Vodka 14, a certified organic vodka that is distilled in the Rocky Mountains, has created four delicious cocktails for the winter season, highlighting flavors that are perfect for Valentine’s day or just a quiet night at home.

Combine 3oz Vodka 14 and 1.5oz Ficklin’s Chocolate Passport (a dark chocolate infused port) with ice in a martini shaker and shake. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with an unwrapped Hershey’s Cherry Cordial Kiss on long toothpick.
Organic Classic Cosmo 14
The classic cosmopolitan is a cocktail that exudes sexy style to the last deep red drop. To craft your own organic version, mix together 3oz of Vodka 14, .5oz organic orange juice, and 2oz of organic cranberry juice. Add a squeeze of fresh lime and shake on ice. Strain into a martini glass, garnished with a twist of lime.
Pomegranate and Mint 14
Pomegranate gives this cocktail a lovely pink color, and a uniquely intriguing flavor. Vigorously shake 3 oz Vodka 14 and 2oz fresh extracted pomegranate juice on ice in a martini shaker. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with fresh pomegranate and a generous sprig of fresh mint.
Fire and Ice 14
Ignite some passion with this tantalizingly spicy cocktail: infuse a whole 750 ml bottle of Vodka 14 with fresh multi-colored Thai peppers by simply inserting them directly into the bottle. Allow to steep at room temperature for 3 to 5 days. Shake 3 ounces of the infused vodka on ice and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a long whole red Thai pepper.
