As you can probably tell from posts we’ve done in the past, we absolutely LOVE Pinnacle Vodka. It’s not that the plain vodka stands out as amazing, despite the fact that it’s really smooth for its price point. It’s really their vast catalog of flavors. They always manage to make the flavor come through strongly, while still leaving enough of the vodka bite to make you feel like you’re not drinking a strong wine cooler. Well they’ve just launched a new flavor that we’re pretty excited about.
It’s called Pinnacle Amaretto, and it’s a bit of a departure from their other fruity or sweet vodkas. It offers a full-bodied almond flavor with undertones of cherry and a smooth, lingering cocoa finish, which brings a lot more savory flavoring into the mix than usual.With that kind of a flavor profile, you’re going to want to try it in a tasty recipe, like the following sent to us by Pinnacle.
