It Just Got Kinky in Here

Okay, that’s not entirely grammatically correct. Perhaps it should read: “We just received a shipment of brand-new Kinky Liqueur here at Amity Wines in New Haven, CT.” Same thing, right?

I’m not going to lie- I was pretty excited to try this. And not just because it’s Kinky (well, partly) but also because I am a woman, and the packaging for this is spot-on. I could immediately picture it as a perfect Bridal Shower gift, in a gift box with something lacy and/or see through. The pinkish color just looks delicious, and the description on the bottle had me immediately sold: “A naughty fusion of super premium vodka distilled 5 times with succulent mango, blood orange liqueur and passion fruit.” Um, Kinky? You had me at ‘naughty.'”

The powers that be wanted me to write up this brand new liqueur in an effort to spread the word of its awesomeness. I, being the ethical blogger that I am, insisted on trying the product first, in order to give a truthful review. Hey- it’s tough work, but someone has to do it.

The unofficial review:  Holy moly this is tasty!

The official review:  The bottle gives me three ways to drink this. “Enjoy over ice, with lemon lime soda or in your favorite kinky cocktail.” Let’s go in order, shall we?.

1.  Over ice. It’s 17% alcohol, so I figured it would be sip-able. I was right. It’s Kinky when it hits your lips. The first sip conjured up sweet, sweet fruit with a solid grapefruit finish. I puckered up a little from the blood orange liqueur, but the tartness was smoothed away by the mango flavor. This would be absolutely delightful to drink while laying out by the pool.

2.  With lemon lime soda. Easy enough. I grabbed a Sprite and mixed it up. WOW. All of the intense, super sweet puckering was gone, and what was left with a bubbly, effervescent mixed drink with absolutely no alcohol burn. I could (but didn’t, I promise) sip this all. day. long. For the drinking novice who has a fear of the good stuff, start them here. They literally won’t know what hit them.

3.  In my favorite kinky cocktail. Well, not to be boring, but I tend to order the good old vodka & cranberry when I go out. This was a match made in Heaven. Heaven, I say! You take a puckery juice like Cranberry and mix it up with a puckery liqueur like Kinky, and somehow the puckers cancel each other out. It’s like a double negative of tart. Either way, it’s amazing. Smooth, refreshing and almost dessert enough. Almost.

No matter what you do with it, I promise you will enjoy Kinky. Buy some for yourself, buy some for a friend, send a hint to your crush- whatever. You work hard all day and then come home to make dinner and amuse your family.

Tonight, put the kids to bed and get Kinky. You deserve it.
