Sidekick Ultimate Cream Vodka
Advantages: they taste really good
Disadvantages: for me, none!
I don't go out drinking often but when I do I usually buy something me and the girls can drink in shots to spice the night up a little.
For a while now I've been buying Sidekick.
Sidekick is most commonly found on Asda shelves, but I have now noticed that Tesco are stocking a couple of flavours to.
Unless on offer a 50cl, tall glass bottle of this costs just over £5 but I try get it when it's on offer for about £4.50.
There 2 versions of this drink you can buy, just the flavoured vodka based shots or the cream versions which is what I like to buy, as I find them less bitter and sour and so shocking as a shot. I actually find the cream versions taste quite nice.
There are a few flavours you can buy in the cream version of this shot drink and they are all a lovely, pale yet creamy colour which makes them different to look at on shelves and quite eyecatching too. Flavours I've tried are Strawberries and Cream, Choc Mint, Cookies and Cream, Toffee Caramel and a newer one Chocolate Orange. I find all of them equally as nice and they always are a hit on my girly nights to liven things up a bit.
No matter which version you buy they are all 14.5% volume, so particularly strong for a shot drink.
The fact that these are creamy shots means the bitterness of the vodka shot is taken away slightly which makes this drink more enjoyable in my opinion.
By creamy, I mean it has an almost milky consistency, so has a smoother blend and taste when swallowing this, rather than a watery sting to your throat when you just have the 'normal' shots you can buy.
The flavours are strong and in fact quite delicious, even with the vodka aftertaste. Strawberries and Cream is probably my favourite, smelling wonderfully of a sweet strawberry - although I wouldn't say the proper healthy variety! The choc mint is also delicious, most definitely having a chocolate taste with a minty tinge which works really well together. Cookies and Cream, just too me, has a slightly chocolatey taste, nothing too special really. Toffee Caramel, again, has a chocolate taste but with a slight sweetness of caramel. I havn't tried the chocolate orange one yet, but no doubt I will.
All of the flavours I have tried though are really quite tasty, and the vodka base isn't too overpowering or bitter either, making these quite enjoyable shots to drink.
Summary: a lovely tasting shot drink
