Russian Standard and Cointreau Noir are great products for any occasion.  To celebrate them we decided to put this piece together that not only will give you delicious recipes, but also go a little bit in more detail about what these 2 are really made of.


Russian Standard Vodka was created by Russian entrepreneur Roustam Tariko in 1998.  Now, after 16 years this very well known premium vodka can be found in more than 80 countries in the world!

But let’s not go too fast,  this fine vodka didn’t grow out no where,  it has created a differential factor with their unique creation processes.   From a proprietary distillation procedure that retains the natural sensory character of the pure vodka to their controlled 200 distillation stages, Russian Standard has achieved the absolute transparency of their product.  Their high quality procedures, brand awareness and history  make for a tasteful yet strong 100% Russian Vodka!

Cointreau Noir,  created by master distiller  Bernadette Langlais it’s a delicious blend of Cointreau and Remy  Martin. The fusion of these 2 premium products create the perfect liquor for those who find cognac a little too strong.  Cointreau Noir’s harmonious formula is 70% Cointreau and 30% Remy Martin.  The mix has resulted in a sweet orange flavor with soft vanilla and nut notes and a golden amber color.

It’s ideal for fall desserts like pumpkin, apple or pecan pie. You can enjoy it on the rocks or in a cocktail, like the one we chose!
