Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


Water is the universal solvent, here to balance and dilute the strong flavors and alcohol content of vodka. It makes the cocktail more palatable and hydrating, especially with the inclusion of Pedialyte for an electrolyte boost. No water would mean a potentially overwhelming drink. Substitute? Try sparkling water for a fizzy twist!

Vodka, the heart of many cocktails, offers a clean, potent canvas to exhibit other flavors. 25oz is enough to ensure that kick, yet it won't knock you into another dimension. Less vodka, and you'd lose that warming hug; more, and prepare for a boozy bear hug. Alternative spirit? Swap for white rum for a sweeter, more tropical flair.

MiO Flavoring

MiO turns your cocktail from a bland potion to a tasty ocean of your chosen flavor. Too little and you'd miss the party; too much, and it's a sugar rush. Want a change? Lemon juice or other liquid flavor enhancers can offer a different spectrum of taste.

Secret weapon alert! Pedialyte sneaks into this adult drink to provide electrolytes, aiming to prevent the notorious post-drinking headache. Skip it, and you might regret it after your dance with dehydration. Fancy an alternative? Coconut water could be your ticket to Tropical Town and still keep you hydrated.
