Holidays are the perfect opportunities to try out new recipes. With Valentine's Day around the corner, Russian Standard Vodka has created some cocktails with an "aphrodisiac twist" to help everyone get in the romantic mood.

 

If you can't travel to visit your favorite Russian lady for this occasion, consider scheduling a video chat date. You can share these recipes and enjoy one while you're chatting.

"Honey is associated with the Greek goddess of love and beauty, Aphrodite."

  • 4 ounces chilled sparkling white wine, such as Prosecco
  • Dash of orange bitters
  • 1 orange twist, for garnish

Pour honey and vodka into a mixing glass and stir until honey has dissolved. Then pour into a champagne flute and carefully top off with sparkling white wine. Finish with a dash of orange bitters and garnish with an orange twist.
