Blue Whip


May 17, 2011 (Day 50) — Blue Whip

Okay, we’re heading into day two with the Burnett’s Orange Cream vodka. Despite our initial reservations, it turns out that while not something you’d sip neat, it’s definitely a solid addition to a mixologist’s flavored vodka repertoire. And it’s affordable, so that means you can keep the party hopping without busting the bank as you tear through bottle after bottle of this stuff. We think you will be.

Responsibility!

Tonight’s drink is a bit heavy on the orange, because if we pretend it contains Vitamin C, then by default it’s good for us right?

Right!

Blue Whip

  • 2 oz Burnett’s Orange Cream Vodka
  • 1.5 oz blue curacao

Combine the ingredients in a rocks glass filled with ice.

Very orange, but also almost overpoweringly sweet. Heavy, with an almost syrupy taste on the end. Not balanced enough. A quick dash of some lime juice and some club soda lightened it up perfectly, though!

Cheers!
