Chervona Wine from Kachka

kachka chervona wineIn the January/February 2018 issue, the folks from Kachka share their recipe for hunter’s vodka, a spice-infused spirit styled after the homemade versions they sampled in homes and restaurants across Russia and Belarus. This cocktail is a perfect way to put your next batch to good use.

1½ oz. hunter’s vodka
1½ oz. dry red wine
½ oz. sweet vermouth
½ oz. simple syrup (1:1)
Tools: shaker, strainer
Glass: double Old Fashioned
Garnish: orange twist, fresh-grated nutmeg

Shake all the ingredients with ice, then strain into an ice-filled glass. Squeeze the orange twist over the drink, then add it to the glass as a garnish and grate nutmeg over the top of the drink.
