Vodka Clear with a Twist

Vodka Clear with a Twist cocktail

The Vodka Clear with a Twist cocktail is a delicious and refreshing drink. It was invented in the 1950s by the bartender Jerry Thomas Jr. He said that he invented this cocktail because he wanted to create an alcohol-based cocktail with soda water. In the mid-20th century, Vodka was seen as an “exotic” liquor that attracted those who wanted to have some different from what they were used to drinking. The history of this cocktail has been popular ever since and continues to be today.

Spirits Used:


1½ ounce vodka
4 ounces flavored mineral water
Citrus twist


1. In a wine glass, stir the vodka and mineral water with ice.
2. Run a citrus twist around the rim of your glass and then drop it into the drink.
