Top Tipples: Supermarine Vodka and Two Easy Summer Recipes

Vodka doesn’t have the best reputation – whilst gin is enjoying its moment in the spotlight, vodka is often thought of as nothing more than a mixer. I have to say, I’d never even considered trying it neat until Supermarine vodka sent me a sample to try. It really is absolutely sublime when served neat over ice.

But you can’t really make a blog post out of that, so here are two cocktail recipes that showcase the delicious flavour of Supermarine Vodka!

Supermarine 75

This is a twist on the traditional French 75 – a cocktail served with gin, lemon juice, sugar and champagne. To make this a slightly less powerful concoction, sub out the champagne for tonic (Fever Tree’s elderflower or Mediterranean tonic is my favourite).

  • 50ml Supermarine vodka
  • 15ml lemon juice
  • 10ml simple syrup
  • English sparkling wine to top up

Shake the vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup in a cocktail mixer with ice. Strain into a glass and top up with champagne. Garnish with a twist of lemon.

Supermarine Strawberry Moscow Mule

Ginger ale / beer is not the most popular of soft drinks in the UK, but you’d never guess that by the number of hammered copper mugs currently filling the shelves of the home and kitchen sections in supermarkets and department stores. This is a simple drink, so don’t make things complicated – you only need to measure the vodka so you know how much you’ve had… Maybe this will become less important as the night goes on…

  • 50ml Supermarine vodka
  • 1 lime
  • Handful of strawberries
  • Ice
  • Ginger beer

Save a couple of strawberries for the garnish, plus a centre slice of your lime. Muddle the rest into your mug, then squeeze over the lime and add in some ice. Pour the vodka over and top up with ginger beer. Add your garnishes and cheers!
