  • 1.5 oz. vodka (any brand will work)
  • 4.5 oz. juice (any kind)
  • 2 handfuls of ice, divided
  • splash soda water
  • citrus wedge


  1. Place vodka, your choice of juice, and a handful of ice into a drink shaker.
  2. Put the top on and shake until combined.
  3. Fill a glass up with ice and pour the vodka cocktail into the glass. Then, add a splash of soda water. Serve with a citrus wedge such as lime, lemon, or orange.


  • For the nutrition information, we calculated it with orange juice as the juice.
  • A moderately strong vodka cocktail is 1:3, vodka to juice. If you want a stronger drink, you can do a 1:2 ratio and for something lighter a 1:4 ratio.
