Stoli: make your own origami cocktail menu

Stoli vodka has created an origami-based cocktail menu to mark the launch of its Lotus series, a quartet of cocktails served four ways; long, on the rocks, with Champagne and as a Martini.

“Grey Goose has the Le Fizz, Ciroc is rocking the Piña Coladas, Absolut is working with star anise and Belvedere has gone down the health route. We realised we needed a signature serve, which led us to create the Lotus,” said Matthew Dakers, Stolichnaya vodka’s UK brand ambassador.

Each cocktail uses the same three ingredients; Elit by Stolichnaya, dry vermouth and grapefruit, but is served in one of four ways, inspired by the lotus flower, a symbol of purity and rebirth.

“It was hard to come up with the right name and took a long time”, said Dakers. “We didn’t want it be too masculine or too feminine, but as it shares a name with a Formula One racing car, the name lotus can make you think of a flower or a car.”

This origami-based cocktail menu has been created to help launch the range, once again taking inspiration from the Lotus flower.
