XB Sexy Cocktail

XB Sexy
XB is a bottled cocktail inspired by a Sex on the Beach. It’s made with real fruit juice and features a blend of orange, cranberry, peach and grape juices – as well as triple distilled Swiss vodka. What’s unusual about it is that it can be used as a component in cocktails, not just served on the rocks, and what is even more unusual is that it actually tastes very good. It’s not too sweet, but has a subtle fruitiness to it. 

XB was just released in California and I had a chance to taste it at a release party the other night and found that it is definitely a versatile product to play around with. The XB Sexy was the hit of the night, a great balance of fresh cucumber, honey, gin and XB that is a great way to cool down on a hot summer afternoon.

2 oz Gin
