More and more people are being diagnosed with gluten intolerance. Therefore, it is not uncommon to hear the question, “what spirit can I still enjoy?” Vodka has always been a safe bet as there are different ingredients that can be used to make it. Among the brands reaching out to gluten free consumers is Stoli Vodka.
In May 2016, Stolichnaya launched Stoli Gluten Free which marked the first time a global vodka brand created a completely new, gluten-free recipe and product to meet the needs of gluten free consumers. Stoli Gluten Free is made with naturally gluten free ingredients, 88 percent corn and 12 percent buckwheat, a unique blend proprietary to Stoli that gives Stoli Gluten Free a bold taste with a smooth finish that’s great for cocktails.
We were recently approached to by Stoli to try out their new gluten free vodka. They also wanted to see what fun and unique seasonal cocktails we could come up with that not only featured their newest vodka, but were also completely gluten free. We wanted to create a cocktail that not only tasted great but fully utilized fall flavors. Pumpkin and apple spice are done so frequently, we decided pear was the perfect route. Hence the name, The Perfect Pear.
We hope you enjoy our new fall favorite! What fall flavors are you playing with? Let us know if the comments below or by using the hash tag #GeekEats!
