We were lucky enough to get a chance to review the Ty Ku Sake a few months back, and we were even more lucky to get a second shipment from Ty Ku offices a few days back. Enclosed was a bottle of their Sojo (which weâ€™ll get reviewed in due time) and a 750 of this green-tinted spirit. What purchasers will first notice is the button at the bottom of the bottle, which illuminates the spirit nicely. After they get a chance to open the bottle, they will be greeted with a very sugary and fruit-filled nose that simultaneously touches upon lemon-lime, orange, and even Kool Aid notes.
With such an inviting set of attributes, the Ty Ku Liqueur will be the hit of any party or social function that it is present at. The alcohol content of the liqueur is sufficiently low (20%) that individuals could just sip or shoot it all night, but I feel that Ty Ku shines the brightest when it is married to different juices or mixers. For example, one of the best cocktails that I have had in recent memory is the Skinny Senorita, which uses 1.5 ounces of Ty Ku and .25 ounces of tequila mixed in with a splash of soda water and a little bit of lemon to create something light while still alcoholic.
For those that want to see the pure beauty of Ty Ku, try out the Ty-Tini (1.5 ounces of Ty Ku, .25 ounces Citrus-flavored Vodka, and a little bit of soda). Ty Ku is at a position where it could easily dethrone both Hpnotiq and Nuvo in the new year, and if all the music videos are true, it has already done so. Pony up the $25 or so to pick up a 750 of Ty Ku and see what all the fuss is about.
