5 Wackiest Vodka Flavors of 2012

Care for a little salmon in your martini?


James Bond would never make his signature shaken martini with marshmallow-flavored vodka. But there’s a growing trend among spirit consumers who don’t share 007’s passion for Vesper.

Vodka makers like Diageo (NYSE:DEO) know that many of their fans like booze with a little zing. That’s why there’s been an increase in creative vodka flavors. Since consumers favor vodkas with either a sweet or spicy edge, many of the wackiest new flavors follow suit. There also are some savory bottles of vodka on shelves.

CNBC recently compiled a list of some of the wackiest flavored vodkas on the planet. Here’s a look at five:

  • Marshmallow: Smirnoff
  • Chili Pepper: Absolut
  • Smoked Salmon: Alaska Distillery
  • Cookie Dough: Pinnacle Vodka
  • Scorpion: Skorppio Vodka

I promise that I didn’t make up the last one.
