Barbican Wormwood Vodka Cocktail

The first wormwood vodka is said to have been made in the 16th century, by Czech women who would harvest wormwood to make potions. They were deemed witches and nicknamed 'Babička', which is a term used for the grandmothers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia.

The Babickas are how this creamy vodka got its name. Made from thujone extracted from wormwood, Moravian corn and spring water from a 10,000-year-old spring, it is clear in colour and floral to taste, with tones of citrus and wormwood peeking through.

On the palate, we get a glimpse of vanilla, aniseed and caramel.

With an alcohol level of 40%, we've chosen this vodka as our March favourite because of its smooth taste and enchanting history.

This vodka is lovely on the rocks, but is the perfect partner for most cocktails, especially a Bloody Mary. Check out our recipe below!

Ingredients

50ml Babička Original Wormwood Vodka

90ml Tomato Juice (we recommend Big Tom!)

15ml Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed!)

2-3 Dashes Worcester Sauce

Tabasco (a few dashes to your liking)

Celery Salt

Pinch of Pepper

Ice

Optional:

Celery Stick

Green Olive

2. Stir well, before adding Worcester sauce.

3. Add some Tabasco, celery salt and pepper to taste. Stir well.

4. Garnish your drink with some celery and an olive.

5. Enjoy!
