Caffeinated Vodkas: Zygo vs P.I.N.K.
There are times when you wish you didn't have to have an opinion. Like when your significant other asks if you like their new haircut and you don't want to say it looks like their scalp threw up. Or when your boss asks what you think of his power tie and you don't want to tell him the paisley looks like an evil petri dish. But sometimes you need to just sound off like you've got a pair about a particular issue.
Like, for example, when you have two different caffeinated vodkas and you give them booth good reviews. After you post them people start asking questions like "OK, so which one do you like better?" At first you don't think it's right to answer because every liquor is special in its own special way. But then you start thinking and you say hey, it's time to get your sack out of your purse and tell people what you think. So, in honor of clearing the air, we've set up a nice little chart below laying out each, and our overall verdict of which one we like better.
Expect a few more of these in coming weeks, especially on the burning issue of two particular Cachacas people are wondering about.
||FuelChange.com; formerly at EnergyVodka.com until the government made them shut it down
||Point: Tie - We gave them both favorable notes
||80 Proof (40% ABV)
||70 Proof (35% ABV)
||Caffeine, Yerba Mate, Guarana, Taurine and D-Ribose
||Straight up vodka
||Peach, Mandarin Orange, Vanilla
||Point: Zygo - Tough call but we burned through our Zygo in less than a week and we've still got half a bottle of P.I.N.K.
||Aimed at the Sex and the City set
||Aim to be peach-flavored revolutionaries
||Between the frou frou marketing and the higher price tag, we're not the target demo
||Viva la Revolucion!
||Point: Zygo wins by a landslide
