Holiday Cocktail Recipe with Khortysa Vodka and Raspberry Lemonade

The holidays are right around the corner.  Traditionally, I’m the person in my family who prepares appetizers, dishes or cocktails.

From my experience, having a delicious cocktail keeps everyone relaxed and enjoying the day.  It’s a fun way to remove the holiday edge after extensive traveling or managing kids.

Khortytsa Vodka is premium liquor that mixes with most beverages.  Not only does the distillery use local organic filters but it’s a great gift option for coworkers, family, and friends.  The new holiday gift set includes both Khortytsa Platinum and Khortytsa Honey Pepper

To jump-start the holiday season, I wanted to share a recipe for Vodka Raspberry Lemonade:
