Legend has it that the bison grass which gives Zubrowka vodka its distinctive herbaceous flavour grows mysteriously well under a full moon.
A full moon is due to cast its enigmatic spell over the world just before Halloween on Monday 29th October – and to celebrate this captivating lunar spectacle, Zubrowka brand ambassador and cocktail connoisseur, Pawel Rolka, has created the Zubrowka Bison Tini Full Moon Cocktail.
It is not known why the full moon has this unusual influence on the bison grass, which only grows in the remote Bialowieza Forest in north-east Poland. But the grass becomes remarkably fragrant and releases a unique almond-like vanillaaroma during this captivating lunar phase.
The full moon is expected to occur when the moon is exactly opposite the sun ataround 12.50pm on Monday 29th October and Pawel Rolka’s special Zubrowka Bison Tini Full Moon Cocktail will provide a perfect treat to brighten up the start of the week – and a devilish drink to toast Halloween as well.
Commenting on his Bison Tini Full Moon Cocktail, Pawel Rolka said: “Mondays can be a dreary day so I created an upliftingly fruity cocktail with a delicious sweetness that is guaranteed to soothe away that start-of-the-week feeling and boost your spirits.
The Zubrowka Bison Tini Full Moon Cocktail will be shared on Zubrowka’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/zubrowkauk and Twitter feed @Zubrowkauk
Bartenders and budding cocktail creators everywhere will be invited to submit their own Full Moon Cocktail creations.
This Zubrowka Full Moon Cocktail is the fifth in a series – a delightful new cocktail combination will be created each month on the date of the full moon.
