Pink Lucozade zero.  Lovely, but possibly a bit girly? 😂

It's a thread about reducing calorie intake. I don't think "too girly" will be an issue Smiley

Whatís the protocol when drinking flavoured vodka/gin?

Iíve been given a bottle of pear vodka. Does adding a mixer completely overpower the pear taste? Is it usually drunk neat with ice?

I'd drink it with a slimline tonic

I'd take that with crushed ice and soda, in a highball with sugar dust around the rim (oo-er). A wedge of pear pierced with a clove to garnish. Rest the clove end of the pear in the beverage and possibly drop a cardamom pod in, to suck on after. Much better than an olive for lasting infusion.

Or if that's too "girly". Ignore the rest and follow the first eight words. I'm a fan of a good Tom Collins myself. Except I garnish with Pear instead of orange.

Also it's preferential, some prefer the balance the bitter in tonic brings against the sweeter pear with vodka. if tonic is a must then definitely add sugar dust and those very brief sweet hits on every sip will open to a mellowed and bitter-but-smooth pearyness.

Enjoy.

Iím sipping one right now. Tried it neat over ice but is really nice with a small amount of tonic.

I went for soda and lemon juice eventually (for gin)

I think I prefer it to tonic.

I like it firm and fruity.

Same FH. I prefer the more neutral element of Soda than tonic for most two part cocktails.

Question is, what's your ratio?
