Absolut Vodka Vanilla

The Brand

Absolut is the second biggest selling brand of vodka in the world behind Smirnoff selling around 25 million cases per year.

It is no coincidence that Absolut is another brand that goes in for flavour variety in a big way. In fact it was Absolut that really kicked off with the gimmick, marketing led flavours before Smirnoff properly got involved (although they have certainly made up for lost time).

 

The Absolut brand is a long-serving one having initially been established in 1879 using a new distilling process of the time called rectification to produce an ‘absolutely’ clear, pure vodka. The vodka is made in the town of Ahus in Sweden and uses locally grown wheat and water in the process.

The Taste

Absolut is a middle of the road vodka that does have a fair few hard core followers that swear by it over, for example, Smirnoff. Some of the flavours I can definitely vouch for as being popular with drinkers and useful in cocktails, namely Absolut Raspberry (a winner with lemonade) and Absolut Vanilla (very versatile and useful addition to the Mixology table).

  • Two Chocolate Martini's + Rims

    Chocolate Orange Martini and Chocolatini

    Pure boozy, chocolaty indulgence; these chocolate martin's should be sipped not gulped, especially seeing as they are both alcohol, alcohol mixed with alcohol!

     
  • Flirtini

    This flirtatious cocktail adds a bubbly, pineapple twist to a Cosmopolitan. If you are feeling frugal switch the champagne for a Prosecco (arguably a more palatable fizz at a fraction of the cost).

     
  • Vampire's Kiss

    A Vampire's Kiss cocktail is a must for any ghoulish gathering!  The bright red drink combined with the extremely effective dripping, red rim really looks the part and tastes pretty good too.

     
  • Vodka Summer Slush

    Vodka Summer Slush

    A strawberry summer slush is the perfect concoction to chill you out in the heat of the sun whilst relaxing on a beach somewhere exotic!  Or if you don't happen to be sunning yourself in a picture perfect, sun-drenched location then you can enjoy the drink whilst daydreaming about your next jaunt!

     
  • Spiced Bellini

    Spiced Bellini

    The perfect drink to soften the blow of autumn onset. This is a sweet twist on a classic drink with a mild poke of spice.

     
  • Sex on the Beach

    It’s a classic that has caused a zillion number of smirks, giggles or outright fits of laughter when ordered at any bar on the planet and if you don’t find it vaguely amusing then you must be lacking a sense of humour! It is a simple enough cocktail consisting of just 2 spirits and a bit of juice but sometimes simplicity is needed in life and indulging in good old sex on the beach is what’s required! Tee. Hee. Hee.

    The distinguishing feature of Blavod vodka is that it is black. It isn’t unique in its blackness as there are now a few copycats but it is definitely the most well-known brand of black vodka and claims to be the only ‘premium black vodka on the market’.

    How to Make Vodka

    Vodka is a neutral spirit that tends not to have a distinctive flavour or taste in its untampered form. Vodka is generally not aged and can be made using a range of accessible materials and ingredients such as potatoes, grains, sugars, fruit and most things that are capable of being fermented. This makes it a spirit that is easy to produce in a relatively short space of time.
