Review: Skyy Infusions Coastal Cranberry Vodka

SKYY_COASTALCRANBERRY_750ML_RGBCranberry flavor is one of the simplest mixers to add to anything — cranberry juice doesn’t even have to be refrigerated when you buy it — so why both adding it to a vodka as a flavoring agent?

The increasingly vast Skyy Infusions lineup now includes this flavor — not just regular cranberry, Coastal Cranberry — so let’s see how it fares.

The nose is quite fragrant — not particularly cranberry in nature, but closer to a mix of Maraschino cherry, orange juice, and cane sugar. The palate is plenty tart — somewhere in the neighborhood of cherry and cranberry cocktail — but it’s doctored with enough sugar to temper the incredible sourness of the cranberry flavors within. (If you’ve had pure, unsweetened cranberry juice you know what I’m talking about.)

On the whole this vodka impressed me more than I expected. That’s not saying a lot, but there’s enough of a cran-something kick here to merit at least a raised eyebrow or two. What to do with it? Put it in your cosmo, of course. Is anyone still drinking those? Page me.

70 proof.
