Drinking Effen Salted Caramel Vodka
One can tell that this flavor has seen as much care as Effen's Cucumber and Black Cherry. Produced in Holland and distilled from wheat, the base vodka is already smooth. When the natural flavors used to get the salted caramel taste are added, it is simply amazing. It has a wonderful, buttery caramel taste and the salt is perfectly balanced, making just enough of an appearance in the background that you know it is there, while giving a nice depth to the vodka.
This is an easy vodka to drink straight, simply chill it and enjoy. While it is a natural companion in sweetened and creamy drinks like a White Russian, it is really good when simply topped with ginger ale (something sweet like Vernors) or the likes of Jones Soda's Vanilla Bean (which is rather dry on its own, but great when mixed). Then again, if you are looking for that indulgent cocktail, you have to try Effen's Salted Caramel Rocky Road. I dare say that that one is a little too good and can be dangerous.
