Christmas Countdown: win ABSOLUT MODE

I always love seeing what ABSOLUT Vodka unveil each Christmas, as they always have some serious fabulous seasonal gift packs on offer. They are usually bearing all manner of ultra luxe accoutrements, as well as looking like serious works of art.
The latest innovation, ABSOLUT MODE EDITION definitely doesn’t disappoint - a new limited edition 700ml gift pack that is a redesign of the iconic ABSOLUT Vodka bottle. This latest design reflects the world of fashion – only fitting when the brand has worked with the likes of Tom Ford and Stella McCartney - with the use of stylised crystallic glass and a midnight blue textured silk cloth feature.
Not only is it fashionable in aesthetic, but also in name, with the Swedish translation of ‘MODE’ meaning ‘fashion’ in the homeland of ABSOLUT – Sweden.
To celebrate the launch of ABSOLUT MODE EDITION, leading New Zealand mixologist Chris Harrop has created the ABSOLUT MODE cocktail, which sounds like my kind of tipple once summer finally arrives:

45ml ABSOLUT Vodka
20ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
10ml elderflower cordial
Top with soda
Build ingredients over ice in a tall glass, and garnish with a thin cucumber slice.

And... I have a bottle of ABSOLUT MODE EDITION to give away. To enter, email me at and tell me what the Swedish word for fashion is… You must be 18 or over to enter.
