Vodka • Sweet
Apricot Sour

Someone, somewhere, may have created an apricot-infused vodka, but the apricot, underrated cousin to the peach, is not commonly used in vodka cocktails. Too bad, because its ambrosial sweetness and gentle tropical notes fuse surprisingly well with not only the pleasing texture of Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka but also the bold flavors of spices like ginger. A half-ounce of fresh lemon juice balances out this delightful apricot-colored creation.
