Happy Hour: X-Rated Fusion Liqueur

While I normally prefer a classic cocktail or a glass of good whiskey, I've been known to enjoy a girly drink (or two) in my lifetime. Recently I've become obsessed with this brilliantly pink liqueur, X-Rated ($27).

At first, the cheesy name and vibrant color made me nervous. I was afraid it was going to be overly sweet — more like cough syrup than a luscious liqueur. However, the rosy liquid is absolutely delicious! A fusion of French vodka and organic blood orange, mango, and passion fruit juices, the liqueur tastes fresh not artificial. It's sweet, but not overly so. I served a chilled shot to girlfriends before a night on the town, but it would also be a flavorful addition to specialty cocktails.

If you're hosting a bachelorette party or bridal shower, consider serving X-Rated. Your girlfriends will love the taste and the experience of sampling a new liqueur. A bottle also makes a lovely birthday gift for a fashionable 21-year-old.

Have you tried X-Rated? What did you think?

Thats exactly what i got for my 21st two years ago! A girlfriend of mine slipped it into a pretty pink bottle shaped gift bag! I opened it for my celebration and mixed it with ice and sprite (like ailinamei) and it was a huge hit! The color is just lovely and the taste is refreshing and tropical, in a good way.

This stuff is sooooo good! Doesn't have a very high alcohol content though. I like it as shots since I hate most shots.

O my gosh, this is my favorite liqueur. I combined it with ice and sprite for my signature cocktail at my wedding reception. So yummy.

I have always wondered about this. I'm not a big drinker but this would be really cute for a girls night in.

I love this liquor, although I don't think it has much of an alcohol content...

I love X-Rated. It was used in every mixed drink a friend's fabulous birthday party. His theme was "Pretty in Pink". PF Chang's has a great cocktail that uses X-Rated.

It's true, it's a great gift for a girl turning 21. I just gave a friend a bottle and she squealed in delight- true story! I received a bottle of Hpnotic for my 21 which was very cool too. I felt like a rapper! :-D

I have to agree with you, I really didn't want to drink anything that was pink, but it's really good. I work as a bartender at PF Changs, and we have a new drink called the PF-X that uses X-Rated. It's delicious!
