365 Drinks: #240 Pelican Blackcurrant (Malaysia)

Pelican Blackcurrant
Pelican Blackcurrant

Ambiguously fruity with disappointing alcoholic punch

And the list of mixers I had in Malaysia continues. Today, a clear and light red brownish-looking Pelican vodka mixer with a cherry on it’s label. But as I learned, this doesn’t mean that it is actually mixed with cherry juice. When I opened the bottle and had a sniff it smelled strongly like blackcurrant. I double checked the picture and there where clearly cherries on the label. But the final taste check also didn’t really show any sights of cherry. It had a sweet blackcurrant taste with not much alcohol flavor but a slightly chemically note to it. I also didn’t really feel anything of the 5 percent alcohol that the bottle supposedly contains. Cherry or blackcurrant, this was one of the worse mixers you can get here.
