Do you remember those grass flavored jelly beans? The one that came in the overpriced Harry Potter boxes or whatever? Maybe they still have them (I'm sure they do, actually), but anyway, I used to go into the Jelly Belly store near my sister's when I visited and buy a bag of the grass flavored alone. I loved them. So when I realized that Oddka was offering Fresh Cut Grass Vodka, I pounced on it.
The scent is wonderful and refreshing as I expected. It's not overly grassy - you can pick up on some fruity scents in there. To me it almost smells like honeydew melon, grass, and cucumber. Which makes for deliciousness in my book - it's one of the better vodkas I've had. And what would it go better with grass than some fruity, fresh flavors? I love pineapple juice, and while since I've been to Hawaii it's never been quite the same (it's beyond amazing there, and I cannot explain what I mean, it just is), this was the perfect and most refreshing pairing for a cocktail. (I'm drinking this while I write, seriously, it's so good I had to make myself another.)
