Drink It Tuesday: Voli Vodka and Recipes

DSC_0606

About a week ago, I had the opportunity to try Voli Vodkas for the first time, introduced to me at Noelle Reno’s Estate Jewelry sale at Blue and Cream. I wanted to learn more about Voli, which was founded in 2008 and is originally based in Miami, and try additional vodka flavors. I was graciously sent six samples of Voli Vodka: Original, Lemon, Orange Vanilla, Raspberry Cocoa, Espresso Vanilla, and Mango Coconut. I was very impressed with how quickly I received the samples, as I was eager to try each of the flavors.

Upon receiving the samples, my husband and I immediately placed each bottle in the freezer. We definitely feel that vodka is best enjoyed ice cold, over ice. Before opening a few of the bottles, we tested one another to see if we could choose which flavor it is, then deciding which flavor was or favorite after each random taste test.

My favorite vodka flavor was the raspberry cocoa and my husband’s favorite was the Mango Coconut, which was also top on my list. The Mango Coconut was “a bit of paradise in a bottle” and the raspberry cocoa was a sultry blend of sweet cocoa and raspberry, just as tempting as your favorite raspberry chocolate truffle. The flavor notes are mixed very well, and each flavor was magnificent on the rocks.

We finished the bottles within a few days and enjoyed the vodkas as our before or after dinner beverages. The flavor notes had a divine smell, especially the lemon and the espresso. The smell of the espresso instantly reminded me of an espresso shot. I loved the flavor vodkas especially since I prefer to drink vodka without mixers on the rocks, though the original flavor is perfect for mixed drinks or to add to freshly squeezed orange juice for your favorite Screwdriver.
