The Best Red Bull Cocktails to Get You Amped

By

You don’t pick a cocktail with Red Bull for a lazy afternoon on the porch. You don’t sip one during a candlelit dinner and you certainly don’t end your night with one. You go for Red Bull, and usually vodka, when you want to partay. These three Red Bull cocktails don’t try to make the energy drink into some prim cocktail ingredient—they highlight it in all its neon glory, or better yet, push the beastly mixer even further, alchemizing it into slushies and Jello Shots.

The tropical fruit-infused Red Bull Yellow Edition can go toe-to-toe with the original Bull as a cocktail mixer any day, especially when you combine it with bubbly, orange-flavored San Pellegrino Aranciata. This spritzy Lowball combines the mixers with vodka for an extra strong, extra fruity cocktail that will go down quick. Named for the celeb breeding ground outside Los Angeles, this shockingly colorful drink will easily become the star of your next gathering. “Red Bull?” your guests will ask with stunned looks. “Red Bull,” you’ll respond with a devilish grin.

The infamous club drink is even more fun in Jello Shot form. True to the original, the only other ingredients—vodka, water and gelatin—don’t do anything to offset the aggressive flavor of Red Bull, so these shots are only for those who truly love the energy drink. The one upgrade we made is the addition of maraschino cherries, complete with stems, which act as handles to easily pull the shots from their plastic cups. Bright red, potent and downright riotous, these shots will take your next party from blasé to bonkers.

Red Bull Vodka is a cocktail designed to get you up and moving, bouncing from bar to dance floor to bar again. But if you want that same drink in a cooler package, try this frozen take on the classic two-ingredient cocktail. With fruity triple sec and lime juice thrown into the mix, the slushie mimics a classic Cosmo using Red Bull Red, a cranberry-flavored version that makes a highly-caffeinated replacement for cranberry juice. Perfect for a summer day when you want to turn up while chilling out, this slushie is the best of all worlds.
