Absolut Pears Vodka
Advantages: Tastes good
Disadvantages: Too much will give you a headache!
Absolut Pears is part of the Absolut fruit based vodkas and was first introduced in 2007. The vodka comes in an opaque glass bottle with a pull off silver and plastic/cork stopper that is easy to use and does not leak. A 70cl bottle is 40% abv and is currently retailing on Amazon for £16.09 (February 2013. The bottle is decorated with black and green writing describing the product and the country of origin; Sweden.
The vodka itself is clear in colour and the consistency of water. On opening the bottle you will be greeted with strong pear scents and although strong the smell is not overly alcoholic or off putting. Absolut Pear is made from water and winter wheat and has no added sugar, pear is the main ingredient in terms of fruit, though other flavours are used to enhance the pear taste.
I tend to drink it served over ice, you will taste smooth vodka with a heavy hit of pear that has a nice sweetness to it and it does not taste unnatural, it finishes with a hint of sweetness, goes down well and is not like drinking pear drops! I also sometimes drink it with diet lemonade, as a long drink and I find this very refreshing, especially in the summer. You can also use the vodka in a variety of cocktails, though I have not really tried this yet, though it does taste good topped up with some ginger beer and a lime wedge squeezed into it. I have tried many of the Absolut fruit vodkas and although I like this, it is not my favourite, I prefer the citrus based ones really. It's a nice drink for a change and is definitely reminiscent of summer drinking.
Overall I would recommend this drink to those that firstly like vodka and also those that enjoy fruit flavoured drinks, it is a smooth, well balanced vodka, that is versatile, in that it can be drunk on its own, mixed to make a long drink or used in cocktails. It is also well priced. Happy drinking!
