Tips and Tricks

  • Cinco Vodka is made from 100% American wheat, and has a bit of mid-palate sweetness. This is naturally occurring, as we don't add sugar to our vodka.
  • Use exact measurements when making the Fleur de Lis. It's a delicate balance, and just a fraction of an ounce one way or the other can alter the taste profile.
  • There is a lot of regional and temporal variation within fresh squeezed citrus, and you may need to tweak based on the tartness or sweetness of limes (for example).
