As a bartender there are recent recipes and old recipes, but just like sex you are only brilliant until you come to the realization that some did it before and someone will do it again. Ketel one has reinvented orange vodka… I hope that they have put the same time effort and skill that is in Ketel One and the Citron that followed. With this in mind I shall taste, enjoy and be merry with the Ketel latest installment of a very elite line of premium vodka’s as I welcome Ketel One Oranje.

I have tried out the Ketel One Oranje straight, on the rocks, chilled, and the recipes that are below. The fragrance of Ketel One Oranje is a wonderful almost deceiving is this vodka? Of course the flavor lets you know that yes it is still smooth as any other Ketel One vodka. The Ketel One Oranje is very easy to work with and blends well into cocktails almost completely disappearing this allows you to create some great orange juice based cocktails. In the end I would recommend Ketel One Oranje especially if you like other orange vodkas. Served chilled or over the rocks this vodka acts like the rock star Ketel One already knows it is.
