Everyone in Chicago loves to hate Malort. It’s a right of passage for us in a way. Turn 21, take a shot of it and bitch about how awful it is. If you didn’t take a shot of Malort on your 21st birthday, you didn’t do your 21st birthday correctly as a Chicagoan.
This guy describes the taste as tasting like “an abortion clinic”
Now I personally don’t think it’s that awful. I’d rather take a shot of Malort 100x out of 100 over rail vodka or rail tequila. I realize I’m in the minority there, but it’s who I am. In fact Kacy Smith of all people was the only one to agree with me when Vibbs had the office take shots of it a few weeks back:
IT’S NOT THAT BAD AND I’LL TAKE THAT TO MY GRAVE!!!
Malort face is even a thing:
People seriously loathe the shit. But love it at the same time. Really weird dynamic.
But nevertheless, anytime a new Malort infused drink pops up I have to give it a try. Another coffee shop had Malort flavored mochas a while back. That was, in fact, disgusting. Couldn’t finish it. But you bet your ass I made a beeline to the coffee shop this morning to try this new Malort/Coffee liqueur.
Without further ado, my Malort Liqueur Cold Brew review:
Boom. Delicious. Not even kidding it was good. Have a good weekend everybody.
