ABSOLUT CARAFE Cocktails: A Taste of Summer

Summer may have forgotten about Sydney this year but there’s no reason to start drinking hot toddies and mulled wine. The ABSOLUT CARAFE Collective brings eight carafe-style cocktails with flavour profiles that include the fruity, the tropical and the spicy.


Using five popular ABSOLUT vodka varieties, CITRON, PEARS, APEACH, RASPBERRI, BERRI AÇAÍ, eight cocktails from the collection can be made at home or tried at select venues around Australia.

  1. I dont’ think I’ve ever met an Absolut I didn’t like. 🙂

  2. Aww, are you having a non-summery summer in Sydney?

    I’m not usually a vodka fan (or rather, it doesn’t like me!) but these cocktails look really refreshing and tempting. I’ll wait for our summery summer to arrive before I sample any, I think.

    • We get a few hours of sunshine then back to winter. These cocktails surely brighten up a fickle non-existent summer!
