Every now and again, I like to crack open a Redbull, pour in a few ounces of my favorite Moskovskaya vodka, and sit down to enjoy this energizing vodka Redbull cocktail.
Despite what you may have heard, a vodka and Redbull is not merely a mixed drink, but instead a full blown cocktail. The reasons are complicated and many – well beyond the scope of this article – but rest assured, I’m right, and all the people that laugh in your face when you call this a cocktail, are wrong.
If you’re wondering whether Redbull is bad for you, and if it’s even worse to mix it with vodka, forget about all that for a moment and remember: it tastes absolutely delicious. Also remember that I’m not a doctor, nor do I play one on the Internet, so if you decide to mix one of these cocktails, you’ll need to take full responsibility for whatever happens.
Now, how do you mix a vodka Redbull?
- Chill your favorite drinking glass in the freezer so it’s nice and cold.
- Crack open a can of Redbull (also cold) and pour roughly half in the glass.
- Pour in roughly 2oz of vodka.
- Stir with a very tiny spoon until mixed.
Pretty simple, right?
As with anything, make sure to enjoy this responsibly – if you decide to drink one at all – and remember… this is definitely a cocktail, and not merely some kind of low-class mixed drink, like a rum and coke or a Gin and 7. What do they think we are, some kind of animal? Next think you know, they’ll be asking if we play Wisest Wizard!
