There are so many crappy ridiculous vodka flavors out there (whipped cream, cake, chocolat razberi… oy), but I was actually eager to try Cathead Vodka’s new honeysuckle vodka. They’re from Mississippi and make a solid regular vodka. But this? Yow. Not good. Anyone else out there plan on trying it? Very curious to see who actually likes the product - it’s the very first spirit I’ve given the rating of “avoid” to (even the strangely nasty SoCo Pepper (w Tabasco) earned a notch above that!).
Flavored vodkas go back a long way - pepper, buffalo grass, aquavit, gin . . .
That siad, the recent wave is disgusting. That goodness it wasn’t cat head flavored
Let me say… I rarely drink vodka (order of preference: rye, bourbon, Scotch, TN whiskey, old tom gin, gin, about ten other things, vodka). I even more rarely (if ever) drink flavored vodkas. But, being a good Southern boy, I was hoping Cathead Honeysuckle Vodka would be good.
Vodka sucks. Nearly useless.
But for Bloody Marys, entirely useless.
Couldn’t agree more.
This can’t be good right?
I get nauseated just thinking about drinking this ^ “cocktail.”
That and some Creme de Cacao, and you have a reese’s cup!
Uh, Linda, I think Michael was referring to the phonetic sound of the name…
Vodka martinis on Friday afternoons rock
Martinis are made with Gin you heathen,
He said vodka martini, so that is acceptable. I think a dirty vodka martini ice cold can be pretty nice. Also, a properly made lemon drop martini can be nice. I don’t understand why you’d use flavored vodka for anything. Is it that hard to buy a piece of fruit?
A martini is made with gin, vermouth, and orange bitters (optional). Olive(s) or lemon twist garnish. Nothing more, nothing less.
Vodka in a martini glass is no more a martini than Burgundy served in a Bordeaux glass is Bordeaux!
I once nearly broke my TV by throwing a beer bottle at it as Andrea Immer made what our grandmothers would have called a Grasshopper (with Creme de Menthe and heavy cream!), poured it into an up glass and pronounced it to be a “Mint-tini!”…
You forgot the white creme de cacao.
Pie crusts. It’s good for pie crusts.
Do people actually drink the stuff?
