Review: Alize Red Passion vs. Kinky vs. X-Rated Fusion

Tasting Notes: While each brings some passion fruit, all brands have their unique flavor. Alize is a bit more mature with darker berry while Kinky is sweet passion and X-Rated is a more powerful flavor that cuts through most cocktail ingredients.

A battle royal of the pink drinks! There is no loser in this battle and the biggest winner is you, the consumer. All three products bring their own thing, but what thing is best for you? There will be those that love the sweetness that comes with Kinky Liqueur or the unique flavors of X-Rated Fusion which comes with some dry finish. Perhaps Alize is more for your palate, the type of person that likes the darker mature berry flavor with some minor passion fruit flavor.

Overall, none bring the passion fruit like a passion syrup but they do keep true to the passion essence. Mango? Kinky and X-Rated both call out their use of Mango but only Kinky seems to retain any in the flavor profile, very far into the finish. Tropical flavors ride high in these liqueurs, so take your pick!
