The Crystal Cooler: Crystal Head Vodka, pineapple juice, orange juice, splash of soda : $7
Light Headed Passion: Crystal Head Vodka, pomegranate juice, cranberry juice, soda water, fresh blueberries : $7
This is most definitely a case of ‘who’d you rather?’ and there isn’t a clear winner between the two sister cocktails currently featured on Crush’s drinks menu. As a case in point, I ordered one and my friend ordered another. I personally preferred by own libation, the Crystal Cooler, with cool notes of citrus and a vibrant finish from the pineapple juice. She insisted that the Light Headed Passion was superior, with the visual appeal of the fresh blueberries and vivid juicy flavors. No matter which you choose, you’re in for a refreshing summer drink – the Crystal Head isn’t just an impressive cask but also a superior choice for vodka, and the ingredients in both cocktails balance nicely against its smooth bite.
