Lotus is a fine mixing vodka and because it has the natural base it's best to build that up with mixers of equal quality and purity. If you choose fruits, juice your own; with liqueurs, go higher up the shelf; and sweeteners, homemade is best. I wish I had more Lotus on hand but each of the drinks I tried with it were spectacular and I can highly recommend the Flirtini, Damiana Golden, Ginger Martini and Harrington. It is in vodka cocktails with a balance of fruits and herbs, sweet and dry, where White Lotus shines. If you're in the no-mixing mood this is also a lovely chilled, straight sipping vodka.
A warm and inviting aroma of subtle citrus and herbs opens the White Lotus experience. This leads to a silky, semi-dry vodka with clean, rich and warm flavors that mimic the fragrance. Finishes soft and quick, warm and lively.
When mixing with Blue Lotus, the same advice I gave for the White applies - keep it natural - however I do prefer it in taller drinks. The luscious Firefly, refreshing Harvey Wallbanger and sweetly tropical Hollywood are perfect candidates.
Blue Lotus Vodka has a soft and sweet fruit aroma leading to a bright, slightly dry palate with herbal undertones. Finishes with a distinct, stimulating, citrus punch that dissipates quickly.
