LiDestri Spirits from Rochester, NY recently sent me a bottle of their mü creamy vanilla latté to check out. Instead of being a spirts based drink, it's made with a wine base and flavored in four distinct ways. In addition to the Creamy Vanilla Latté you'll hear more about in a second, they also have Creamy Chocolate Chai, Creamy Coco Cappuccino and Creamy Espresso Macchiato.
Another thing that drew me to the product was the beautiful presentation. The bottle had a bow on it--my wife was pissed she couldn't give it away to a friend we're visiting tomorrow: "that's a really nice idea, perfect to take with us." Each flavor is different, but this bottle showed a ballerina in a pose with her skirt hiked way up--very sexy. The bottle also told a little story to set your expectations. 13.9% alcohol.
I thought this was going to be awesome in my morning coffee, but you know what? It wasn't really that noticeable. However, over ice, it was a kick-ass drink. Honestly, I love that spirits riff you get from other spirits based drinks, but this was very smooth and easy. Creamy, very flavorful, delicious, "with an adult twist."
If I were you, I'd start trolling them on Twitter and Instagram @drinmu.com and be sure to grab this or one of those other awesome flavors. Again, I think it's a beautiful gift to bring with you to any gathering!
