We are all for wild experimentation and crazy concoctions. We revel in the thought of creating drinks that push the boundaries, and make us rethink what we thought we knew about our likes, dislikes, our preferences and ourselves. However, there are some occasions when the liquor companies take it too far. Rachel Sanders from over at Buzzfeed has created a list of “22 Flavored Liquors That Will Make You Angry”. We couldn’t agree more. There are some gems on the list like Swedish Fish-Flavored Vodka, Black Cherry-Flavored Whiskey, and PB & J flavored Vodka that no one in their right mind would ever want to have anywhere near their mouths. There are a couple that aren’t even legitimate flavors – like Electricity-Flavored Vodka, and Purple-Flavored Vodka. One way they could avoid these unfortunate accidents is to hire a guy to just sit in a room and say the name 20 times. If it sounds wrong, it probably is. You try it; say Bubble Gum Vodka twenty times and see if you want to taste it.
The “22 Flavored Liquors That Will Make You Angry” list seems to be dominated by a whole range of vodkas that have been given Dessert flavorings like cupcakes, wedding cakes, whipped cream, and froot loops. We agree that vodka is a versatile liquor and pairs well with any number of flavors, but these are a little too hard to digest. Head on over to the website and check out the list in its entirety.
