ZUBROWKA UNVEILS FIRST FULL MOON COCKTAIL
I’m a little late with this press release, but it shouldn’t stop you from enjoying a cocktail! Look out for my own review on Zubrowka very soon!
Zubrowka Brand Ambassador and cocktail connoisseur Pawel Rolka has worked his mixology magic to conjure up an enchanting Full Moon Cocktail to celebrate this month’s full moon on 3rd July.
Full moons have long been associated with remarkable phenomena – and legend has it the bison grass that transforms Zubrowka into an exceptional vodka grows strikingly well under a full moon.
The reasons for this are shrouded in mystery, but the bison grass, which grows in secluded spots in the remote Bialowieza Forest in north-east Poland, has a unique almond-like vanilla aroma that becomes remarkably fragrant during this lunar phase.
The full moon is expected to occur when the moon reaches the opposite side of the Earth from the sun at around 18.50pm (GMT) on 3rd July. To celebrate the unusual influence the full moon has on the bison grass, Pawel Rolka has created a Full Moon Cocktail – an Apple Martini with a unique Zubrowka twist.
Commenting on his Apple Martini Full Moon Cocktail, Pawel Rolka said: “A full moon is such a magical moment and it is amazing to imagine that it intensifies the growth and aroma of the bison grass grows. When I was creating my Full Moon Cocktail, I also thought back to my fond childhood visits to the mysterious Bialowieza Forest and the wild apples that I discovered there. The fresh apple and apple liqueur remind me of thewild flavours and atmosphere of the forest – it is an incredible place and there is nowhere else like it in the world.”
The Apple Martini Full Moon Cocktail will be shown on Zubrowka’s new Facebook page at www.facebook.com/zubrowkauk Mixologists, bartenders and budding cocktail creators everywhere will be invited to submit their own Full Moon Cocktail creations on the Facebook page.
This Zubrowka Full Moon Cocktail is the first in a series – a delightful new cocktail combination will be created each month on the date of the full moon.
