In an ice-filled Collins glass, combine Vodskey and fruit juices. Top with coriander and cranberry bitters, and agitate gently to create the ombre color effect.  Mist with atomized coriander bitters, if desired.

Copperwing Distillery is a neighborhood craft distillery in St. Louis Park, MN.  As of April 2017 light whiskey, vodka, and vodskey are served in the cocktail room.
