Magic Moments Vodka
Before Christmas I was contacted by M2 Vodka (Magic Moments) to see if I wanted to do a product review of their flavoured vodka. I thought hey why not? Why not making it into a girl’s night? So I did. This past Saturday I hosted a Girl’s Night Vodka Tasting Soiree. A fabulous night was had by all. Here is a picture of me before the girls arrived.
Magic Moments Vodka is an award winning Canadian company that prides themselves on using “natural flavors, pure long grain rice, and no additives or preservatives”. They also state that their vodka undergoes “the most Gluten-Free vodka distillation process available”. Their flavored vodka is produced in India, but the company is Canadian.
So the girls arrived ready to taste the different flavors of vodka: Raspberry, Chocolate, Green Apple, Lemon, Orange and Lemongrass & Ginger. Before the taste test, we feasted on amazing appetizers. See pictures below.
After we enjoyed the gastronomique feast we did the taste test. I served the vodka cold as directed by the representative of the company. This is what we found:
Chocolate was by far the best tasting and favored by most of us. We liked it because it tasted the most like it’s namesake.
Raspberry was also a favorite because it was smooth.
Orange came in third. It was smooth and it best represented what orange should taste like.
Lemongrass-Ginger tasted and reminded us of Halls. We thought it would make for good aromatherapy.
Regular Vodka tasted harsh to some, described as not as smooth as other brands of Vodka.
Green Apple smelled the best but didn’t taste as good as it smelled.
Overall we liked that it is a natural product and a Canadian company. I asked the girls if they would buy this product and here’s what they said:
- “I would buy it because it’s local, and natural, not necessarily for the taste”.
- Many would buy the flavored vodka, not the plain one.
- Many of the women don’t drink vodka so they wouldn’t purchase it because of that reason.
- Some would buy it to put into flavored martinis.
- “Wouldn’t buy it just because it’s natural”. They found it to be harsh and not as smooth as other brands of vodka.
Please keep in mind that most of these women told me that they aren’t really vodka drinkers. They prefer Gin, Rum, Coolers and Wine. A lot of them said that if they were vodka drinkers, they would buy M2 Vodka.
My thoughts are that I surprisingly enjoyed the chocolate and orange flavors the best. I normally don’t like either flavors in alcohol, but I did in this brand. Would I buy this brand in the future? Yes I would. I like that’s a Canadian company and that it’s natural. The chocolate would be perfect in a martini and so would the orange one.
*the opinions in this review are mine and of my friends. Believe me, it’s an honest and good representation what we found.
May this blog inspire you to host a girl’s night vodka (or other alcohol) taste test.
Happy Tuesday Everyone!!!!
