Introducing part three of the Seven Deadly LeSins – Luxury with LeSin Vodka.
This seven-part series will bring you 14 totally unique recipes brought together by Chilled 100 Ambassadors and the LeSin team.
LeSin Vodka teamed up with the Chilled 100 to get creative and give back to bartenders with their Seven Deadly LeSins cocktail program. The brand put together a program to not only put much-needed funds directly in the hands of bartenders, but to create unique recipes for both professionals and home enthusiasts to try. Charles Vaughn, Founder of LeSin, explained, “We challenged the talented LeSin teams and Chilled 100 Ambassadors to create something new and amazing that you can look forward to when the world re-opens (and it will), and also something sure to impress your friends when you entertain at home during these different times. We felt this LEVEL UP was something in between on-premise and off-premise, so we called it HOME-PREMISE.”
Vaughn added that the program was about how to do more than just make a cocktail; it was about finding a way to infuse each recipe with energy. After all, when you go out for a night of drinking, there’s so much more to the experience than just what you’re drinking.
Bartender Crystal Edwards was challenged to create a cocktail inspired by the theme of Luxury and the color Champagne.
Crystal Edwards Presents: LeSin Rose Royal & The Rose Petal
The LeSin Rose Royale is a riff on the classic French 75. It embodies luxury by combining the flavors of vanilla, the essence of rose and the smoothness of LeSin Vodka. Topping off with fine champagne provokes a feeling of elegance and indulgence.
