Mixology

Antonio Del Monte, Renaissance Mixologist, demonstrates how to make the best classic cocktails you’ve ever tasted using Renaissance vodka.

Renaissance vodka brings flavours from its sugar beet origins that combine perfectly to make the most delicious cocktails.

From earthy, herby tones in the Bloody Mary

… it brings a creamy, smooth taste to the Sour

… and works beautifully with citrus flavours in the Dry Martini.
