Stoli celebrates Absolutely Fabulous film with cocktails

Stoli Salted Karamel Addie Chinn

Bartenders have come up with a range of glamorous cocktails with Stolichnaya vodka to celebrate the release of Absolutely Fabulous The Movie on July 1.

The drinks, with names such as the Glitterati (pictured top), are inspired by the film which sees its Stoli and Bollinger-quaffing characters Edina and Patsy fleeing London for the high life on the French Riviera.

The recipes have been developed by bartenders including Amanda Humphrey from the cocktail development and training team Mixxit, part of Stolichnaya’s UK distributor, Maxxium UK.

They will not only be served at the film premiere’s fabulous after-party tonight but will also be available at bars around the country such as Freedom in Soho, London.
