42Below's honey vodka is a fantastic mixer and I've had it in many great cocktails, Santa's Whiskers being one of them. In this delightful holiday cocktail, the luscious vodka is delicately mixed with the apple brandy, Calvados, along with a touch of nectar and bitters.

The drink is the result of a mixing session at The Bedford in Chicago in which 42Below's Brand Ambassador Borys Saciuk and Mixologist Pete Gugni created a couple of festive drinks with the vodka. Both drinks will be mixed throughout the 2011 holiday season at the historic bank turned bar (complete with vault), or you can mix one up yourself for the holidays.
