Facing a world that’s increasingly disinterested in print magazines, porn publisher Penthouse is turning to spirits. And among the predictable vodka, whiskey and on-brand “Libido Libations,” there’s a “Whiskey Tequila Fusion” in the Penthouse Spirits lineup.
The questionable fusion is made in Holland with Mexican tequila and American whiskey, and is described as a balance between “the silky texture of whiskey with the bold finish of tequila.” It’s about as accurately marketed as a liquor made by a porn magazine can be. It has stark black and gold coloring, Mars and Venus gender symbols, a call to “drink sexy” and 34.5 percent ABV (69 proof). The actual mix, though, is a bit more of a curiosity. Even Long Island Iced Teas don’t venture into the pairing of whiskey and tequila.
