The latest in Absolut’s City Series, Absolut Los Angeles is a vodka infused with the flavors of açai, acerola, pomegranate and blueberry. In a continuation of both the city series and their Global Cooling campaign, Absolut is donating $250,000 to Green Way LA, a group dedicated to improving urban life.
I am not a huge fan of flavored vodkas, but this one is wonderful. The nose is fruity and sweet, but not too sugary. You can really smell the bouquet of berries. You’s be hard pressed to tell it contains alcohol.
On the tongue, Absolut LA is smooth with a hint of fruity goodness. It contains no harshness and goes down great on the rocks.
At about $20, Absolut Los Angeles is a nice break from the ordinary, and it’s got antioxidants!
