Special Delivery!

Remember how, last year at BiSC, the good people at Skyy Vodka gave us each a bottle of dragonfruit-infused vodka? Like an honest-to-God FULL SIZE BOTTLE? (I was expecting, like, a minibar size. A sampler. But no. A FULL SIZE BOTTLE.) And remember how I couldn't take it with me on the plane (but fortunately found a good home for it with Simone)? And remember how I was sad? So very sad? Especially afterwards, when everyone was all, "OMG IF YOU MIX THIS WITH JUICE IT'S THE BEST THING SINCE SLICED BREAD THE INTERNET WAS INVENTED!"

This year... not only is Skyy sponsoring us again, but they changed up their MO slightly...


Well, mostly. FedEx kept trying to deliver it while I wasn't home, so I had to go chase it down and pick it up myself, before they did something horrifying like returning it to the sender.

You can probably imagine how exciting this is, right? IT'S TOTALLY EXCITING.

Except I'm not really sure what to do with Coconut Vodka. I mean, clearly some sort of tropical drink concoction is in order, but... hmm. They did helpfully include some drink recipes, but my brain keeps yelling at me to try to figure out a way to make a piƱa colada, somehow, some way. I still haven't tried it yet (I've been drinking a lot less lately... my age is starting to catch up with me and my tolerance is pretty much next to none existent anymore) but I am determined to get good use out of this.

The other exciting thing? This isn't even on the market yet. It's so brand shiny new that Skyy doesn't even have it included on their website alongside the other Infusions flavors.

Pretty bad-ass, no?

Anyway, enough gushing. Peoples of the Internet: tell me what to mix this with! I need your help!

Most of my swag I'm not going to be able to eat b/c it's all gluteny. I'm going to have an assload of giveaways on my blog after I get back from my retreat.

Um. If it is infused with coconut...why does it need to be mixed with something?

On another note, you could make a grown up ocean water by mixing it with Sprite.

The obvious answer is to save it and drink it the next time I'm back in Iowa.

Mine came while I was out of the country and I had a hell of a time tracking it down. It's now in the kitchen and I'm plotting. I really want to try the basil concoction on the recipe card but a Pina Colada sounds amazing!

Coconut milk or pineapple juice for sure. God that shit sounds DELICIOUS.
