Review: Skyy Infusions Dragon Fruit Vodka

Review: Skyy Infusions Dragon Fruit Vodka

Skyy’s latest infused vodka is really reaching deep into the produce aisle: Dragon fruit is the flavor of the day.

I am unsure if, outside of playing Fruit Ninja, I’ve ever consumed a dragon fruit, so it’s hard to say how authentic this flavored vodka is. Skyy notes it is also known as the “strawberry pear,” and those seem like apt descriptors. The vodka is naturally flavored with actual dragon fruit, according to the company.

Skyy Dragon Fruit is quite sweet and strawberry is indeed the overwhelming characteristic. Cherry is pretty hefty here, too, giving the vodka a bit of a medicinal tone, but at least it’s not overwhelming. The finish is surprisingly rough for a 70-proof vodka, leaving a bitter taste in the mouth. That doesn’t really balance the sweetness, though: The two are quite at odds with each other as they squabble for dominance.

Probably a great vodka for a punch or a novelty drink (“Dragon martinis all around!”), but not Skyy’s best infusion. (That’d be Passion Fruit.)

70 proof.

    Dragonfruit is basically an overgrown, bland kiwi.
    Overpriced as well.
