    Summer is officially here! And here at Marie Claire it’s most definitely our favourite time of year. Beach holidays, music festivals, bbqs, long evenings and even longer nights – what’s not to love? If your anything like us your biggest conundrum come the weekend is finding the perfect balance between sunbathing and socialising. And well we can’t tell you the optimum ratio to maximise tanning hours and seeing your friends we can tell you which cocktail you should be enjoying whilst doing both!

    Our tipple of choice? Żubrówka Bison Grass Vodka. With it’s uniquely aromatic ingredient, bison grass, perfectly complimenting the hot summer temperatures any drink you choose to make with this will be soft on the palette and delicate in flavour.

    Żubrówka Bison Grass Vodka is part of a 500-year-old history, with each bottle’s blade of rare, hand picked bison grass enhancing its unique provenance and flavour. Cool, right?

    And the cocktails you need to be making with it. We’ve selected our two favourites – simple, classic and totally refreshing you literally can’t go wrong…
