Blue Ice American Potato Vodka Tasting Notes
Light on the nose with the faintest hint of alcohol odor.
There is quite a bit of burn when tasted neat. This is to be expected with straight liquor. It is warming in the throat. A blank slate flavor-wise. There is lushness in its viscosity.
I’ve sipped this vodka in a straight up Martini and also in a Martini with half gin, half vodka. It is delightful in both straight style drinks. Clean without residual flavor.
Dream Weaver Drink Recipe
Enjoy Blue Ice Vodka in the Dream Weaver recipe which includes cucumber and Chartreuse. This recipe was inspired by a gin drink served many years ago at Cheesecake Factory. It was a favorite of mine. Unfortunately they stopped serving it since it wasn’t as popular as other drinks on the menu. The bartender at the time said most people were afraid to try it due to the Chartreuse. But let me tell you, that was one damn delicious cocktail. Hopefully you will enjoy this version just as well.
