Porch Swing

1.5 oz Vodka (Boyd & Blair)
.75 oz June Liqueur
.75 oz Bergamot orange juice (or use lemon)
Dash Cherry and Vanilla Bark Bitters (Bittercube)
Lemon zest

Shake over ice. Strain into chilled cocktail glass.

This cocktail is named for it's easy going, delicate, and refreshing nature. We will be sipping many more of these come summertime, though bergamot oranges may be hard to come by so we wanted to take advantage of their unique tartness now. We opted for a regular lemon zest in place of the bergamot zest, as it can often be overpowering, and let the Bittercube Cherry Bark Vanilla serve as the aroma enhancer. This was our first time mixing with both June and Boyd and Blair Potato Vodka and were impressed with both products. The June liqueur is a delicate blend of botanicals similar to that of Dolin Blanc, but sweeter with a more sugary, cotton-candy flavor. Boyd and Blair Potato vodka is simply one of the best we've tasted. I would not consider myself a vodka fan and rarely find myself getting excited about vodka, but this elicited a true "wow" reaction. We look forward to many more cocktails with both products.
