I’d heard about Pearl vodka before. I think it may have been in relation to a club in Los Angeles. I’d never tried it. Erin threw it out as an idea a few times, and we finally decided to give it a shot.
Pearl just tastes bad as a shooter. It doesn’t burn, or dry the mouth. It just tastes really bad. It isn’t even the normal bitter flavor, and I can’t really put my finger on the flavor. Pearl is just a bad shooter. If you happen to be shooting it, make sure you have a chaser.
The Mixed Drink
Mixed, Pearl really shines. I was able to mix with several different mixers ranging from Pineapple Orange Mango, to straight orange juice. While the bad flavor colors the mixer a bit, it doesn’t detract too much. If you have Pearl, you really ought to mix it.
