ABSOLUT CHICAGO

Friday, October 18, 2013 Teresa Espinoza


Brunch and drinks on a Saturday morning? Sounds perfect! I had the pleasure of joining ABSOLUT Vodka on a perfect Chicago Saturday morning to have an exclusive look and taste of their newest vodka! None other than ABSOLUT CHICAGO! A part of their cities series, this limited edition vodka is outfitted in an equally amazing bottle. So what does ABSOLUT CHICAGO taste like? Olive and rosemary! I was sold as soon as I tried it in one of my brunch favs, a mimosa. The ABSOLUT CHICAGO mimosa measured up very well to the mimosas I had in the past. Actually, it was a bit better! The real test was taking ABSOLUT CHICAGO as a shot alone to really get a grasp for the flavors in this limited edition vodka. On its own you are able to really get an appreciation for what ABSOLUT came up with. The flavor is all there!



If you haven't already noticed the special designed bottle in your local stores you definitely will now. Its designed with the colorful image of the Chicago Skyline. A collectors piece for sure!



Make sure to mark you calendars for October 24th as well! It's ABSOLUT CHICAGO day! Take part in one of their celebratory events marking the landmark Chicago drink. Start the morning off right with brunch ABSOLUT style or get free lunch and enjoy some music. Finally top off the day with a celebration in company of the masterminds behind the bottle and enjoy food, drinks and music! Can't be there to take part? Catch up with Red Eye on social media and participate in their scavenger hunt to win awesome prizes! Check out the details on all the happenings of ABSOLUT CHICAGO Day here.
