Pinnacle Coconut Vodka Tasting Notes
Aroma: Light coconut with no burn on the nose. Hints of vanilla and creamy coconut.
Taste: There is a little burn when tasted neat. This flavor is sweet with rich coconut flavor. Some coconut vodka and rum contain a lingering “suntan lotion” kind of taste in the mouth. This one does not. There is the tiniest hint of something fresh and herbal. Fresh milkweed comes to mind.
Coconut Lime Gimlet Recipe
This is a simple variation to the classic Gimlet cocktail. The drink balances sweet and tart nicely with light coconut flavor. Using fresh lime wheel for garnish enhances the aroma.
