Vodka recipe

Sat Aug 20, 2005 11:07 pm

I bought a ton of vodka recently, but im unable to keep it down. It was like the cheapest they sale, and it BURNNNNNNNNNS. :cry: Ive tried mixing it with gatorade, cranberry juice, and powerade. But its still pretty nasty. Does anyone know a vodka recipe that masks the taste, and stops the burning?

Especially one that uses
* Skim Milk
*Coke
*Lemonade
*Powerade (tried it)
*Gatorade (tried it)

because thats all we have at the moment to drink. But ill try anything.

Oh and a quick question. Does stirring it in matter? It just occured to me that ive just been pouring the vodka in the drink, without stirring it or anything. Will that help any?

I've heard pouring cheap vodka through a Brita (or similar) pitcher can improve its taste tremendously. If you have a Brita pitcher, might be worth a shot.

The cheaper stuff probably burns a lot more than the top shelf stuff.

Never tried it, but I've heard Yoo-hoo can mask the taste of almost anything.

Thx for the suggestions, but didnt see anything that wouldnt make it worse. Eggnog? Tomatoe juice? Ewwww.

I might try the yoo-hoo though.

I was able to get some of it down with the lemonade last night, and i didnt puke it up! woooooooo

But im starting to think im immune to all drugs. Ive tried vicodin and booze (not together). They both made my stomach hurt and i didnt catch a buzz. I dont think im drinking enough though.

I always got the cheapest vodka I could find (Aristocrat? I think? Is that a real brand?) and then made lemonade out of it...Monday Night Football was great this way...we'd (and by "we" I mean me, my roommate from my freshman year, and two guys down the hall from me) make a pitcher of lemonade and then add about 1/4 bottle of vodka...then as the pitcher went down, we just kept adding vodka and powder rather and only very occasionally, water with the powder...by halftime it was probably 75% vodka, but noone could tell because we were totally **** blitzed. Monday nights were the absolute best.

10am classes were very, very tough on Tuesdays.

God, I miss college. :cry:

We can get handles for under 12 bucks here in PA, it burns so bad one shot on en ampty stomach and you will throw up. I've seen NOONE hold it down on an empty stomach, it just EATS whatever lining you had. Its cheaper than Vlad, blech!

Me and my buddy went shot for shot every time the steelers scored hte other night, ontop of a not-too-shabby 7 beers for myself, I was heavily buzzed.

yeah this does sound like a disaster waiting to happen . just take it slow . drinking is kind of like exercise you have to work up to huge amounts of booze or exercise . i used to be in really really good shape when it came to drinking ( your wife being a bar tender will do that ) . the most i ever put down in a night was a fifth of vodka and a fifth of kahlua ( black russians ) . needless to say i wasnt good for much the next day . i made around 150 bucks playing 8 ball and didnt remember any of it thats how drunk i was . i did some other things that i dont care to mention because of the family nature of the site :o

Step #1, eat a good meal, lots of breads or pastas.

Step #2, take a multivitamin (so you don't wake up hung-over).

Step #3, take a large glass, put a few ice cubes in, and fill the glass about 30% with your sh|tty Vodka (about 3 shots worth), then fill it the rest of the way with your gatorade, powerade, or lemonade.

Step #4, mix it around, then pour it into another glass, sans ice cubes (so it won't get watered down).

Step #5, drink, then repeat steps 3-5 as desired.

You should start slowly, though. I remember @ the beginning of last school year, when I was introduced to the stuff, it was at parties, so I was talking, walking around, and dancing. It's much easier to gauge your sobriety(or lack thereof) when doing such things. I have trouble telling how sober I am if i'm just sitting on a couch drinking beer after beer or shot after shot. Good luck.

Oh, if you happen to overdo it and end up praying to the porcelain god, drink a glass of water or two and eat some bread. Another multivitamin will reduce the agony in the morning.

Why don't you try mixing it with a regular drink like 7up? Or just suck it up and take it like a man.

Nobody mentioned OJ? Screwdrivers are good-tasting, you can make them w/o having to think, and practically anyone will drink them.

This is mostly right, but to add to ti:

The multi-vitamin will help, but nothing helps if you drink TOO much... except possibly a stomach pump. :lol:

To help with a hang over also try drinking 1 or 2 tall glasses of water before falling asleep. This will help ease the dehydration. A couple ibuprofen would be good to. It will help reduce swelling and ease withdraw symptoms.

One of the better mixes that will also help minimize a hangover and tastes decent is not only orange juice but cranberry juice as well. Mix in the cranberry juice and orange in equal amounts.

Mix in only as much vodka as tastes good. Don't over do it. If you only put 1 shot in a tall glass with these don't worry about it. After 5 glasses you'll be about perfect and the chances of a hangover slim.

one shot in a tall glass ? amatures :lol: i mix drinks in a 32 oz glass 1/3 vodka 2/3 whatever i happen to be mixing it with . one big draw back of this method is you sit down to play a game on the comptuer and finish one drink and think your ok until you stand up :o

If you do drink too much trying to find the right mix (there are a lot of suggestions, try them all!) and you get hung over, get some light excersize with water when you wake up.

I love vodka. These are my favorites. Google em' for info.

Dirty Vodka Martini

Vodka Collins

Cosmopolitan

And if your going to drink cheap vodka try McCormicks or Smirinoff they have the least after bite. And if you can ever afford to drink good vodka pass up Absolute, Skyy and Stoli and get yourself some Grey Goose.

How much time do you have?

First, filter the vodka. Follow the link to the other thread, there is a lot of good information there. The vodka may not taste great, but it will definitely taste better.

The other option: Make your own vanilla vodka. Buy 2-6 vanilla beans at the grocery store (they're in the spices section) and use a knife to slit them lengthwise. Boil 2 cups of sugar in 1 cup of water until the sugar dissolves. Pour the sugar water into a 3/4 or 1/2 full bottle of vodka. Add the vanilla beans to the bottle and let the vodka sit for about a month. Pour & serve. If used with filtered/good vodka, the taste is very smooth.

Absolutely (ABSOLUT-ly? :lol:) correct.

The tall glasses of water is a good idea. However, ibuprofen might not be a good idea until the next morning, as IB irritates the stomach lining, as does alcohol, and when combined, increases the chance of stomach bleeding.

I kinda liked learning the hard way, although I found out that I have an alarmingly high tolerance, which helped immensely.

o man, I was afraid a picture was gonna pop up in between the line and the smiley :o . I'm all in favor of public urination, though. In fact, I'm frequently in favor of it. Line for the bathroom? Nature is my bathroom. If it needs CO2 and water, I water it and exhale extra hard in its general direction :wink:

When my roommates and I are looking for a cheap way to provide drinks for everyone, we take a 5 gallon water cooler (like the ones they have in athletic stadiums), put in one handle of cheap vodka, one pint of koolade fruit punch mix, and fill with water and ice. It isn't terribly strong, but after several glasses most people are happily buzzed and everyone will drink, even fickle women, it because it just tastes like koolade. Of course you can put in more koolade or vodka to what you can stand in terms of taste.

Also, i have friends that run cheap vodka through brita filters, they say after 3 or 4 times through it becomes very smooth. Your brita filters won't last very long though. If you're just looking to get drunk, i'd recommend 100proof nicolai vodka. It's stronger than most (which are 80 proof) and it's pretty cheap.

Mix it with cranberry juice and a little bit of lime juice (you can buy a bottle of lime juice at the supermarket instead of using fresh limes, I think the brand name is RealLime).

Nobody's posted jello shots yet? They're a lot of work compared to pouring vodka into a random drink, but they mask the taste pretty well.

Last New Year's I made 4 batches of jello, color-coded for potency.
They ranged from a 1-8 ratio to 1-1 ratio of vodka to water.
