Chile-flavored vodka is usually described as usable just for Bloody Mary cocktails. And that’s mainly one thing I agree with. What else have I ever used pepper-infused vodka for?
St. George’s expression of pepper vodka isn’t shy. Infused with California jalapenos, habaneros, serranos, and bell peppers, there is no such thing as a scarcity of capsaicin to go round on this spirit. The excellent news: It positively gained’t kill you with fireplace. The nostril has that brightly natural serrano/inexperienced pepper be aware — like a recent, crisp pepper pulled straight from the earth. Identical story on the palate: Plenty of spicy-bitter inexperienced pepper mingled with recent jalapeno, the peppery chew of a (delicate) serrano, and a spicy however bitter-herbal — although surprisingly refreshing — high quality on the end. It’s warming however by no means actually “sizzling,” arguably touchdown because the least chilified chile vodka I’ve encountered ever.
This can be a easy product, though it’s decidedly well-made, showcasing the whole lot it says it should save for the habanero, which by no means actually makes its anticipated, mouth-searing introduction. Mainly, although, I’m nice with that.
