We recently got our hands on a bottle of Sobieski Vodka, a premium vodka from Poland. Made from Golden Dankowski rye and named after a Polish king, this is real deal. In fact, Sobieski is the best-selling premium vodka in Poland.

And they know their vodka in Poland. It is said to be the birth place of vodka, though, of course, this claim is contested by others.

They also know in Poland that good vodka … Read more

Kahlúa Mocha Liqueur Review

I just got my hands on a bottle of the newest flavor from Kahlúa, Mocha. How did they not think of this until now?

What have we been missing? Chocolatey goodness combined with the rich coffee flavor of Kahlúa, that’s what. The chocolate flavor overwhelms the nose (in a good way) when taking in the liqueur with very of the bitterness of the alcohol.

The chocolate once again comes through strong upon tasting with just … Read more

Sponsor Spotlight – Caravella Limoncello

Caravella is a premium limoncello, a lemon infused liqueur from Italy. People familiar with limoncello are likely to have first tasted it as a digestivo, served ice-cold, perhaps at an Italian restaurant. Owing to its history as an after-dinner digestivo, limoncello is typically not thought of as an ingredient in cocktails recipes. Caravella aims to change that.

Limoncello is a very social spirit, with a strong affinity for togetherness and bonding the warm feelings of … Read more

Remy Martin recently partnered with artist David LaChapelle to create
a limited-edition VSOP bottle that unleashed the youthful energy of Remy Martin VSOP. Remy also asked LaChapelle to draw on the cognac’s origins, the cabaret scene at Parisian nightclubs during the Jazz Age.

Stoli Blackberi Review

One of the many product we had the pleasure to try in Vegas is Stoli’s newest flavor, Blackberi. I don’t think it is available yet, but trust me it will be worth the wait. I tried it over ice with soda, a what a delightful twist to straight vodka. As with many other Stoli flavors, the blackberry flavor does not over power or taste too sweet. It is almost an essence of the fruit.

I … Read more

Pinky Vodka Review

Pinky is a new vodka from Sweden. Made by master wine tasters, it is a super premium vodka distilled 5 times. Pinky is then blended with 12 botanicals (most notably wild strawberries, rose petals and violets). Each of these botanicals is distilled separately prior to being blended with the vodka. This gives Pinky its namesake hue and vibrant flavor. Unlike other flavored vodkas, the Pinky process yields a ton of flavor but no excess sweetness.… Read more
