Who doesn’t like the idea of a nice NutLiquor? Me. That’s who.
Now before I begin to rant about how stupid this 69 proof peanut butter vodka is, I must say that I haven’t tried it. Maybe it’s delicious. Maybe I’d be a huge NutLiquor fan and hang out with other NutLiquors, all of us slurping down this nut-inspired nectar like a bunch of drunken squirrels. Who knows.
My problem is with the cheesy pun of a name. Stuff like this always makes me crazy (or, you know, nuts – zing!), when it seems that a product has been created to fulfill a sophomoric name some advertising manchild has come up with instead of out of a demand in the marketplace or a distiller’s ingenuity.
On the other hand, this could very well be someone’s baby, one which they labored over getting just right, only to have some smarmy marketing slickster come along and give it a name that only the ladies and a few guys who play for the other team will appreciate. What dude wants to order a NutLiquor?
Anyway, I bet this stuff would make for some interesting mixed drinks, as the peanut butter flavor is probably a welcome addition to the mixologist’s toolkit.
But over all, ugh. Just ugh. Is this what we’ve come to? NutLiquor? Really?
What’s next? TequilaMockingbird? AbsintheMinded? SofaKing Imperial Stout? Ugh, ugh and ugh.
