Has flavored vodka jumped the shark? There are some zany bottles rolling off the shelves these days – the spirit tastes like cupcakes, bubble gum and now buttered popcorn. Has anyone ever looked down at their cocktail glass and said “I wish that this tasted like popcorn – with butter!” We’re thinking no, but that didn’t stop 360 Vodka from rolling out their new flavor. And just in time for national popcorn month. This comes after the release of 360 Glazed Donut and like it or not, it sure beats adding a few squirts of that movie theater butter-like-substance into your glass.
If you’re wondering what kind of drink this stuff might be good for (because we were) check out the recipe below.
Caramel Corn Collins
2 oz. 360 Buttered Popcorn
½ oz Caramel sauce
2 Lime wedges squeezed
Combine vodka, lime juice and caramel sauce in a mixing glass filled with ice. Shake well to loosen caramel and dilute. Strain into martini glass with fresh ice. Top with root beer. Garnish with caramel popcorn.
