D*ck Sucker (Tipsy Bartender)

LOL. Well, I guess since there are drinks called the Red Headed Slut and Blonde Headed Slut, you might as well have this one on deck. That blue does look nice in the drink, though!

Sweet Bunny Vodka (Torani)

Sweet but well-put together!

3/4 lime juice
1/2 oz Torani Almond (Orgeat) Syrup
4 dashes Allspice bitters
¼ oz rum
Lime and cherry flag for garnish

3-4 Dashes of Angostura Bitters

Wu-Tang Clan Celebrates 25th Anniversary with Wu-Tang Vodka

The past few years have seen a lot of 20-25 year anniversaries. It just goes to show that the longevity of Hip-Hop is becoming more of a mainstay than a far cry from the typical "here today, gone tomorrow" mentality of yesteryear.

Here is a flyer of the upcoming launch of the product in Australia.

Along with the vodka launch, they have a number of flavored liqueurs already available, which include strawberry lime, butterscotch, and C.R.E.A.M (named after one of their early breakout songs). The vodka will certain have a higher price point due to the exclusivity and super premium taste to the vodka. There's no telling if this will hit stateside just yet.
