The Glazed Jelly Donut: Drink Review

I ordered this drink at the Jolly Roger in John’s Landing.  On the menu it was called a Glazed Jelly Donut and while the name is apt it’s not really a description of the taste.

The drink was constructed in the glass with ice and looks to comprise:

1.5 oz 360 Glazed Donut Vodka
1 oz Svedka Raspberry Vodka
Fill glass with club soda, add splash of cream

Flavor wise the drink was great for about the first two sips.  Once I had a chance to stir it up a bit the entire thing when flat and watery.

I can see why this isn’t shaken, the club soda would fizz out and you’d have a mess to clean up.  But in the glass this isn’t anything fancy.

It could be that the bartender wasn’t familiar with the drink, or it could just be a badly constructed drink.  I think there is potential here but it needs some effort.

If I were going to make this at home I would do the following.

1.5 oz 360 Glazed Donut Vodka
1 oz Clear Creek Raspberry Liqueur
Splash of cream
3-5 Raspberries

In bar glass, muddle raspberries.  Add alcohol ingredients, shake with ice.  Strain into chilled glass, float cream on top.

Enjoy folks.
