An Impressive Import: 2Nite Sicilian Blood Orange Vodka


In times of harsh weather, are there any greater pleasures than sweet, simple sippers? The short answer is simply, no. Distilled in Italy, housed in a hand-painted Venetian glass bottle and made from GMO-free, organically-grownTuscan semolina, 2Nite Sicilian Blood Orange vodka definitely offers a dramatic European flair. Throw in a flavor lineup that includes Alpine Mint and Caffe Espresso in addition to non-flavored, and you’ve got a portfolio that over-delivers for the price point and entices with exoticism.The 2Nite Sicilian Blood Orange was a natural base for Sara Clavor to use in treating our panel to a little throwback. “I thought I had to make a take on an OrangeJulius!” explained Claver, a bartender at McGonigal’s Pubin Barrington, IL. “It’s got such a great orange flavor and natural sweetness that you really don’t need to do too much to it,” said Claver.

“Sweet orange pith on the vodka neat is a really nice balance to the sweetness; the cocktail harkens back to youthful days at the mall—but way more fun!” – Rachel Burkons
