Long Vodka Recipe

Long Vodka

Hailing from Lancashire and popularized in Scotland, the original Long Vodka recipe is said to be the accidental invention of Jacky Bevan.

The lime and bitters make for a tasty, sweet-sour version of the classic vodka and lemonade, adding zesty citrus flavours to lift the drink.
