When I saw the above item gracing the window of our numerous liquor stores (Dunne’s Polemost Liquor methinks) I paused. It seemed inexplicably familiar to me. Then it hit me. This is virtually identical to a product Absolut created in “collaboration” with Spike Lee: Absolut Brooklyn. Some of the more seasoned readers of New York Shitty might recall there was some controversy about its sponsorship of Brooklyn Blogfest V— and offering freebies/cheapies in exchange for editorial content on Brooklyn blogs. But the past is just that—- the past. What I, a woman who lives in a community with PLENTY of vodka choices, wanted to know was this:

What’s the fucking difference?

After some research I found the answer!

Absolut Brooklyn is vodka made with “red apple and ginger flavor”. So there!

“its flavor evokes the spice and vibrancy Brooklyn brings to the big apple”

Provided they’re red apples, of course.
