Hi, I'm leaving for Aruba on June 27th and was wondering if anyone knows if you can get raspberry flavored Vodka at any of the supermarkets in Aruba. Also, I know each person is allowed 1 litre bottle to bring into Aruba, does anyone know what 1 litre bottle is equal to? (Is it a fifth) I appreciate any help you can give me. Looking forward to my first trip to Aruba. :)

lings has a fairly good selection of many vodkas
i do know that they have the speciall flavors but cannot guarantee raspberry.

1 bottle duty free per person age 16 and older

isn't a litre the equivalent of a fifth?

A fifth is 750 ml. So a liter is a little bit bigger.

You can purchase Raspberry Schmirnoff and Raspberry Absolute at Ling and Sons. I recall that a liter of the Absolute is about $28 there.

A "new" drink that I'll be trying is Ice Tea flavored voka mixed with leomonade.

A litre is approximately 34 ounces...a bit larger than a quart.

Yes you can get raspberry Absolut at both Lings and King. I always drank Absolut Citron (lemon) on the rocks when I was drinking that kind of thing and then......Screaming Eagle made a misake and served me Absolut Mandarin. After a taste I called them over and asked what it was - they tried to take it back and replace it with Citron but could NOT pry it out of my hands. Yummmmm!!! I'll have to try the raspberry. I know Yemanja has it as I asked for Ab Mandarin (btw the other orange vodkas are not as sweet because they use regular oranges and not Mandarin oranges) and they said that they had raspberry if they couldn't find the Mandarin. :)

re: raspberry vodka

a month ago when we were in florida we visited a friend and had dinner and a drink at his house.
at the friend's house he made my husband a white russian....kahlua, vodka, milk.

later that evening dh said he was sick with an upset stomach and that drink was the worst he ever had.

turns out it was raspberry vodka in the white russian (gag)
:doh:

MAMAB welcome to the forum

Hope you find your vodka, but if you don't there are plenty of good bartenders and drinks to have in Aruba.

A couple friends of mine love the firefly sweat tea vodka. They went through a few bottles of that over the three or four days we were there.

Shame Shame Shame......Maybe if you were partying like the way we do in NJ you would know.:D

The Shot Block measures 40”x20”x10” and weighs 300 pounds and lasts about 12 hours.

It's a plain block of ice that we put on a wooden stand. We take a chainsaw(usually) and carve a few groves in it. Somebody will climb up the steps behind the block and pour straight from the bottle, usually flavored vodka down one of the channels and there is someone down below with the mouth on the end of that grove waiting for that delicious, ice cold shot. We also mount a black light underneath it so at night it lights up all cool looking. I'll take pics in August and post them. Heck maybe you will even come out for the paryt to give it a shot!(no pun intended) :D

LOL-that was good. Party is last weekend of August(mine and my friends b-day's) Do another road trip! We usually have 3 bands and start with 8 kegs, pig pit, hot dog wagon. Just a ton of food and booze. Then whoever goes is welcome to camp out on his property. We usually get a bunch of campers then whoever camps out he makes breakfast for the next morning.

The ice block get very interesting once the sun goes down!;) So does the party too!:eek:

Very easy just go to an ice house and buy a 300#-400# block. Put it on a stand and carve some groves into it with a chainsaw. They are a blast.

LOL.... anything that is 300 - 400 lbs doesn't sound "very easy".

I remember when I was younger I used to go to a bar in NYC that had an ice block every weekend. I think it was called Ski Bar and they would give you a sticker that looked something like a Ski Lift Ticket if you took a triple shot off the "Ice Slope".
