Celebrity Apprentice Star Brande Roderick Creates Orzel Signature Cocktail a The Grapefruit Burst

WESTON, FL (March 18, 2009) – Celebrity Apprentice Star and former Playboy Playmate Brande Roderick has teamed up with the unprecedented ultra-premium Polish ORZEL Vodka to create a delightfully refreshing cocktail with a flirty pink twist: The Grapefruit Burst.

Roderick worked with master mixologists to create a unique, one-of-a-kind cocktail, perfect for the spring season. All of ORZEL’s signature cocktails are designed by master mixologists to showcase the light, clean flavor of ORZEL Vodka. The unique ultra-premium liquor is made especially for vodka drinkers with discerning palates and promises to deliver a taste like no other.

The ORZEL Grapefruit Burst is a mix of ORZEL Vodka, grapefruit juice, guava nectar, fresh lime juice and a pinch of salt.  A unique component that is also included in this recipe is Elderflower Essence, which is the product of steeping freshly picked elderflowers in simple syrup and lemon juice. This floral, herbal ingredient is a popular European drink component and relatively unknown to the U.S. market.  The Grapefruit Burst is shaken and served in a champagne flute – a stunning tribute to Roderick, with a perfect blend of sweet citrus and a polished pink complexion that emulates the femininity and fierceness that Roderick exudes.

Roderick is one of the celebrity stars of NBC’s hit reality show, Celebrity Apprentice. Her personal touch of fresh herbal mixtures with the zest of natural grapefruit and smoothness of ORZEL Vodka in The Grapefruit Burst creates the perfect cocktail for the ultimate ending to any day…even those that end in “You’re Fired!” 

World-renowned distillery, Polmos Lublin, has been handcrafting the finest Polish vodka since 1906.  Their master distillers have perfected the production techniques for several generations, including quartz filtering to eradicate impurities and small batch distillation to create the world’s smoothest vodka. Polmos Lublin was founded by Emil Plage, a turn-of-the century entrepreneur who also founded the Lublin Aircraft Factory. Plage’s pioneering spirit and vision enabled him to create unique and innovative techniques in vodka production.
