Blavod pronounced blah-vod is a black vodka that I just had to try and it has become one of my favorite vodkas on the market.  The color derives from black catech which is extracted from the heartwood of Burmese catechu acacia trees. 

This vodka makes very smooth drinks and the taste is subtle yet distinct when used with other mixers. Here are two drinks to try out for Halloween.

Black Widow

1.5 oz Blavod vodka

3 oz cranberry

Pretty isn’t it? For a stronger taste do equal parts of each (my personal preference).  Garnish with lime slice on top.  Pour ice in highball glass.  Pour in cranberry and float in the Blavod.

Black Cosmo (makes one martini)

2 oz Blavod vodka

2 oz cranberry juice

1 oz triple sec

1 oz sweetened lime

Use a martini shaker filled with ice then shake shake shake pour pour pour and voila a beautiful black martini.  Serve in a chilled glass. Garnish with lime. 

Enjoy muahahaha…..
