Last night there was an earthquake and when I went to duck under my desk, I made sure to bring my cocktail with me.
I was given the chance to try Vita Frute Cocktails through a Klout Perk. Normally my spirits of choice are all brown and a part of the same family; Whiskey, Scotch, and Bourbon. But I’m not one to say no to trying new things. An Acai Spirit, I thought it would be similar to Vodka. I’m also not usually a Vodka drinker, but over the past year Mules have grown on me. As I really don’t care for sugary sweet drinks, I wanted to dilute the Vita Frute pre-made cocktails. Being Mule-inspired I purchased a really good ginger beer to mix with it, Maine Root Ginger Brew.
So without further ado, the Berry Ginger Cosmopolitan
A Few sliced strawberries,
Some good ginger beer ( or ginger aid) poured over ice
Finish with Vita Frute Cosmopolitan on top.
The drink was good, not trendy restaurant-worthy, but drinkable. Though honestly the Vita Frute tasted syrupy to me, and reminded me of something I would drink when I was 18 and my friends didn’t have whiskey. I still have the Lemonade flavor to try, and I’m thinking I’ll make a blackberry ginger lemonade cocktail. The jury is still out whether I would purchase this again, maybe for a party to provide different options. Although the ginger brew I bought had a very strong distinct flavor, and could have taken away from the potential brilliance of my cocktail. It wouldn’t be my go-to spirit, but I think girls that do love sugary drinks and pay attention to calories when drinking would enjoy this.
Purchasing my Vita Frute was an adventure in itself, read about my Frute time at WeHo Pavilions.
