When you think vodka, you don't automatically think "blueberry". But after trying the Van Gogh Acai Blueberry vodka, I was hooked. The color is a vibrant purple. You get the distinct blueberry flavor right up front (and it's delicious). There is a smooth aftertaste from the acai nectar. And speaking of acai. It is a berry that is the newest super fruit. It's levels of antioxidants are through the roof. While I don't know how alcohol affects the antioxidant properties, it personally makes me feel a little better that I'm drinking something considered a "super fruit".
This vodka is versatile too. While drinking it straight is a viable option, I prefer it in a variety of mixed drinks. Mixing the acai blueberry vodka with a lemon-lime soda is yummy, and the tartness from the citrus adds an interesting aspect. There is also a drink that involves the vodka, vanilla vodka, a splash of cream, and a splash of blue curacao. It tastes exactly like blueberry yogurt. And I love blueberry yogurt. There are also martini recipes, and frozen drink options. While it is definitely a distinct flavor, it can be used in many applications.
