Pearl Harbour

by | Oct 19, 2020

 


Melon liqueur is a divider. Much too sweet and artificial some say, exotic and delicious other say.⁠

We’re probably caught in between those opinions. But we really wanted to give this drink a chance, as it also includes vodka and pineapple juice – that we don’t use too often.⁠

After shaking and pouring, you are left with a stunning looking drink if you ask us. The pineapple juice creates a nice fluffy foam on top of the drink, and the intense yellow color makes the drink look very tempting.⁠

But…no, the taste is tough for us…⁠

The neutral vodka in combination with pineapple and melon – it tastes a bit like it does when you accidentally chew on aluminum foil. A bit chemical, a bit indescribable. We debated if we should even post the drink in our feeds, but decided to do so as we still think the drink looks so nice on photo.⁠

Is this a drink you would appreciate? We’d love to get the debate going as our opinion might be very different from others. Let us know if you have tried this drink.⁠
