Prosecco or your favorite sparkling wine would be a good fit. It doesn’t have to be expensive but it should have a flavor you like)
Muddle the rosemary and cranberry in the honey syrup and juices.
Add the Van Gogh Vodka plus ice and shake well.
Strain over ice into a rocks glass, top with cold sparkling wine, and stir briefly.
Garnish with a rosemary sprig wrapped in a long grapefruit peel.
If you need a punch for a party, here’s an amazing one from Van Gogh Vodka;
The Holland Holiday punchpacks bold flavor with only a few ingredients.
Our signature Van Gogh Pomegranate goes through an all-natural, double-infusion process that gives it a subtly sweet, slightly tart flavor perfect for fall.
750ml bottle Van Gogh Pomegranate
3 cups cranberry juice
2 cups fresh cranberry-honey mix*
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
Add 2 cups fresh cranberries to a container and muddle with 1 cup honey and ½ cup warm water.
Add all ingredients to a punch bowl with ice and stir well to chill and dilute.
