There are many reasons for a cocktail to become revered, popular, or have its moment in cocktail culture. It could be that the drink hops on a great trend, and is mentioned or showcased in an important moment in a TV show or movie. It could be that it takes several ingredients that happen to be in-style, and “blow up” after a critically acclaimed bartender starts popularizing them with his regulars.

Sometimes, however, the cocktail is just a simple, non-pretentious, great drink that has a couple of key ingredients that separate it from most. The zipper and its combination of vodka and Chambord really make it unique and separate it from the thousands of cocktails that exists.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of vodka
  • 1 ounce of Chambord
  • 1 ounce of lemon-lime soda
  • Ice

Preparation:

  1. Simply build the ingredients in a chilled old-fashioned glass over ice.

Equipment:

  • Old-fashioned glass

The great thing about a zipper cocktail is that It is so easy to make, but unlike other combinations, it is still unique enough to be served en masse without it being “basic”, like a rum-and-coke or screwdriver. The fact that Chambord adds a black raspberry flavour to it at the very least should make it so that your guests appreciate a different flavour that they might not experience every day. Of course, this also is great for functions that are last-minute, as literally no equipment is needed.

All one has to do is build the ingredients over ice in a glass. For those who want to make their zipper a little more fruity, muddling some extra berries could give a fresh boost to the drink. Considering that the drink is relatively light in terms of how alcoholic it is, feel free to replace the lemon-lime soda with the wine of your choice if you would rather have something stronger for you and your guests. Ultimately, the zipper is a fresh and simple alternative, and great for vodka lovers and raspberry lovers alike!
