Who named LIV's new Hpnotiq-inspired
signature cocktail? I did! And who'll drink this blue beverage
made with a blend of vodka, cognac, and tropical fruit juices? Some
say Smurfs and Avatars. Others think it'll probably be the
Pitbull-and-his-entourage-look-alike crowd. I didn't create the
monster, I only saved it from a sorry name such as South Beach Betty.
Blue Vice ($12) is 2 oz. Hpnotiq, 1 oz.
blueberry vodka, and a splash of lemonade: a little sweet for my
taste. Says Jimmy Vargas, Director of Sales and Marketing at LIV,
"Hpnotiq is a long-standing partner with LIV and we have plenty
of exciting programs over the next few months with the brand."
Blue Vice will have an indefinite shelf life on the cocktail list.
