Whether you’re deeply, madly in love (gag) or proudly, promiscuously alone (fun) this Valentine’s Day, you’re gonna need a tall stiff one.
And we’ve got the perfect vodka flavor for making memorable Cupid-inspired cocktails. It’s EFFEN Black Cherry. Because everybody thinks of cherries on V-Day for some reason. Probably because they’re sweet, juicy and fun to suck on.
Like all EFFEN vodkas, Black Cherry doesn’t go the overly sweet route. By eliminating glycerin or additional sugars through the use of vanilla blended with black cherries, it’s just sweet enough. (Like us.)
It’s flavorful enough to enjoy chilled straight up or on the rocks, but it also makes for a delicious addition to a chocolate liqueur for a decadent little sweetheart martini. Or replace your favorite rum and make a summer Mojito. The cherry, mint and lime combine in a delightful ménage a trois of flavors.
Or just mix it with Sprite if you’re more a one-on-one kinda guy.
Either way, this vodka is the only surefire way to have a Happy EFFEN Valentine’s Day!
