Thirsty Thursdays: Tito's Vodka and Welch's

I find it amusing that the decision to post today's Thirsty Thursday post coincides with a lawsuit against the vodka I had already planned to write about. According to the lawsuit mentioned in a story on Paste Magazine just yesterday, "A California real estate broker has filed a civil lawsuit against Texas-based Tito’s Handmade Vodka, claiming the distillery can’t claim the vodka is 'handmade' because of the sheer volume of bottles sold each year."

Well, I don't care if the vodka is handmade or not- the bottom line is it is yummy and smooth and because of my recent opportunity to try it, Tito's Vodka is making an appearance for this week's Thirsty Thursday!

I tried Tito's Vodka on Friday, September 5, 2014. A co-worker brought it and a bottle of Welch's Passion Fruit juice in for our weekly happy hour. I had never tried the vodka or the juice but thought- what the hell! You never know until you try whether you will like something or not right?

First, I poured a shot of the Tito's. The vodka was smooth and the lighter fluid after taste many vodkas present was nowhere to be found. Second, I splashed a little bit of the passion fruit juice into a cup to try it by itself. I've had drinks with passion fruit mixed in them in the past, but this was the first time I tried it alone. The juice was tart but not too tart and no overtly sweet either. Lastly, I grabbed a Red Solo Cup and decided it was time to put the two together. Unintentionally I mixed equal parts of the Tito's and the Welch's Passion Fruit juice with ice in the cup.

Verdict? The half and half drink was really good! It was kind of funny that every time I took a sip I commented on how good the drink was to the point that my coworker said, "You don't have to keep saying it's good." I couldn't help myself though. It really tasted yummy and I honestly couldn't prevent myself from uttering that every time I took a sip! LOL! I would definitely make this drink again and would highly recommend it if you are looking for an easy drink to mix for a party but don't want that annoying alcohol after taste.

So, lawsuit or no- Tito's gets thumbs up from me- regardless of it's handmade claims it tastes damn good!
