Vodka Red Bull

Vodka Red Bull cocktail

The Vodka Red Bull cocktail was invented by bartender Johnnie Shand Kydd for an Austrian company called Red Bull in 1987. He got the idea after he noticed that one of his regular customers at a pub near Salzburg airport was mixing vodka with Red Bull to stay awake during flights. It typically consists of an energy drink such as Red Bull combined with one or more shots of vodka, though many variations exist.

Spirits Used:


2 ounces vodka
Red Bull


1. In a highball glass filled with ice, pour the vodka.
2. Top with Red Bull.
