Based in East Kelowna, Forbidden Spirits is a new addition to the B.C. craft distillery scene that offers premium spirits made from B.C. apples.
Their Rebel Vodka is handcrafted one batch at a time—first distilled using a 25-plate artisan copper still, then cold-filtered, leaving a hint of an apple note.
Here’s their recipe for a cocktail made with Rebel Vodka.
1 ½ oz Rebel Vodka
1 ½ oz Forbidden Syrups Lavender Lime simple syrup
cocktail foaming drops
cocktail bitters of choice
Add 1 ½ oz Rebel Vodka, 1 ½ oz lavender lime syrup, and 4 to 6 drops of cocktail foamer to a cocktail shaker.
Shake for 30 seconds.
Add ice and shake again for another 30 seconds.
Strain into a tumbler, add 3 drops of bitters of your choice on top of the foam, and swirl with a toothpick.
Garnish with a freshly picked lavender sprig.
