If someone doesn't have a good time behind the bar with this outrageously delicious spirit, check his or her pulse and call a medic. SKYY Infusions All Natural Raspberry is a mixologist's dream come true—an unpretentious, skillfully produced spirit that's chaffing at the bit to have some fun. In fact, it's one of seven equally brilliant infusions now in the SKYY portfolio, each of which is tailor-made for contemporary cocktails and capable of imbuing drinks with sumptuous flavor without adding unwanted sweetness.

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

From start to finish, SKYY Infusions Raspberry is an enticing treat for the senses. It has a satiny featherweight body, and a succulent, remarkably generous bouquet. The infusion raises little to no heat as it bathes the palate with flavor. Anyone who has ever stained their fingers feasting on fresh raspberries will attest that this infusion has all of the tang and zest of freshly picked fruit. Its thankfully long finish is lush and delicious.

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