Almost all packaged flavored vodkas are made from plain vodka doctored with extracts or chemical blends. Absolut, Grey Goose, and Smirnoff are just a handful of vodkas that use flavoring. Some say theyâ€™re â€œinfused,â€ others just â€œflavored.â€ Orange V, for example, markets itself as being â€œinfused with the intense flavors of Florida oranges.â€ Itâ€™s actually made with orange flavoring. Some producers will go to greater lengths: 267 Infusionsâ€™ flavored vodka, tequila, and rum do contain real cranberries, lemons, and chili peppers. But they are also flavored with fruit extracts. How much of the fruitiness comes from the stuff floating in the bottle versus clear liquid from a dropper? The company isnâ€™t saying.
