Vodka Redbull has Become a Party Favorite

The Vodka Redbull has become the ultimate Vodka Cocktail in the club scene. These Vodka Mixed Drinks are notorious for their abilities to go down easy, get your drunk fast, and help you keep the night going. Vodka Rebull isn’t a hard Vodka Mixed Drink to make. In fact, it’s only those two ingredients. So what’s the big deal?

Vodka Redbull has gotten a bad wrap in the past few years, mainly due to the fact that you are mixing two completely different drugs: alcohol and caffeine. To put it in layman’s terms: alcohol (vodka) is downer and caffeine (Redbull) is an upper. These two drugs in your system take a toll on your heart, as many will experience rise in their heart rate and blood pressure. For the sake of being on the safe side, I will advise that you try and LIMIT yourself on how many Vodka Redbull you have in one night. I would be lying if I said that I have ever stopped at just one. But the more alcohol and more caffeine you put in your system at one time, the more you’re playing with fire. Tread softly.

Well, now that you’ve been properly warned on the hazards of Vodka Rebull, lets see how easy these Vodka Mixed Drinks really are to make.


Vodka RedBull Recipe:

  1. Pour 1.5-2 ounces of Vodka into a large shooter glass.

    You may want to use a rocks glass to ensure you have enough room for the redbull.

  2. Pour in 2-4 ounces of redbull.

    If you’re using a shooter glass, fill it to the top. If you’re using a rocks glass, add enough to at least make Vodka Redbull a 50/50 ratio.

  3. Serve the shooter and use excess redbull for addition chasing.

    Some bars will poor you the Vodka Redbull and actually give you the rest of the can. Feel free to sip on this until you make your next drink. (There are 76mg of caffeine per can. Know your limit!)


Vodka Redbull Ingredients:

  • Vodka
  • Redbull
  • shooter or rocks glass
  • Highball Glass (for taller drink)

Go the extra mile

  • If you want to make it fun, fill a highball glass with the whole can of Rebull and drop your shot of vodka in and chug!
  • If you want to drink it slower, add the whole can of Redbull to a highball glass filled with ice and then pour in your shot of vodka.
So that’s the Recipe for a  Vodka Redbull. When compared to other Vodka Cocktails, I would say it is definitely one that be should tried when out at the club. Despite the warnings, Vodka Redbull does offer a nice pick me up when intoxicated and can actually lessen the drunk feeling. Just remember this isn’t permanent! When the caffeine from the Vodka Redbull wears off, you will be feeling even more drunk, so careful with your consumption!


Good luck and let me know how it goes!
