It’s Friday, so you know what that means:

Alcohol!

This week we picked a drink that is almost entirely straight alcohol for Tom since he had to eat a crazy gelatin this week. Granted, that gelatin ended up actually tasting good, but he still deserved it for being brave.

“I could seriously drink six of these.”

The Verdict: Very good

From The Tasting Notes:

Straight forward, and a drink for a vodka drinker. Sour from the lime with a slight hint of cherry. You could still taste the vodka, so make sure you use the good stuff!
