Very nice but very strong for those of us who are not big vodka drinkers, definitely warms the gills. Fantastic refreshing drink.
I love vanilla vodka and am always looking for new drink recipes in which to enjoy it. This was fantastic! I did muddle the mint leaves with the sugar for more of a minty taste as per the previous review, and I will continue to do so in the future (in about 5 minutes :)). Thanks!
Beautiful! I ended up having 1 oz lemon juice from a medium 1/2 lemon, which was perfect. These are sweet, but not overly so. I also muddled the mint with sugar to start with, just to get some more aroma infused to the drink.
