Absolut launches its eighth Limited Edition ABSOLUT TEXAS. This is the brand’s first and only state-inspired flavor.
The taste is rich and smooth with notes of fresh cucumber, and a warm spicy character; a flavor inspired by Southwestern cuisine, which is as unique and authentic as Texas. It pairs well with a myriad of ingredients, such as cranberry, cilantro and grapefruit soda.
The bottle artwork has been created in collaboration with internationally renowned contemporary artist Cruz Ortiz from San Antonio. The design features a modern spin on iconic Texas imagery including a cowboy boot against a stylished Texas landscape and his take on the Texas star. The bottle also features Absolut founder Lars Olsson Smith wearing a cowboy hat, marking only the second time in the brand´s history in which Smith´s logo has been altered.
So the first drink I would try is the Heel Spur Martini
2.5 parts Absolut Texas
0.5 part Dolin Blanc Vermouth
2 dashes Celery Bitters
Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, and stir with ice.
Fine-strain into a chilled martini glass, and garnish with a lemon zest.
What else can we can mix with this?
