Happy Friday cocktail lovers! I am back this week with the ready-to-drink *vodka* cocktails from Brody's. If you missed it, last week was my first experience with Brody's and I tried their rum Air Mail cocktail which I loved! So I'm excited to be moving on to the vodka cocktails this week and then I'll be back next week with two gin cocktails from their line.
This week is all about the vodka and Brody's has two vodka based cocktails a Mint Mule and a Black Orchid. I'm sure I'm going to love the mule but I have no idea what to expect from the Black Orchid. One of the ingredients in the Black Orchid cocktail is violet and I'm pretty sure that is not a flavor I've had before so I'm interested to see if I can taste it / what it tastes like.
As I mentioned last week, all of the cocktails from Brody's are made to either drink straight OR you can mix them equal parts with champagne for a different take. I did remember to pick up champagne this week so I will be try that. Also, I would just like to state for the record, I did in fact get carded for my champagne. I'm 40 - and I still got it! LOL I always find that so funny because often times the person who asked fo my ID is then kind of embarrassed. 😜
As usual, I dressed up my Brody's cocktails with some lemon garnish and some Swizzly Sticks. This week I used one of the custom ones I made for Brody's plus a few Cheers Swizzly Sticks from my line. And now we are ready to sip!
Here is my official review of Brody's ready-to-drink vodka cocktails:
One shaker = not sweet at all // Five shakers = your teeth may curl
Neither one of these Brody's cocktails are sweet. If anything they are closer to the bitter end from that botanical flavor.
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos
The Brody's Black Orchid vodka cocktail officially ring in at 16% ABV. The Mint Mule is 25%. So these are pretty darn boozy but honestly, they are so well done that I did not taste even a hint of booze - which is awesome and so dangerous at the same time! Both of these Brody's cocktails have the perfect amount of booziness in my book.
Would I buy this ready to drink cocktail again?
I'm on the fence about the Brody's vodka cocktails. I will definitely be sharing them with my friends this weekend to get their take. Either way, I know I love the rum Air Mail so that is on my shopping list already and I'm pumped to try the gin cocktails next week.
If you want to order any of the Brody's cocktails you can do that online on their website here: https://shop.drinkbrodys.com/
