Ever since I got back from the Maldives, I’ve been missing the tropical vibes. From palm trees and endless ocean views to white sand beaches and cocktails by the pool. I always try to bring my travels home, one way or another. By snapping polaroid pictures, buying fun little things or recreating recipes from aboard. To revive my memories from my trip to the Maldives, I created a cocktail with Oak by Absolut. This Maldivian-inspired cocktail is the perfect refreshing drink for summer!
What you need for one cocktail:
- Oak by Absolut
- Ginger ale
- Ice cubes
Oak by Absolut is a vodka rested on oak with a rich and aromatic character. It obtains its smooth and smokey taste by going through a six-month resting process in handmade oak barrels. This flavor of Absolut is slightly sweet and you can taste notes of vanilla, caramel and toasted oak.
Pour 4 cl Oak by Absolut, ginger ale and juice of one or two limes (according to your references) into a glass. Stir it well. Add ice cubes and some slices of lime to garnish. Enjoy!
This cocktail is best-enjoyed ice cold on a hot summer day or preferably at the beach in the Maldives. This travel exclusive product is a must-buy when passing through the airport, so be sure to purchase one up on your way to your next flight! Cheers!
