Cocktail Mixology

Chelsea’s Tasting Notes

Crystal Head Onyx Shot
  • Nice!
  • I love how the flavor builds on your tongue.
  • We did Simply Apple in one and Honeycrisp Treetop in another.
  • Even the apple juice changes it.
  • It’s like a perfect autumn drink.
  • It’s got that nice crisp, like eating a fresh apple.

Skull Candy Cocktail

  • That doesn’t taste like vodka, it tastes like tequila!
  • It’s good, but it’s definitely confusing.
  • It does have that tequila taste to it, but not the burn.

Erick’s Tasting Notes

Crystal Head Onyx Shot
  • Delightful
  • I taste mostly apple and a little of the St. Germaine.
  • I like them both, they’re very good.
  • I like that this drink doesn’t require ice.
  • It’s pretty much like a spiked apple juice, very refreshing.
  • It’s what we would call a dangerous drink.
  • If you’re an apple fan, by all means.

Skull Candy Cocktail

  • That’s the beauty of vodka is that you can do pretty much anything with it.
