SKYY Infusions All-Natural Pineapple

SKYY Infusions
All Natural Pineapple


By Robert Plotkin

Honestly, wouldn't you rather be lying on the beach in paradise right now? Perhaps someplace intriguing like Martinique, Jamaica or on the beaches of Barbados? Not everyone can jaunt off to the Caribbean, but sipping a drink made with SKYY Infusions All Natural Pineapple may be the next best thing. Its irresistibly fresh persona is like an exotic vacation. And that's exactly how it should be marketed—as a romantic adventure in a glass.

One of the lottery picks of the Class of 2009, SKYY Infusions Pineapple is crafted through a proprietary process in which premium vodka is slowly steeped with all natural pineapple flavors. With the passing of time, the vodka is imbued with the lavish aroma and flavor of the fruit. The infusion is then bottled at 70-proof so there's no biting edge or alcohol burn.

SKYY Infusions Pineapple is lush and delectable, an inspired alternative to using flavored, molasses-based rums when making Tiki drinks and tropical cocktails. The vodka has a seamlessly smooth, crystal clear body and a captivating bouquet saturated with the succulent aromas of pineapple and light citrus zest. Sampled neat, it softly rolls past the palate and fills the mouth with luscious, true-to-fruit flavor. The infusion's lower alcohol content allows the flavors to linger on the palate. Its naturally tangy sweet finish is balanced and thoroughly satisfying.

Armed with a bottle of SKYY Infusions Pineapple, bar chefs and mixologists can add the flavor of the islands to cocktails and mixed drinks with a quick flick of their wrists. It has a body to die for and a mouthwatering quality rare among vodkas. SKYY Infusions Pineapple is the total package, a small slice of affordable luxury.

The pineapple infusion joins an all-star lineup of flavor sensations that includes Citrus, Cherry, Grape, Raspberry, Ginger and Passion Fruit. While they are all phenomenal when mixed, each of the SKYY Infusions should be sampled neat to be fully appreciated.
