You might have seen Kru. It’s the vodka in the metal sports bottle. It has a caribeaner on it. If that doesn’t ring a bell, you haven’t seen Kru. Or, at least, you didn’t know you were looking at a vodka. We’ve seen a gimmick bottle and we didn’t like the taste. Is Kru all gimmick?
Kru is very easy to drink. It’s flavorless the entire time it’s in my mouth and only has a slight bittery burn as I swallow. It’s almost too mild to mention. I don’t even need a chaser.
The Mixed Drink
I mixed Kru with orange juice for a classic screw driver. As you might expect, it mixes quite well. There aren’t any bitter flavors and the orange juice doesn’t taste weird like most screw drivers. Kru makes for a great cocktail.
Vodka from Holland can be hit or miss. Kru is definitely a hit. If you get a chance, try it out. You’ll even get a cool bottle!
