Vodka Soda Recipe

Vodka Soda

The Vodka Soda is an extremely simple, low-calorie mixed drink that’s great for those days you don’t want anything fancy. It uses just two ingredients, vodka and (you guessed it) soda water, and you can optionally garnish it with a lime or lemon wedge for an extra bit of citrus. A favorite of nightclub-goers, dieters, and lazy bartenders everywhere, the Vodka Soda isn’t so much classic as it is obvious—but that doesn’t mean it isn’t exactly what the doctor ordered from time to time.


2 oz vodka
5 oz soda water
Lime or lemon wedge (optional)
