I may be in trouble with this one. I like a good martini and I have a pretty wicked sweet tooth, so this news about the new Pinnacle Cinnabon Vodka made me pretty happy.
Here’s the description from their press release:
Pinnacle® Cinnabon® Vodka offers lip-smacking indulgence that combines the decadent flavors of cinnamon, brown sugar and rich cream cheese frosting with hints of caramel to create a taste reminiscent of warm, freshly-baked cinnamon rolls. At 70-proof, the product is smooth, five-times distilled and can be served chilled, on the rocks or mixed in festive cocktails at any brunch or get-together.
Yeah, I’m staring at that and drooling. How about you?
The Cinnabon Vodka will be available in select markets on December 1, 2013 and nationwide on January 1, 2014 for $12.99 a bottle.
