The perfect citrus spring cocktail. Picture supplied

When you're separated from the world and surrounded by magnificent natural resources, you learn to think creatively and use whats at your disposal – just like the people of Iceland. Reyka Vodka, created and produced in Iceland, invites you to stir up the Orange Drink cocktail as you wave farewell to the citrus season.

Spring could not come at a better time, especially after a long, chilly winter.
