Bank Holiday Cocktail: The ODDKA Flower Bud

A few months ago, when ODDKA sent me their crazy new vodka flavours to try, I was pretty much sure it would be a fun novelty drink (probably pretty tasty) but only the sort of thing I'd use to show off at parties.

While Oddka vodkas definitely make a good talking point (electricity flavour vodka, anyone?) they're actually much, much more than a novelty. A case in point is the gloriousness that is ODDKA's Twisted Melon flavour: it was the surprising runaway hit of the night when my family, friends and I reviewed the ODDKA range and just burst with authentic fruit flavours. It's also not as sweet as you'd expect - so it doesn't leave your mouth all sugary.

I really enjoyed drinking the twisted melon vodka neat, over ice, but the Oddka guys just sent me a bank holiday cocktail - The Flower Bud - that blew my mind. It's summery, fresh and moreish, and bursting with fruit flavour.

No, the weather forecast isn't exactly brilliant for the weekend, but hey - it ain't raining yet...

The ODDKA Flower Bud cocktail (serves one - multiply as needed)

  • 50ml ODDKA Twisted Melon
  • 20ml Lemon juice
  • 10ml Sugar syrup
  • 10ml Grenadine
  • Soda Water
  • 1 slice of cucumber

1. Pour all the ingredients into a highball glass loaded with ice cubes and top up with soda. 
2. Give it a good stir and garnish with a slice of cucumber to create a refreshing cocktail that truly captures the essence of summer.
