Kinky liqueur review

A couple weekends ago, I was at Sam’s Club getting some of my usual grocery items, and I saw this ridiculously bright, hot pink endcap in the beer, wine, and liquor section. It was advertising a type of flavoured vodka called Kinky, produced by Crosby Lake Spirit Company. The vibrant pink colour is definitely attention-getting, and at the price for which it was on sale, I decided it was worth a try.

As a cordial, I thought that it was interesting that they recommended drinking it chilled and straight. It is essentially a vodka drink (that they claim is “super premium” vodka, but I don’t believe that at all) with infusions of mango, blood orange, and passion fruit. Sounded a bit fruity for my liking, and it turned out that it was. It was very sweet, and the taste of the blood orange overpowered the other flavours of the drink. However, I only tried a small bit of it, and tried it straight. It may prove to be better mixed with other liquors, or as a splash in a creative martini. Overall, though, I can’t say that I was very impressed with the cocktail, but if you like fruitier drinks, you may like it. Always worth a shot (pun intended).

Cheers,
Zach

  1. As far as I can tell, this is a low-price knock-off of X-Rated, which has a similar flavor profile to Hpnotiq (but pink instead of blue). I am still trying to figure out the relation to Passoa, a much more syrupy, Hawaiian-Punchy beverage.

    You probably don’t want to drink any of these alone, but a 1/2-oz or less in a margarita, for ex, has a nice tropical swing.
