From its brilliant color to its bold flavor, Hypnotic is pleasing not only to the eye but also to one’s taste buds. If you are wondering, “how does Hpnotiq taste like,” say no more – our team took the liberty of researching and came up with everything you need to know about this liquor!

Savoring Hpnotiq Liquor


What people commend about Hpnotiq liqueur is its blue color and sweet flavor brought by passion fruit and mango. The manufacturer knows how to complement the fruit flavors well, which makes it even more remarkable.  

If you don’t want to get drunk immediately, then a bottle of this liquor should be on your list when preparing for a party. The Hpnotiq liqueur has only 17% ABV and is best to drink over ice, straight or chilled.

We also discovered that these kinds of liqueurs might give an even more pleasant taste when mixed with lighter drinks like gin, wine, rum, vodka, and other cocktail recipes. 

What is Hpnotiq?

Hpnotiq was first started by Raphael Yakoby in 2001 while staying on Long Island, New York [1]. The word “hpnotiq” (pronounced as hypnotic) is a fruit liqueur with a distinctive blue color and tropical fruit juices like mango, passion fruit, and other citrus notes. 

These are bottled at Heaven Hill Distilleries, and this branded liqueur comes in only one version. It does not only have a flavorful taste but has a classy and eyecatching bottle too.

Mixed With Other Liquors

Hpnotiq drinks are a mixture of premium vodka, tropical fruit juices, and cognac. The blue color results from a mixture of ingredients that can also be found in other cocktail recipes. Aside from mixing it with fruits, Hypnotiq also tastes amazing when combined with champagne, wine, rum, martinis, cocktails, and gin.

Is There Any Substitute? 

Yes, there is a substitute for this amazing blue refreshment. Our team found out that you can also try blue curaçao – an orange liqueur from the Philippines made from orange peels distilled with lemon, sugar, and wine.
