Written by The Kitchen Hand on . Posted in drink

Like every drink, sprite and vodka does not work for some people but for others it is the perfect drink for them. If you would like to chill in the sitting room and watch a movie with a drink, you can be sure that vodka and sprite is the drink for you.

If you would like something with more taste, you can try the flavored variation of this mix. But whatever you do, be certain that you will enjoy it. It is simple and yet not ordinary and when mixed in the right ratio, you won’t notice the change in taste. It will taste just like sprite. You will notice the vodka in the bite the drink is won’t to give.

The truth is if you are one of those people who love the ordinary Sprite drink, you will love this cocktail. It is one of the best cocktails for its simplicity and taste. The vodka changes nothing about the sprite. Not the flavor or the look.

When you drink this vodka and sprite mix, you get hundred percent of the sprite taste and hundred percent of the vodka feel which is absolutely great, if you know why you are drinking it. And there is the good part that you can take this to cure hangovers!

Vodka and Sprite Recipes

Making a simple Vodka and sprite drink is easy. You do not need extra stuff or an elaborate recipe. All you need to make up the vodka and sprite ingredients is:

  • A highball glass
  • 5 oz of vodka (absolut vodka is preferable but you can use whichever vodka suits your taste buds, my friend)
  • 5 oz of sprite.
  • Ice cubes
  • Orange wedge, for garnish

Mix everything together in your glass and stick the wedge onto the rim. And drink!

The best part of this is that you can pour according to how much you think is good for. You should know that pouring them in equal ratio will give you that sweet blend that would make it an even better experience but basically it is all up to you.

You make it the way you will enjoy it.

If you want the vodka more pronounced, you can up the vodka more than the sprite and you will get exactly that. If you want just the tint and bite of the vodka, you will have to do it the other way which is upping the sprite with just enough vodka to show its presence in your mouth.

And another way to enjoy this is if it is served cold. Absolut vodka mix with sprite and a couple of ice cubes in it and you won’t know when you have gulped few couple of glasses already until you start feeling the buzz that is sure to come.

When mixed properly, it can take a while before you realize you’ve had too much. So knowing how much to take is good. Being one of the easiest and very affordable cocktail, it is not hard to imagine how very popular it has become. But for now, these vodka and sprite recipes below should get you started.

Low Carb Vodka and Sprite

This is for those who would like to enjoy the vodka and sprite cocktail but are scared of the whooping 34 grams of Carbohydrates that is present in the normal one. With this drink, one has to be careful with what one uses. The wrong kind of drink recipe and one can have complications that are far more expensive to manage than the one glass of drink that they had intended to enjoy.

Making the low carb vodka mixed with sprite drink is really easy and just as affordable as making the usual one. In this case, all you have to do is use Sprite-Zero instead of the normal Sprite that you would use if you are making the normal Vodka and Sprite drink. And the process of making it is just as easy and same as the usual.

Pour each drink in a glass to your content, depending on your preferred taste and put some ice cubes in and relax back and drink. The quantity of each drink depends on you want it but a 3:1 ratio will work just fine. 3 parts sprite to 1 part vodka.

Skyy Vodka with Sprite

Skyy Vodka is one of the premium vodka in the United States. It is said to have been through quadruple distillation and three process of filtration and made with from the finest of grains. These make it one of the best and the fact that it is one of the most requested drinks in bars makes it a popular blue figure.

Although when used alone it feels good but, it gets an even better feel in the mouth when mixed with Sprite. The taste from skyy vodka with sprite is exceptional and the quality is different – some might even say enhanced.

Smirnoff and Sprite Mix

This is another variation of the Vodka and Sprite cocktail. Smirnoff, depending on the flavor, can be a good mix for sprite too. It is mostly used for small gathering but it is also suitable for whatever you would like to use it for. This also depends on the taste of the people that are going to be there.

Smirnoff and Sprite taste perfectly great.

For the Smirnoff and Sprite cocktail recipe, you will need just a bottle of Smirnoff and a bottle of Sprite and ginger (which is optional but could be a great choice) and cubes of ice. All you have to do after getting the ingredients is to mix in a glass and put some ice in the glass. What you will get is a cold, good tasting glass of drink for you to groove to.

Whatever vodka drink you are mixing with Sprite, the word to work with is accuracy. The accurate amount of each drink will give you just the right tasting result you want and that is how you get the perfection you need. Making a flavored vodka and sprite drink can be tricky though and it calls for other ingredients and other drinks instead of sprite.

Raspberry Vodka and Sprite drink is made with the usual vodka and sprite drink ingredients with the addition of raspberry to add flavor to it. You could add strawberry if you want but it would taste original with just the raspberry and the vodka and sprite in the mix. This is because too many added flavors could ruin what could have been a perfect drink.

Then there is the cranberry vodka mix with sprite too. This would need a couple more ingredients than the raspberry flavored drink if you want your drink to come out tasting good.

To get the cranberry vodka and sprite cocktail, you will need a cup of cranberry vodka simple syrup and vodka and lime. The lime should be fresh so it does not ruin the taste of the cocktail and then finally, you will need a bottle of sprite. If you will like to garnish, you could use cranberries or a lime wedge or both if you like.

To make it you could get a tall glass or any glass you prefer and put ice cubes in it and then pour syrup in the cup and vodka and squeeze your lime in. After all that, you top it all with the sprite. To get a good taste you can pour to your fill but make sure you stir properly and taste as you stir to know when it is a good mix.

Sometimes it can be confusing with Smirnoff vodka and Smirnoff Ice. Most people do not know that there is a difference beyond one having flavored and the other not. There is in fact a significant difference in both. Where Smirnoff Vodka is a distilled alcohol with about forty percent alcohol content, Smirnoff ice is what some would call “a beverage with alcohol content”.

It is a sweetened, fruit flavored drink with about five percent or less alcohol content. Smirnoff ice is made from fermented malted barley so it’s more like a beer while Smirnoff vodka is hard alcohol or spirit.

Other Cocktails with Sprite

There are so many cocktails that are made with Sprite all over the world. Maybe it was because Sprite is one of the best ways to get rid of hangovers or maybe it is just the taste that has everybody loving it. And all of these mixtures are rich and they taste just as exciting.

Absolut Symphony is a madly artistic drink that is made to look and not just taste exotic. It is made with Absolut CitronStrawberry LiqueurLemon juice, Grenadine and Sprite. And it is very easy to make. All you have to do is put the Absolute citron, Lemon Juice, Strawberry Liqueur and Grenadine in a shaker and shake to mix and pour in a glass and add sprite to the mix and put some ice cubes in there and you are ready to go!

Amanaconda is an easy to make vodka and sprite drink that uses just four ingredients to make something magical. All you need in the recipe is Absolut Mandarin Vodka, Absolut Citron Vodka, Tonic Water and Sprite. To make it you will fill a glass with ice and then put a bit of both vodka in and then the tonic water and a splash of sprite for its taste.  If you are feeling like it, you could garish with an orange.

Blue Lagoon is a beautiful drink that promises nothing less than magic. Like the name says, it is blue drink made with Blue Curacao and lime juice and vodka and sprite. For this one you pour your blue curacao in a glass of ice and then add a bit of vodka and lime juice and fill with sprite. If you are interested in garnishing, a twist of lime is a much better choice.

Cherry Kick is a four ingredients recipe drink. Not much in it but it tastes absolutely incredible. To make this you will need the Jack Daniels whisky or any whiskey but the Jack Daniel whiskey is a preferred choice. And then you will need seagram’ 7 crown and Grenadine and of course, Sprite!  To make this is pretty simple like most cocktail. Mix everything in shaker and shake well before straining in a glass.

Spike: The Spike cocktail comes many variations which differ from either person to person or region to region. But for this recipe, all you will need to make this is Vodka (skyy unflavored vodka if you are gunning for quality), Peach Schnapps, Passoa Passion Fruit, Safari, Sprite, Cranberry juice, Pineapple Juice.

Interesting, yeah?

Seeing as there are so many flavors present in one drink. One would expect chaos in a glass. To make this you just have to blend everything with ice and equal quantity of the pineapple and cranberry juice and then pour it in a sugar rimmed glass. If you like, you could garnish with a slice of orange or a slice of lemon.

These are just some of the many that are out there and the list keeps growing. Although most of the ones in this list have vodka in them, there are others with Tequila and Rum and Beer and more. Even as we speak more are being made and experimented with.
