Pumpkin Pie Vodka is a Thing Now

A few weeks ago Scott got emotional about all the different flavored vodkas out there and even had some ideas for a few flavors of his own. We convinced him not to quit his day job for a life in Siberia distilling vodka; but, fortunately, there are others out there that continue to push the envelope in vodka flavoring. Some may say they're pushing it right off the edge of a cliff. And, taking it a step further, some are cheering that it goes off that cliff and falls into a giant abyss called "bad trends."

But until then, Beam Inc., the maker of the Pinnacle brand of vodka, whose flavors include atomic hots, cherry whipped (embarrassed to admit I've had this, but proud to admit I hated it), cucumber watermelon and marshmallow, has developed a limited edition pumpkin pie vodka.

Now, we're not in a judging place, right? This is a circle of trust, correct? I think some of the suggested recipes actually sound sort of good.

See recipes...

Yuppie's like crazy, not very practical sh+t that means nothing to anybody!? This means nothing more than a wet hill of beans?

Just sayin', when consumerism runs rampant, is failure not far away? Remember Rome in the 5th century?

@stella_stella99 can't stand this ridiculous trend - dumb as flavored coffee - pumpkin spice!? Really!? It's liquor not candy #goneoverboard

When drinking vodka and you are offered a flavored version, just think to yourself, Self, does it go with tonic? If the answer is no then turn it down.

Flavored vodka is so passé. Been there, puked that, in the '80s. Give me Monopoliva, Grey Goose or Titos.

was sitting at a bar when the tender asked if I wanted to try donut flavored vodka, being that it was free I said sure, then on the 2nd one he added chocolate vodka,  Taste just like a chocolate covered donut.  The only thing missing was the sprinkles

@DavidWondrich @alcademics by definition of vodka, isn't flavored vodka not vodka?
