Mixer & Mingle Fridays : Drinkable desserts

It seems like the newest trend lately in vodkas (and some rums) are sweet, delectable dessert-type flavors.

I remember when 3O Bubble hit the market last year, and sure enough it tasted JUST like BubbleYum. Of course that got a little weird after a few drinks, but it makes a fun cocktail if you simply mix it with Sprite or a good, girly shooter!
 And then Pinnacle came out with Whipped Cream flavored vodka. And it sounded ludacris, but genius at the same time because who doesn't love whipped cream?! And since that was such a big hit they launched Chocolate Whipped, Orange Whipped and Cherry Whipped.


And then Calico Jack rum jumped on board and launched their Whipped Jack Rum. This is probably my favorite sweet-flavored liquor right now!

Pinnacle decided to go the candy route, and introduced Gummy this summer. It truly tastes like a red gummy bear, or Swedish fish (as everyone else says but I've never tried those)

 With all the success, Pinnacle launched Cake vodka, and Three Olives introduced their own Cake vodka shortly after. I have tried both of these, they're really good in Sunkist, Cherry or Strawberry Crush or any sort of fruit juice!

Then, a company who originally produced only wines, Cupcake Winery came out wtih a line of vodka with flavors such as Chiffon, Devil's Food, Frosting and Original. I've only smelled them but they smell yummy!

And now so Stoli came out with a Chocolat Razberi, which I haven't tried yet but can only imagine how tasty that would be! My coworker was just telling me how good it is with Sprite (Sprite is seriously my go-to mixer for anything, it's the perfect bubbly crispness to bring out any vodka flavors!)

Pinnacle really surprised me with their newest flavor, which should be hitting stores soon - Marshmallow. I can only imagine how this would taste with a YooHoo. Yum!

What's your opinion on all these dessert flavors that seem to be the hot trend right now?  Have you tried any of em?? What are your favorite recipes? Just curious. Happy Friday ya'll!

Cheers!

I must try ALL of these, especially the marshmallow one! Yumm! I've become addicted to pinnacle whipped with oj and a lil bit of pineapple juice. A friend of mine is allergic to any type of milk protein and has never had whipped cream before in her life. Well, I contacted pinnacle to make sure it didn't have any whey or caesin in it.. and it didnt. So I was able to make her a 'creamsicle' for the first time in her life. She reponse, "so this is what I've been missing all my life, wow this is GOOD!" lol. It made me so happy!

What a great ideas, marshmallow vodka and yoohoo! All of these dessert flavored alcohol options are amazing, I really wish I was a big drinker and could justify buying them all and throwing myself a tasting party!

It's so funny you mention Three Olives Bubble. This weekend in Boston we wanted to find some cheap booze for our hotel room. Boston prices are a bit more than we see down in FL but the Bubble... oh... the liter was on sale for $20... Hello, bad decisions and blackouts. I always tell myself NOT to buy it but I do and I drink too much because it's candy.

I've never seen the Gummy yet... that might be good. Marshmallow.... tempting!

Allyson and Dave said...

I may have to try a few of these! I think I am only person in the world who does not like whipped cream. It makes me gag...I know, I am weird. But I love all other sweets!

Jax said...

Lately, I have avoided ANY sweet drinks. I dont know what my deal is, but I just havent been able to do them as much. Even margaritas have tasted too sweet for me. Random. I think I got a bad hangover after one too many cocktails and my subconscious is telling me to stick to wine and beer. haha!

Al said...

OK, seriously, where have I been? I think I consumed far too much wine last year and not enough liquor. Whipped Cream?? Nom nom nom...

it is crazy all the flavors out there now! I like the whipped cream vodka but only for a drink or 2. I think most of these are great for one or so fruity cocktail, after that its just too sweet for me!
