  • Wow! I thought this would be sweet but it's surprisingly tart and refreshing. It's like a super sophisticated lemon drop with delicate floral and vanilla notes. Best use of bison grass vodka without resorting to apple. — ☆☆☆☆☆

It's a nice-sounding

It's a nice-sounding drink...not having a lemon handy, and the time or energy to make infused honey syrup, I substituted a half-oz of Limoncello (Pallini) and squeezed a wedge of lime for a bit of tartness. Worked pretty well, when I added another wedge (1/4 lime total) and another oz. of Zubrowka, it got even better. Served it in a chilled cocktail glass.

Went out and bought lemons, will make the honey syrup tonight and try out the original recipe...I'm doing the research for my mom's 80th birthday celebration cocktail (Zubrowka is her favorite "hard" liquor), and this appears to be a winner. Plus, it has St. Germain (my elderflower liqueur of choice) could it not be good?
