Buckeye Vodka’s Ohio Favorite Jammin’ Cocktail

Drink, Recipes

Charlie Ballinger uses soda water as the base for many summer cocktails, including this one, to bring the fizz. The combination of mint and raspberry jam are the flavors that set this cocktail apart from the crowd. Ballinger also notes that the clean taste of Buckeye Vodka helps call attention to the fresh, summertime flavors. To get the most out of your mint, Ballinger suggests muddling before stirring it into the drink. “It’s light, it’s not flavorful,” he says of the soda water, “so you’re not going to take away from the flavors of the drink you’re trying to highlight.”
