Three Cocktails for Russia Day

Did you know that today is Russia Day? This is a rather recently established Russian national holiday that celebrates the sovereignty of the united Russia. In honor of this Russian holiday, we have a few cocktails that are cool and refreshing - even for those of us who are not Russian! We're glad to celebrate along, if it means getting to drink one of these...

All three of the cocktails were developed by Russian Standard Original Vodka to celebrate the country’s 18th year of independence. They offered traditional toasts along with the recipes:

“Do dna” – “to the last drop”
“Za vstrechye” – “to being together”
“Za zdorovie” – “to health”
