Things to mix with Vodka?

45 posts in this topic

My parents gave a giant bottle of glorious vodka. Since I'm too much of a pussy to drink that stuff pure, I like to mix it. Beside the already obvious mixes with Orange Juice/Red Bull, I'm looking for new mixes idea. So, alcoholics: Disclose your secrets! Toolmaker

Coke is still one of my favorites...
And a vodka/beer combo can get you pretty trashed.. ah, some good nights there.

and if you mix vodka and oj and freeze it, you can make some nice popsicles :)

As long as the vodka costs more than 7 dollars a bottle, it wont be too bad to take straight once in a while.

Look up how to mix a White Russian. Takes the vodka down smooth. As long is it isnt Gordon's or something.

Pretty much any juice or "lighter" soda (ie: 7-up as opposed to coke). Cranberry juice is a pretty good one.

Generally...
Vodka:          juices, light sodas
Rum & Whiskey: heavier sodas (yum jack&coke)

Red Bull, of course.

The substance formed as a result is believed to be comparable to liquified crack cocaine.

Keep it in the freezer. It's much more pleasant to do shots when it is ice-cold.

Also some crazy Russian guy showed me a great thing once. Take a lemon, and cut it into thin slices. Sprinkle a bunch of plain sugar on each slice. Then find some coffee grind and sprinkle that on too. Then do a triple-shot of vodka, and as your mouth is reeling, quickly take one of the slices and eat it (including the rind). The crazy flavor of the lemon slice will make you forget you just did a triple-shot of vodka. Good times!

Alternatively, you could just have someone punch you in the face.

Vodka is definitely one of the best mixing alcohols out there...

--OJ
--cranberry juice
--grapefruit
--kahlua (I can never spell that one)
--sprite
--lemonade
--koolaid/fruit pucnhy-type things
--tonic water
--selzer water (with a little lemon or lime)
--iced tea

you can basically mix vodka with almost anything and it'll turn out alright

I present to you the mixing instructions for the best drink ever:
* Mix:

1. 1 oz. EverClear
2. 4 oz. Bombay Sapphire or Jeremiah Weed
3. 4 oz. Cold Wild Turkey
4. 2 oz. Tequila
5. 5 oz. Rum
6. 1 worm from bottle of Mezcal
7. 2 oz. Gatorade

* This makes one approximately 18 ounce Pan Galactic Gargle Blaster. The reason this drink seems so large is that Zaphod Beeblebrox has two heads, so when he created it, it came out to 9 ounces per head, so both were happy.
* Before drinking, eat one olive to create a sweetness in it which is not there.

If you're Brad Pitt you can mix it with prune juice. At least that's what he does in "The River Runs Through It".

Obviously none of us are Brad Pitt or we wouldn't be posting here. We would be making sweet love to Angelina Jolie. That's what I would be doing any ways. Or buying crap.

I recommend limeade with vodka. Get the frozen stuff that comes in the can you have to mix yourself. Mix 2 cans of vodka and one can of water with it.
