Pearl Official Review

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.

The 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.


Pearl is a decent mixer for the price. However, there are much better vodkas for shooting or mixing in the same price range, like Rain and Tito’s. I’d suggest picking up those if you have a choice.
