Happy Hour: Vodka Press

The other day my bff Emily told me all about her new favorite drink, a vodka press. We are huge vodka drinkers, and when we're not guzzling Grey Goose martinis, we're sipping vodka tonics or vodka sprites or vodka on the rocks — you get the picture. What happens when we are in the mood for a vodka that is neither too sweet (like a vodka sprite) nor too strong (like a vodka tonic)?? Enter the vodka press. It's the prefect refreshing mixture that combines both drinks.

In a vodka press, vodka is diluted with both a club soda or tonic and Sprite. Hello?! How come we are just now learning about this drink?? If you love vodka as much as I do and want to make this cocktail,

I always order vodka and soda with a splash of 7, squeeze of lemon. I had no idea it had a name! It sure is a mouth full the way I've been ordering - thanks!

I like to mix the Van Gogh dutch chocolate vodka with club soda. The flavor of the cocoa is so strong, you can do it without sugar! It's like a chocolate soda with a kick!

i agree with radnessa- blueberry press (with lemon) is awesome! but i have always known presses to be made with club soda, not tonic water. i don't think tonic would be very good eith sprite. and if you're watching your calories (you probably shouldn't be drinking, but where's the fun in that?) just go with blueberry/ your fav flavored vodka with club soda and a lemon or lime twist. leaving the soda out cuts calories and sugar-which is often what leads to a hangover.

This sounds pretty good! But I think I'd use club soda for sure, the thought of mixing vodka, tonic and Sprite sounds a bit weird.
