Blue Duck Breeze : : Mixology

There’s an art to drinking vodka. Not the Russian-spirited kick-back-forget-that kind of art. The art that recognises vodka belongs inside the occasional cocktail. As much as you enjoy the vodka soda with lime, we evolve.


Blue Duck is the brother spirit to Black Robin Gin, both produced in New Zealand. This hearty addition to the liquor cabinet goes a long way to earning the respect of any “connoisseur.” The Breeze family of cocktails has little origin, and I first ordered this (not for myself) at Conch in Ponsonby, expecting something sweeter than a vodka soda, but getting something a whole lot more intense.


A rounded bitterness with the Grapefruit juice kicks the cider off of the tip of your tongue, allowing the vodka to wash down the back of your throat in true style. In a way that only vodka knows how to do, you will become all too familiar with this pink beauty.



Best enjoyed as a summer afternoon tipple, I fully endorse having more than one of these guys. Allow vodka to work her magic; Blue Duck is full of wonder, and so is getting lowkey tiddly on a little fermented potato. Enjoy responsibly.



  • 45ml Blue Duck Vodka
  • 10ml Elderflower Cordial
  • 30ml Pineapple Juice
  • 60ml Grapefruit Juice
  • Kirin Cider



  1. Add ice to highball glass
  2. Build all ingredients over ice
  3. Stir very well
  4. Top with cider
  5. Garnish with fruit wedge (preferably something citrus)

    There are free web hosts, but you might “pay” for them in different methods.

    These services usually show a considerable amount of advertising
    in your website, which means that they might distract
    and annoy your clients. You should have completely no say in what kind of
    promoting appears on your web site. The presence of banner ads additionally offers
    your web site an unprofessional look.

    lugo, I don’t know the specifics of the tests the military uses for qualifying soldiers. I guess there is a big IF in all my demography-blindness, and that is “IF there are no thumbs on scales.” So … maybe I was snowed by the women in combat thing. I don’t know. I’m guessing IDF women best most of the male units they’re up against, but that is strictly apples-and-oranges.

    Today I had the greatest pleasure of picking up Balazs Gardi ex the airport in KZN, South Africa for his 1 1/2 weeks stay in our beautiful Province. My conclusion in the few hours I spent talking to him is that he is a very dedicated photographer and an incredibly intelligent human being. It is our greatest pleasure to host someone of his caliber in this Province.

    And I thought you were talking about the ‘gist’ of the conversation Ardis. I think that like it or not, the FLDS story is probably the story that would come to mind if you asked most non-LDS folks what they’d heard about mormons in the news this year. Prop 8 is probably second, and then Mitt. Or maybe Mitt and then Prop 8. I’m not sure how much the mormons and Prop 8 issue was publicized outside of Utah, California, and New York.
