Reyka Equinox Cocktail - pic supplied

Autumn is officially upon us and Reyka Vodka has shared the perfect serve to celebrate.

Reyka Vodka, created in the Icelandic town of Borgarnes, unveils the Reyka Equinox Cocktail to enjoy while you gaze above the horizon. 

In a translation of Jesuit Canisius’ Catechism, an equinox is detailed to have first appeared in the 16th century, while a “solstice” appeared earlier in 1250. Witnessing the moment in which the plane of Earth's equator passes through the centre of the sun, Reyka Vodka adopts the Equinox cocktail as one of the perfect serves in celebration of this occurrence. 

It has a taste described as exceptionally smooth and rounded, with a soft natural sweetness and a slight hint of wild fruits.
