Exclusiv Vodka contacted me recently asking if I'd like a chance to sample their new Exclusiv 6 Rosé Raspberry flavored Vodka with Moscato Rose Wine. And I said that I wasn't interested. Just kidding. I said YES! I loved sampling their Exclusiv 1 and their Moscato Rose Wine. Why in the world would I turn this opportunity down? They just combined two of my favorite things, wine and vodka. I also had the perfect idea for a drink already lined up in my head before it showed up at my doorstep. (The drink probably already exists by another name, but since I don't go out to bars... ever, we're just going to pretend this was my own concoction.) Needless to say this didn't last long. Yummm.
I don't know about you, but when I open up a new bottle of flavored vodka, or any flavored drink really, I give it a good sniff test. As far as I know vodka really shouldn't have much of a scent, so that strong smell of alcohol shouldn't be there. The only thing I want to smell in a flavored vodka drink, is the flavor of the drink.
I get a little giddy when packages like this arrive, so the first thing I did was unbox it, admire the beautiful rose coloring, unscrew the cap, smell it, and then pour myself a drink. I thought at first it might have been a little harsher of a vodka than I normally like, but my senses must have been in over drive due to the excitement. Once a mixer is combined with the vodka, this tastes AMAZING. I haven't quite decided on a name yet for this drink yet that I like to make. When I use fruit punch vodka it becomes the "Oh Yeah!". (Get it?) This might need to be called "Raspberry Wings" or something along those lines. What do you think? Anyway, that's what I'm going to stick with for now.
- 2 Parts Excusiv Rosé
- 2 Parts Red Bull
- 2 Parts Cranberry Juice
What I really love in a drink is something that is sweet and goes down like candy, but after 2 or 3 will really knock you on your tushy. This is definitely one of those mixed drinks that you won't realize the vodka in it is 64 proof. It goes down SMOOTH. And this particular drink ends up tasting like a loaded cranberry juice cocktail.
Exclusiv Vodka is handcrafted and imported from Maldova. The Exclusiv 6 Rose Vodka combines their raspberry vodka and their Moscato Rose wine so you get that great sweet wine flavor as part of the after taste along with that gorgeous pink/red color.
Exclusiv also has regular vodka, lemon, peach, orange, berry, and coconut! (And you can't forget about their Moscato Rose Wine.) The best part, is that this brand is really affordable. You're looking at about $10 per bottle. Don't let the affordability of the product fool you. Exclusiv has received 9 coveted international awards. Niiiiice!
