Review: Kinky Blue Liqueur

Kinky-Blue-originalBarely a year ago, Kinky, a hot pink Alize knockoff, first crossed our desk. Now, the club-friendly concoction is out with a second version, Kinky Blue. Which is not pink, but blue.

Again, this is technically not a liqueur but a flavored vodka, 5x distilled and flavored with blue things — “tropical and wild berry flavors,” according to the bottle.

The nose, however, is not nearly so distinct. Deep whiffs reveal almost nothing — it could be any berry-flavored vodka… raspberry? Schnozzberry? The body is equally vague. Many a flavored vodka has this same bittersweet note of Kool-Aid powder and tonic water, though few are quite this blue. There is a hint of pineapple on the finish that brings on a touch of interest, but it’s a long way to go for flavors that are done better in other, less silly spirits.

34 proof.

    I really wonder if the taste of windshield washer fluid could be worse than the sickining sweet flavour of this foul beverage.

    I love this vodka! I could drink it alone and I’m not a big fan of vodka. Love the flavor both exotic and flavorful. I do like sweet drinks so keep that in mind. They also sell it in those little airplane bottles so if your looking to try it, I’d get one of those.

    To me this has an almost cotton candy flavor. As someone who has to be goaded or bribed to drink nice wines and who hates alcohol, I could drink this all night. Good stuff, a bit sweet for the adjusted, but that leaves more for me. Yum!

    This drink is actually rather horrible. I’ve tried it twice…and each time, I couldn’t finish it. Very disappointing…
