Froggy B Vodka
About Froggy B Vodka
Something I really enjoy about chain liquor stores, like Total Wine or Bevmo, is browsing the huge number of spirits I’ve never seen before. I always leave myself some time to browse the shelfs but rarely impulse buy anything. But I was so enamored with the Froggy B Vodka label that I had to have it. I’ll pretty much buy anything that reminds me of Gex, the mediocre video game series from the late 90’s.
Froggy B Vodka is a straight forward, wheat-based vodka from France. The organic wheat comes from the Beauce region but the rest of the distilling is done in copper stills in the Cognac region. In fact, Froggy B is certified organic by ECOCERT.

I usually prefer spirit-forward cocktails, but I was really exited to change it up with a Sea Breeze. Froggy B is a perfect vodka for this type of cocktail since it’s so inexpensive, neutral and smooth. There are a bunch of different recipes for this cocktail on the internet but I like this one from Steve the Bartender’s youtube video. It had more grapefruit juice than other recipes.
This cocktail is really refreshing and dangerous. The cranberry was the dominant flavor, but the subtle grapefruit added the enough tartness for balance. And the Froggy B was doing it’s job, because I could hardly taste the alcohol. I could feel it, though.
I wasn’t sure what to expect since I had no prior knowledge of Froggy B Vodka, but I was definitely satisfied. It pretty much has everything I look for in a vodka.
The taste is smooth and neutral so it works great as a mixer. There is a little bit of sweetness that could be from the grain or from the sugar that’s listed in the ingredient list. And there was a little bit of alcohol burn when I drank it straight, but it goes away when mixed.
It’s not the cheapest vodka out there, but the price is still reasonable enough for a variety of uses. I think it works best as a mixer, but could be on the rocks or a shot. Probably not my first choice, though. I picked up a bottle from my local Total Wine for $13.
I also like that it’s certified organic. I didn’t really pay close attention to this type of thing until recently, but I don’t think I’ve seen another spirit with the certified organic stamp on the bottle.
As always, drink responsibly.
