Raspberry Vodka

The raspberry vodka introduces a vibrant and fruity kick, making the cocktail exude a berry-flavored charm. Why 2 oz? Perfect balance – not too boozy, not too mild. If you went overboard, your cocktail would be too strong and could overshadow the delicate berry flavor. Underwhelming? Well, you might as well have a mocktail.

Sprite Remix

Bringing in some effervescent jazz with its fizzy personality, Sprite Remix makes the drink lively. Why 12 oz? It dilutes the vodka just right while saturating the drink with its dynamic flavor. Skip on it and you miss the pop and zing. Swap it for plain soda water, and you dial down the sweetness, for a more grown-up twist.
