X-Rated Vodka and Fusion Liqueur Reviews

There was a time when a company wouldn't dream of marketing a product to the ladies and give it a name like "X-Rated". That time is long gone, however, and we're lucky enough to have two products with that adult name now - both an unflavored vodka and a fruity liqueur.

The question on everyone's lips, however, is - do they live up to their racy name? Let's just say we enjoyed ourselves enough during the tasting to be just this side of, as Borat would say, a "romance explosion".

X-Rated Vodka
80 Proof (40% ABV)
Typical Price: $30
Available at Internet Wines & Spirits
Company Line: "X-RATED® Vodka is Seven Times Distilled & Hand Crafted in French copper alambic stills. With Delicate French Wheat & a Touch of Baies Roses (Roseberry Grain), X-RATED® Vodka creates a charismatic cocktail." via X-Rated
Our Thoughts: We first tried X-Rated Vodka chilled, and we have to say it was quite tasty. It was light and floral on both nose and tongue, and we even noticed a slight vanilla taste as we sipped. It made great drinks, and we liked it on the rocks as well, though that's not how they really intend you to drink it. This stuff is genetically predisposed toward making Cosmos, and it fits its role well.

X-Rated Fusion Liqueur
34 Proof (17% ABV)
Typical Price: $25
Available at Internet Wines & Spirits
Company Line: "X-RATED® Fusion Liqueur® is an Exotic Fusion of Ultra Premium French Vodka & Blood Oranges from Provence in France, Mingling with Mango and Passion Fruit from Brazil. It is the first and only Fusion Liqueur and the 100% pure organic fruit juices and Ultra Premium French Vodka are fused in a secret process. Drinking Pink is fun and delicious!" via X-Rated
Our Thoughts: We liked the vodka, but in our opinion the liqueur is the one that really shakes its moneymaker. Sweet and tart without being syrupy or cloying, we fell hard for the fusion liqueur. We found ourselves making every drink we could think of with it, from Cosmos to Margaritas, and it added a real sense of liveliness to all the drinks it touched. This is a drink to fall in love with, and definitely worth trying for folks who are looking to stray from the Hpnotiq blues and into something a little...pinker.

The Verdict: While we liked both of these products a lot, it was the X-Rated Fusion Liqueur that came out on top in our esteem. The name is risque, but going X-Rated for a night with the girls or to romance your lady, is well worth the risk.

Talking about a new cocktail in the Market, there is a new ready-to-serve martini drink called Metropolitan Martini. The drink I think is also one that can make a party really fun. They have a website http://www.mystiquebrands.com/, I know that they have 4 flavors but I have only tried one. I thought maybe you can check it out and see how you like it. The drink is great for the younger party-goers.
Cheers.
