For anyone who loves experimenting with new recipes, either on the plate or in the glass, there are fewer things more fun than discovering a slew of new cocktails to try out — even better if actor Robert De Niro is attached to them. As a way to celebrate the United States launch of VDKA 6100 (that's read as "vodka," in case you were wondering), which premiered in New York, Connecticut and New Jersey earlier in the month, the brand shared eight recipes that promise a "twist of tomorrow."

Originating in Australia, VDKA 6100 is distilled in New Zealand, designed in New York, and the bottle is sculpted in France. Distilled three times using fresh seasonal whey that's sourced from grass-fed cow's milk and spring water from New Zealand, the vodka is filtered through a bed of carbon, which apparently gives it a smooth finish that is best enjoyed on the rocks.

According to the company, De Niro was "tapped from the beginning for his reputation as a visionary in the hospitality business." We're not quite sure how much involvement he actually has, but we hope the co-creator did more than just lend his name for some attention.

"I'm very proud to be associated with the creative team behind the launch of VDKA 6100. It will be personally rewarding to be a part of its growth," says De Niro.

Check out the below recipes and try VDKA 6100 out for yourself!
