Liquor Lounge

Wasup people so I'm going to do my best to bring you a review in some shape of form of an alcoholic drink on the market. Being So Snewty is all about being educated if you choose to indulge in drinking, whether it be socially or in the pursuit of getting drunk so you can enagage in debauchery and blame it on the alcohol. Last week the Snewty team tried the new Belvedere Black Raspberry Out.

Belvedere Black Raspberry
Macerated Vodka Imported from Poland
80 Proof (40% ABV)
Price$30-35 range

The Taste: This vodka screams berry flavor. Naturally if you aren't a fan of berries this isn't for you. This also isn't an alcohol that can easily be masked by a purchase of your average 99 cent juice pick up from the liquor store. My liquor connosiuer whose in his late fifties and has had his fair share of all kinds of alcohol had this to report. " This liquor would mae a nice cosmopolitian or martini...but the flavor is just right where you can drink the vodka by itself. The bottle is very nice so this would make for a nice gift or present for a get together. This definitely isn't the alcohol you buy though to taint with high frutose corn syrup in a pursuit to get drunk as that for a $10 bottle of vodka not a $30 bottle. You absolutely have to appreciate the flavor of berry though because with this vodka its efinitely overwhelming".

Coctail Suggestion: Raspberry Julep


50ml/2oz Belvedere Black Raspberry
8 fresh raspberries
10 leaves fresh mint (no stalks)
15ml simple syrup


Press sugar into mint
Muddle in rasberries add vodka and top with cracked ice
Churn and retop with cracked ice
Stir and garnish with a mint sprig and a raspberry

So there you have it folks.
