Learn everything on which Vodka to choose


The smooth operator of the drink. Vodka is the backbone, providing a strong kick without overpowering the other flavors. Use 1 oz as it's enough to get the party started without turning it into a rocket launch. Forgetting vodka is like forgetting to invite the guest of honor to the party.

Peach Schnapps

The life of the party. At 1 oz, the peach schnapps adds a fruity sweetness that makes this motorcycle more of a vespa—playful and fun. Ditching it will take some of the joy out of the ride, leaving your taste buds yearning for that peachy horizon.

Cranberry Juice

This 2 oz of tart goodness cut through the sweetness, bringing balance to the force, and the cocktail. No cranberry juice? Be prepared for a one-way trip to Sweetville without any brakes!

Orange Juice

2 oz of sunshine in a glass. It brings a citrus zing and helps blend the flavors together. If you decide to skip it, you'll miss the tropical vibes and essential vitamin C for your soul.

The painter of the masterpiece. A splash of grenadine gives that iconic pink hue and a hint of cherry-like sweetness. Without it, your motorcycle will be lacking its pink leathers, and that's just sad.

Ice Cubes

They're not just to keep things cool, they also help to dilute the drink to the perfect strength as they melt. No ice equals a strong and possibly overwhelming drink.
