Cardinal Sin Summer Cocktails

Cardinal Sin and Starka Vodkas from St Louis Distillery bottle shots

I love the name of Cardinal Sin Vodka, from the St Louis Distillery in the heart of the Midwest. The guys there recently put together some summer cocktail recipes, using their Cardinal Sin Vodka and the Cardinal Sin Starka that they also make. This was the USA’s first barrel-aged vodka, and is aged in Missouri white oak bourbon barrels. I can’t wait to taste it.

Meanwhile, here are those summer vodka cocktail ideas, with thanks to the St Louis Distillery:
