Be Your Best Mom recently was given an opportunity to host a tasting party for Exclusiv Vodka. We were given bottles of Raspberry, Orange, Coconut and original Exclusiv Vodka to try. We also had the chance to try Exclusiv Rose Moscato. So, I’m going to fill you in on what we thought about these products. First I set up a tasting station and added a variety of mixers and small glasses so people could sample the vodka both plain and mixed into their favorite cocktail. About five days ahead of the party I marinated a bowl of gummy bears in vodka for a fun twist. Click HERE for the recipe.
Okay, so for mixers we had a chocolate martini mix, pineapple juice, orange juice, V8 Tropical juice blend, cranberry juice, lemonade, and tonic water. The tasting crew consisted of 8 moms and my hubby. ( He tasted the next day!) Here are the results of the Exclusiv Vodka tasting:
1. Exclusiv Coconut Vodka: This was the group favorite by far. It was also the most drunk vodka of the evening. It was smooth and tasty on it’s own. It was most popular in the chocolate martini with a splash of milk. It was also quite good and real “beachy” mixed with the Tropical V8 blend. Voted a must buy from the group.
2. Exclusiv Raspberry Vodka: This was least popular with the group. It was not as smooth on the way down, as the others. Another complaint was that it did not have a strong raspberry taste. That is what was expected. One tester loved this flavor and sipped it with some lemon-lime soda. I drank it this way as well and found it quite pleasurable.
3. Exclusiv Orange Vodka: This was the second favorite vodka the group tried. It was smooth and filled with notes of citrus. I enjoyed this drink with lemonade and a slice of lemon. It also was fun with pineapple juice. This met group approval.
4. Exclusiv Vodka: The group seemed more interested in trying the flavors, although they did sip some of the original so they could give an opinion. According to the group consensus, this is a product they would buy. It is very affordable, as well as, smooth and clean tasting. You could buy this to cook with, but drink it as well.
We moved on to try the Exclusiv Rose Moscato that I had chilling in the other room around the snack tables. We popped the cork and toasted to Exclusiv for letting us try all their fantastic products. Here are the thoughts on the Moscato. The dominant opinion was that it was a bit sweeter than these ladies like, but good. I admit that it is sweeter than I would like as well. Although, the husband and I enjoyed the leftovers in a Mimosa the next day and it was extremely delicious! A great choice for a yummy brunch!
Thank you very much to Exclusiv for providing us with beverages for our ladies night! It was a big hit! Also a big thank you to all the ladies that came out and voiced their opinions on this particular line of products. For more information on Exclusiv Vodka checkout their website HERE or on Facebook.
