Ciroc Pineapple Review

It's been a while since I've done a full liquor review. It took a while but Ciroc has a new flavor called "Ciroc Pineapple" which has been flooding the East Coast since August with the hype. It was recently released around or after Labor Day (depending on your area). I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the product! Let's break down the review.

Flavor: it has a very subtle and sweet Pineapple flavor. I love that it's not overbearing because it would kill the vibe. I still want the vodka presence which is definitely there.

Smoothness: it's extremely smooth to the point where I'm comfortable sipping it neat - without ice. It's seriously one of the liquors that tastes great straight from the bottle even at room temperature.

Mixing ability - to be absolutely honest, this doesn't need much mixing. All you really need is Cranberry Juice (Bay Breeze) and/or Orange Juice to give it a sour bite! You can do both to make it a bad ass kinda madras pineapple mix!

This is def a wild card flavor and I love the vibe it gives you. Coconut is still my favorite one because the cocoloso is just exceptional; however, this is def in my top 3. Overall, I give Ciroc Pineapple an 8.5 out of 10.

Check out Square 1 to Dine and Taste Some Rich Cocktails

Square One isn't just a nice restaurant in Alberta, Canada. It has a unique sense in the food and beverage scene. Often times we do not go to a restaurant solely to get some grub. We want to wind the long week down with a few cocktails and start the weekend on the right foot. A good restaurant takes care in all things even the smallest ingredients. That's why
Square One is not your typical, run of the mill spot. Instead of getting a watered down margarita full of pre-made lime juice or sweet and sour, the ingredients are fresh. The fresher the ingredients, the better the cocktail.

Forget a plain ol' Mai tai with a bunch of crappy mixers. Get real orgeat syrup and a beautiful combination of the right pours to bring out a classy libation. You can always get a beautiful fresh fruit infusion. That will add a bit of kick to your palate. Also, you'll enjoy your beverage soaked in a multitude of fruits. If fresh cocktails are not really your thing, you can always get a nice brew, IPA, or wine to ease in your evening.

Square One is one of those places you need to visit to try quality drinks for a reasonable price. Check out the Facebook page for pictures and even details on different deals.

With a focus on creating fresh juices and syrups and a fun environment, you'll enjoy your cocktail experience to a high level!
