Today’s Portland Daily Sun takes a look at vodka infusions. Columnist Natalie Ladd met with bartender John Meyers to understand the background and logic behind flavored vodkas.
My Take … When done with style and thoughtfulness, vodka infusions are a win-win for all. Flavored vodkas are now found in the well, and while trendy infusions (lima bean and ham hock) have seen better days, they have made their lasting mark on cocktail menus and drink order decision making. Take it from a Cosmopolitan drinker who’s switched from The Classic to Absolute Citron. The subtle lemon-orange infused flavor makes all the difference in the world.
