Bubbling Ruby Slipper

Primary alcohol: Smirnoff Orange

My experience with this drink came from the mixologists at Graze. The dry ice ball at the bottom of the glass created a show in the drink itself. I enjoyed it after a delicious, classy dessert, also a good taste with a fresh and healthy dinner.

Taste: Blending a combination of orange, pineapple, grapefruit, and mango results in a fresh and fruity drink that is easily downed, with a piece of dry ice causing every sip to be ice cold. The mango and grapefruit are the most prevalent flavors without using the orange wedge.

Appearance: A pale ruby appearance with bubbles and steam coming out the top and garnished with an orange wedge serving as a reminder of one of the many flavors inside.

Advice: Enjoy the fruity flavors, but the vodka is sneaky because of the myriad of fruit juices. Try drinking on the patio to enjoy the weather and the chilled specialty of the beverage.
