To celebrate National Vodka Day on October 4th, Belvedere Vodka is sharing three classic vodka cocktail recipes.
‘Vodka’ is the Slavic word for ‘little water’ and Belvedere say they honor their heritage by creating Belvedere vodka with just three simple ingredients: Polish Dankowskie Rye, Water and Character!
Belvedere’s Classic Martini
- 2 oz / 60ml Belvedere Vodka
- .25 oz / 7ml French Fortified Wine
The Belvedere Spritz
- 1 oz. Belvedere Vodka
- 1 oz. Lillet Blanc
- 2 Grapefruit slices
- 1 Sprig of thyme
Method: Combine all ingredients in a Belvedere spritz glass, over ice. Top with equal parts of sparkling water and tonic water. Garnish with a grapefruit slice and a sprig of thyme.
Belvedere’s Eastern Standard Vodka Cocktail
- 2 oz Belvedere Vodka
- 1 oz Fresh Lime Juice
- 3/4 oz Simple Syrup
- 3-4 Mint Leaf

Method: Hand slap mint and drop in tin with remaining ingredients. No need to muddle anything the ice during the shake will break everything up. Add ice to tin and shake and strain with a fine strain into a coupe. Garnish with a thin cucumber slice.
