Cocktail Inspiration:

Wodka is a Polish vodka. I wanted to keep things Polish And give people a taste of what Poland has to offer. I looked up some traditional flavors and ingredients in Polish cooking. I found that dried fruits nuts and savory spices were used often. And so I made the orgeat based on That. When doing research on drinks in Poland, I found the oranzada was very popular there and decided to incorporate that into my drink. I hope you enjoy.
