Like any ice lolly, the most important part of nailing a perfectly refreshing and delicious booze-infused ice popsicle is the ingredients. Ice lollies are just a couple of liquids mixed together, so if the flavour profile isn’t right, there’s nothing left for the treat to hide behind.

Russian Bear Vodka has disassociated itself from Russia. After the current conflict in Ukraine, trade between Russia and South Africa has become a concern for many consumers. The vodka brand decided to make it clear that Russian Bear vodka brand has absolutely no affiliation or link to Russia whatsoever.

 

Vodka and Tequila come together in a fruity martini recipe. The Mexi-tini is incredibly simple, requiring just three ingredients, and its orange flavour will bring a little sunshine to your day.

 

Tequila could soon overtake vodka as America’s favorite spirit, fueled by consumers’ desire for expensive bottles of agave-based spirits.
