Pinnacle Cotton Candy Vodka Review

2 StarStarStarStarStar

Pinnacle Vodka has become one of the most well know names in flavored vodka. Of their odd flavors, Pinnacle Cotton Candy is arguably one of the most insane. My main complaint with these vodka oddities is the lack of a clear way to mix them. Pinnacle Cotton Candy is a major offender of this, but, hey, who doesn’t like cotton candy?

The Shot

Pinnacle Cotton Candy certainly smells like cotton candy, but it doesn’t pull off the flavor well. The vodka feels dense. It’s like you took an entire cone of cotton candy, put a little water in it, and ate it. It’s not particularly bad, I guess, but it’s far from being good. That said, you aren’t supposed to drink this vodka straight.

The Mixed Drink

Our mission at VodkaBuzz is to bring an unpretentious look at vodka. By my definition, that means we are pragmatic about mixing. I’ve taken a lot of flack about the stuff we mix with, but we don’t claim to be do anything more than I expect the average drinker will do. That makes some of these odd flavors difficult. Pinnacle Cotton Candy is especially difficult. Almost all the cocktails Pinnacle suggests on their website require one or more other Pinnacle flavored vodkas to mix with. That ain’t our style.

Fortunately, Pinnacle did specify two “normal” mixers for Pinnacle Cotton Candy: Sprite and Coke. Well, they really said lemon-line soda and cola. That really means Sprite and Coke. I got Diet Coke and Sprite Zero. Both were absolutely terrible.

I don’t know if that was because I got the diet versions or because Pinnacle Cotton Candy is really a froufrou mixer. If you had better experiences, please do share them. Until then, as far as I’m concerned, avoid this vodka.

Rated 2 out of 5.

    I like this one mixed with diet Mountain Dew (not the regular kind because it makes sugar overload)

    The best way to mix with the cotton candy is sprite or club soda with a splash or 2 of cranberry juice I’ve never heard of anyone drinking it with coke that just sounds gross

      Mixing it with mountain Dew or Mello Yello smells like Skittles, and tastes amazing!

    I mixed it with cranberry, not bad but next time ill mix with a little less vodka or more juice.
    Better taste when it’s as cold as you can get it.

    My sister bought a bottle of this last summer and we ended up mixing it with club soda. It actually tasted a little like a cream soda, or just a really sugary carbonated drink. Not great but very easy to drink because it tasted like candy.

    Gave me an awful hangover.

      It tastes like it has a ton of sugar. Hangovers seem inevitable.

    I bought a bottle of this because I was curious as to what it would be like. I found that it was absolutely DELICIOUS with White Out Mountain Dew!
