Summer's almost over, but there's still time to experience something different, so say our friends over at UV Vodka. Are you ready for UV Salty Watermelon? The 19th flavor in Phillips Distributing's ever-expanding portfolio, this bold new flavor attempts to recreate a summer delicacy: salted watermelon. Did UV succeed? Well, we're not sure. Flavor-wise, there's a lot going on in this bright pink tipple; it makes us think of Sweet Tarts candies. Several tastings brought on grimaces from some of our testers. But to UV's credit, Salty Watermelon does taste better mixed. It goes down nicely with lemon-lime soda for a funky alternative to your boring old vodka seven, and it blends easily with tequila for a fine Salty Watermelon margarita. But as far as using it in other cocktails, we found the saltiness tended to overpower, making it difficult to mix with. However, we're sure there are some mixologists out there who could work wonders with the world's first salted fruit vodka. Try it out in your own bar, and please drop us a line if you succeed.
