The final drink in the Absolut vodka sampler is Raspberri. I remember growing up and eating raspberries on the farm. I preferred their tart flavour to strawberries, which I still think are a little overrated.
This is the classic bottle it uses. A nice deep red. Of course that's just the bottle, and the insides are clear.

Come-pear-ing these five types of Absolut vodka has been taking longer than I expected. In any event there is certainly two left, including this one. I bring you Absolut Pear.
No one is quite sure why pear was selected. It's not terribly common of a purchase of any of the fruits. It's quite rare for me to see anyone eating a pear too. Yet here we are.

I'm going to the country, and I'm going to drink a lot of peaches. I assume that was the idea behind this drink, at least by the creators.
Here it is in the specially coloured bottle.

With five types of drinks on the docket, we turn to the second one. This is Citron, a mass produced lemon vodka. This continues the sampler I got oh so many years ago, that was totally begging to be drunk.
Here it is in the bottle. It does about a shot and a little bit, depending on how big your shot glass is.

About 6 years ago, I was working at a call centre. I wasn't much of a drinker back then, and when secret Santa came about, we were all limited to $10 gifts. It seems someone wanted to break the rules though, and they gifted me this set. Since I wasn't much of a drinker, it just sat in my closet for the longest time. I figured now would be a good time to try them out. I wished to compare my flavoured vodka verses theirs, just to see how close they were.
This would be the five pack that it comes in. So many different flavours, and we'll get to each one of them with future posts.
I specifically went after Ruby Red, since I haven't really tackled grapefruit before.

And the Riesen is you. A long time ago, not like 50 years, but a solid twenty, I remember them coming out with Riesen candy. It is a candy that had a dark chocolate outside, with a toffee inside. The idea behind it is that it was a candy marketed to the older crowd. I think. I am not sure. I'm drunk now.
Here is the magical bag that they come in. It's not a perfect bag, but it is a bag none-the-less.
I decided to go with five, mainly based on the size of the vessel.
