It was sometime last year when I noticed it. It was at one of my favorite liquor stores
Midtown Wine & Spirits here in Nashville. It seemed harmless enough. Being a vodka connoisseur I wasn’t going to touch the stuff even though the cashier claimed it had vodka in it. I thought to myself “Self, that seems like it might be cool for the ladies. I mean its pink so who else could it be for?”. Yep that’s right I’m talking about Hypnotiq 2009 Nuvo.
I’m sure you’ve seen the pink bottle before. Like I said I heard it had some percentage vodka in it (can’t be too high). Before long clubs where having Nuvo themed parties. And I thought to myself “Self, this could actually be cool. Get the ladies to come out the club. So it can’t be that bad.”
But that’s when it happened. An out pour of men drinking this stuff like it was cool to be walking around drinking pink sparkling water. This movement was headlined by ‘Mr. Blame It’ himself
I don’t care if you drink it straight out the bottle. Anytime I see a dude drinking Nuvo I think it looks real suspect. Yeah I said it. It feels good to get that off my chest (pause). I went to the Nuvo site and this is their description of the drink:
“…Nuvo’s delicate fruity taste, distinctive pink colour and enchanting bottle…inspired by the fragrance industry…”
So this is what the likes of T-Pain, Trey Songz, Cam’Ron and what ever other rapper/singer choose to drink? I don’t care if they might get paid to endorse it. Have some respect for yourself man. Call me old-fashion but I’ll take regular 80 proof vodka any day, anytime. I’m good with my Stoli, Kettle One and Ciroc.
