The name Żubrówka comes from żubr, the Polish, Russian, Belarusian, and Ukrainian word for the wisent (European bison), which is particularly fond of eating buffalo grass." - by Wikipedia.org
This is very refreshing and easy drink to make. I didn't give exact quantities for the apple juice as it's completely up to you how strong you want it ;) Try it if you can, DO! Zubrowka is a strong vodka, but it has very nice and subtle taste. It's one of a very few vodkas I would drink (I know you all probably think that being Polish means that I drink all kinds of vodkas and a lot of it - well it's actually a complete opposite!).
How to make it...
- 50 ml Zubrowka
- apple juice (depending on how strong you want it)
- ice cubes
- lime or lemon slices
- 1 teaspoon mint liquer or mint syrup (or mint jelly as I did)
- fresh mint leaves
Put your vodka, mint liquer ice cubes and lime/lemon slices into a drink shaker and shake very well for few seconds. Pour your drink into a preffered glass, garnish with fresh mint leaves and serve immediately and enjoy!
P.S. Remember to drink responsibly and with moderation :)
