St Petersburg Vodka has created a recipe known as the Hermitage. It should become something of a classic as it has all the properties to a historical drink: taste, simplicity and elegance. You’ll probably want to use your favorite champagne, if you have one, to really impress yourself with the tastes. However, the champagne doesn’t overpower the drink and the vodka stays subtle in a good marriage, allowing folks that aren’t huge fans of either champagne or vodka to appreciate the cocktail on the palate.

In some ways there is a bit of a Mai Tai like flavor thanks to the almonds playing big in the drink. Or, perhaps, an almond daiquiri. Everyone is going to like this... unless you've got some crazy almond allergy. Otherwise, you may find the sweetness slightly balanced out against the lime to create a very enjoyable cocktail experience.
