As a side note, I actually had fun jamming a slice of orange in this one. Normally I have to painstakingly arrange the fruit slice on the edge of the glass, but this one was simple and fast. I might have to do that more in the future. Especially if a certain baby demands to be held during picture time.

“Well?”

“Meh.”

“Really? I thought you liked Benedictine?”

“It doesn’t really go that well with the vodka.”

The Verdict: Meh.

From The Tasting Notes:

The vodka and Benedictine didn’t really play off each other in this drink as much as in previous drinks. It ended up tasting a little bland, which was a shame.
