Shake Things up with a Wyborowa Valentine’s Day

Wyborowa Wodka - Valentines Day

Morning I-love-yous. Evening Netflix. Sunday brunch. Now, a bit of consistency in a relationship is always healthy, but shaking up your ritual can go a long way, too. It’s exciting. It’s sexy. And if there’s ever a day to do it on, it’s Valentine’s Day.

This year I’ve ditched the bottle of red and added Wyborowa to the mix. A double-distilled rye vodka (or wódka, as us Poles know it), Wybo’s an enjoyable spirit simply poured over ice — people do sip vodka, after all — thanks to its light anise aroma. But if you want to make your evening particularly memorable, try mixing it up in one of these cocktails courtesy of Poznań, Poland. 

The beauty of these mixed drinks is that their looks alone can be enough to impress your date, but the recipes are actually a snap (or a shake) to make. Even better? There’s one you can mix up for her to conclude your Valentine’s, well, night — and one more, just for you. (Because I’m good like that.)

Wyborowa Wodka - Chamble

For her: Chamble

Ingredients:

  • 40ml Wyborowa
  • 30ml lemon juice
  • 20ml simple syrup (I used this easy recipe from LCBO)
  • 10ml raspberry liqueur

Mix all ingredients except raspberry liqueur and pour into an old fashioned glass or tumbler. Top up with crushed ice. Pour raspberry liqueur over the ice, allowing it to lace down to the bottom of the glass. Optional: garnish with two raspberries.

Wyborowa Wodka - Northside

For him: Northside

Ingredients:

  • 50ml Wyborowa
  • 30ml lime juice
  • 20ml simple syrup
  • 8 mint leaves

Add all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with a few ice cubes. Shake well. Strain carefully into a pre-chilled cocktail or martini glass. Optional: garnish with a mint leaf.

This radio host 😍 @Jennapettinato and I  appeared on @am900chml to get the word out about rental fraud and the scam centred on our new home. (Yeah...) It hasn't been fun, but we're in it together and that makes all the difference. #HamOnt Framed. The Heart of the City exhibit at @redchurchcafe  was a great intro to #HamOnt and its architectural history. Damn, this city is beautiful. 🏫  #artgallery #architecture It's the most wonderful time of the beer 🎶 #instabeer #beer #craftbeer #winter #scotchale  #🍺 This magazine needs no introduction. (Actually, it kinda does.) Welcome to issue one of @thetitlemag. Inside you'll find style, gear and culture. Some fashion advice from yours truly, too.
