I have the Smirnoff's Marshmallow vodka. My nephew bought it for me for Christmas and it is really good in hot chocolate!

I bought a bottle of the Bakon vodka. Made a pretty amazing Bloody Mary. Couldn't find much else to do with it.

@ Bake Chef,

That sounds wonderful !

@ Kleenex and Jennyema,

Truly Interesting post and ways in which to use a variety of Vodkas.

@ QMax,

A great bloody mary is always lovely with brunch !


Thanks.

I've started to get into using interesting bitters and so am infusing my own vodka to make up interesting summer drinks.

I'm not a huge fan of most pre-flavored vodkas, especially Stoli, as it tastes so artificial. I do have a taste for Absolute Ruby Red, though.

I'm also going to infuse some gin, even though it is, obviously, already infused.

@ Jennyema,

We had some lovely mint gin & tonics last weekend ...

I prefer Swedish Vodkas too ...

Rums can also work with tropical fruit fragrances ...

Good luck and keep us posted.

Sounds fascinating ...

Have nice evening.
Margi.

In retrospect, the Bakon would probably work well in a pasta sauce. but I didn't try that.

The cucumber sounds good and the rose one intriguing. I have had the pepper one and did not like it at all. I could see where it may be good in a Bloody Mary but I don't care for them.
