SKYY Infusions Citrus

SKYY Infusions
All Natural Citrus


By Robert Plotkin

There are more drinks in the lexicon of American mixology that call for the use of lemon than all the others on the flavor wheel combined. When you consider the fruit's vibrant fragrance and tart exuberant taste, it's not really surprising that lemon is relied on to breathe life into so many cocktails and mixed drinks. If for no other reason that makes lemon-forward SKYY Infusions All Natural Citrus a most welcome addition to any backbar.

One of the original vodkas in the range, top-shelf SKYY Infusions Citrus is created using a proprietary process that infuses all natural citrus flavors into smooth premium vodka. Through this process, the vodka is imbued with the succulent aroma and flavor of the fruit. The all natural infusion is then bottled at 70 proof so there's no biting edge or alcohol burn.

SKYY Infusions Citrus is a marvelous example of just how much true-to-fruit flavor a flavored vodka can deliver. It has a crystalline appearance, a light silky body and a robust citrus bouquet with delicate tangerine notes. Its lemon- and lime-infused palate is a balanced affair, semisweet and naturally tangy. The finish is crisp, flavorful and of medium duration.

Consumers today want their cocktails loaded with fresh, zesty flavors. Fashionably hip SKYY Infusions Citrus fits the bill perfectly. The vodka used to invigorate a wide variety of contemporary cocktails. It's often showcased in specialty Mojitos, Margaritas, Lemon Drops and Martinis for an added burst of flavor. Actually, when it comes to creative drink making, SKYY Infusions Citrus knows no limitations.
