Elegant cocktail for IWD


Russian Standard Vodka has created an elegant and feminine cocktail – The Melangé – to celebrate International Women’s Day (March 8, 2010).

This delicate cocktail infuses the delightfully unusual dog rose with vodka and lime.

The dog rose, also known as rosa canina, is exceptionally high in vitamin C, iron and antioxidants. It also has plenty of history – the fruits have been used since prehistoric times for their unparalleled health benefits, and as a treat in pies, teas, and marmalades around the world.

A rose petal preserve works equally well with this refreshing cocktail as the floral notes enhance the femininity of the Melangé.

The Melangé

50 ml Russian Standard
60g Dog Rose Preserves
15 ml Lime Juice
Shake over ice, double-strain and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.
Garnish with an orchid flower
