Chow.com says infused vodka is out of style. This comes on the heels of the Wall Street Journal calling vodka out of style followed by NYTimes.com echoing a similar sentiment (we’ll be covering that topic soon).
I’ve never been a big drinker of infused vodkas, but I was looking forward to infusing my own vodka this summer. Infusion adds a different spin on an already great beverage, and it’s always nice to add a bit more natural flavor to a cocktail. Is it out of style, though? I’m not qualified to say yes or no, but I certainly won’t refrain from drinking it if I’m in the mood.
It could be just in time, though, if you ask Andy Richter (from Conan O’Brien’s show). Video of his Bakon vodka taste test is below thanks to Hulu.
