Absolut vodka

We picked up a six pack of mini bottles of Absolut Vodka Citron, Mandrin, Acai, Raspberri and Ruby Red flavors.

The Absolut Raspberri vodka is clearly raspberry just from the aroma—but it's that artificial raspberry flavoring that always reminds me of hairspray, and yes, it's like that in flavor, too. Neither of us got past the first sip; it was vile. I'd want to be paid, and paid well and in advance, to drink this. It's a horrible evil thing to do to something with such fabulous potential for flavor like a raspberry.
