Our Pepino drink; the perfect blend of citrus and spice

Meet our vodka lime soda reimagined. This takes the classic long drink and elevates it into a creative, edgy combo that’s out there in attitude and flavor. A Pepino drink of depth you’ll want to mix this up again and again. Infused with contrasting flavors of cucumber and smoky aromatics, this spicy cocktail is reminiscent of amber-hued Mexican sunsets and refreshing dips in Californian waters.

Amp it up or dial it down

Spicy vodka cocktails always hit the sweet spot between refreshment and delicious depth. Our bartender-created incarnation allows you to mix up the piquancy to just how you like it. Prefer things super hot? Easy – simply dust your glass with a touch more seasoning. Or go heavy on the fresh lime juice for less of a kick to your Pepino cocktail.

Pro tips

How to rim a glass

Ingredients
Prepare a plate or flat surface with the salt, sugar or spice you want to use
Run a piece of cut citrus along the rim of your chosen glass to wet the surface
Gently dip or roll the glass rim into your preferred flavour (i.e. sugar or salt).
Method
We love using Tajin® seasoning as a spicy rim in our Pepino drink recipe to contrast the sour tasting notes.
A sugar rim at your glas will pimp up every fruity cocktail.
Shake, stir, sip: enjoy a moment of pure pleasure
