Original recipe of the week: Red Chilli VodkaCultureFood & DrinksInterviews & Recipes
We say this loosely – but who doesn’t love vodka? With Coke, lemonade or even soda and lime, it’s a great spirit for mixing on a hot summer’s day (or for enjoying straight on a cold winder’s day if you’re Russian).
We’ve encountered great examples of every flavour under the sun, but we think red chilli needs a new outing. Easy to prepare and perfectly spiced, our red chilli vodka has a real kick, but be warned – you’re going to have to wait for it!
