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 Best Red Bull Cocktails to Get You Amped
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.
