Making a Bloody Mary from scratch is hard… Especially when we’re on number six or seven, or trying to make one as our morning remedy.
Keeping the party going, or self-medicating the morning after, has never been more stylish.
Flavored vodka started innocently enough with lemon and orange. But lemon and orange begat vanilla, blueberry, and peach. Then, the trend of flavored vodkas descended into madness, leaving a path of destruction littered with clear liquids that tasted like cupcakes and waffles.
Nevertheless, since flavored vodkas have provided so much joy in the form of blog material — Foodiggity would like to pay it forward with a few flavor suggestions of our own. And, based on current food trends, these suggestions might even act as an accurate looking glass into vodka’s already doomed future. Please drink this in responsibly.
At the time of this writing, there is no other food item on the planet with a more rabid fan base than Sriracha. So, it only makes sense that the flavored vodka people find a way to make cock-vodka happen. Pair it with: Anything… Just like actual Sriracha.
Carnival grub on-the-go gets a much needed upgrade. Deep-fried corn batter with notes of salty tubed meat — now with the bonus sting of 40% alcohol. Pair it with: Ketchup and mustard chasers.
We’re not sure what flavor Circus Peanuts are supposed to be, and we don’t care. Make the vodka neon orange with a clown on the bottle, and we’re in. Pair it with: Shame.
Nutella should be placed on everything. So, if there’s going to be any new vodkas, Nutella needs to be involved. It might not be the best choice for breakfast, but then again, neither is Nutella. Pair it with: Cereal, eggs, toast, or anything to help remind you that it’s still morning.
Raw fish and alcohol go great together. What’s this ‘saki’ you speak of? Well that had a good run, because sushi vodka is inevitable. You can even serve it warm, we don’t care. Pair it with: Shots of soy and miso.
Sure, we could buy separate Bloody Mary mix, but that just sounds like a lot of work. Get vodka that’s already flavored like spicy tomato juice. If necessary, throw in a cheeseburger for an extreme version. Pair it with: Celery, a cheeseburger, sriracha vodka.
So there you have it, folks. What are some other flavored vodkas you’d like to see become a reality? And, would you drink any of the fictional flavored vodkas seen above?
