Strawberry Kiwi Vodka Drink Recipe With V8 Sparkling Energy

17 June

This summer, try a refreshing strawberry vodka cocktail made with Svedka strawberry vodka and V8 Sparkling Energy.  This is a light drink that's perfect for summer evenings.  You can make this as energy drink cocktails with V8 Sparkling Energy or use a sparkling flavored water instead.


After a long day of working in the heat, there's just something about sitting on the patio with a refreshing drink.  I'm partial to fruity drinks, and I really like this strawberry and vodka cocktail.


It's made with a can of V8 Sparkling Energy (or sub for any sparkling soda), so it's easy to make.  Both are shelf stable, so just grab them off the shelf and mix.





I added some freshly sliced kiwi and strawberry for looks, but you can definitely just use the strawberry vodka and the sparkling water to make a strawberry kiwi alcoholic drink.


This would be a fun drink for a small party too.  You can have different flavors of vodka or sparkling water.  Then let guests create their own energy drink cocktails. 


Have a bucket of ice and some sliced fruit, and you have pretty drinks with almost no effort during the party.


Strawberry Kiwi Alcoholic Drink Recipe


I love the simplicity of this strawberry and vodka cocktail.  I don't drink very often, so I don't want to keep special juices in the fridge.  They'd go bad before I could use them!


My kids and I both like sparkling waters.  So I keep some in the fridge for hot evenings when you need something cold and refreshing.  


They swim for a bit, and I sit at the patio table and play cards with the hubby or read at book.  I have been known to sip some kiwi strawberry vodka.

What Does Strawberry Vodka Taste Like?


I used Svedka Strawberry Guava vodka to make this strawberry and vodka cocktail.  You can use this brand or a strawberry vodka.  I'll also give directions below to make your own strawberry infused vodka so you can make strawberry vodka drinks.


Strawberry vodka has a pleasant taste.  It takes almost like vodka mixed with strawberry juice.  However, it still has the same alcohol content as regular vodka.





Can You Drink Flavored Vodka Straight?


Yes, you can drink a flavored vodka straight.  Just know that it has the same alcohol content as vodka, so drink responsibly whether you drink it straight or in strawberry vodka cocktail drinks.


What Do You Add to Strawberry Vodka?


You can drink strawberry vodka straight or use it for strawberry vodka drinks like this strawberry and vodka cocktail.  You can add lemon extract, almond extract, or vanilla extract  to give it more depth.


What Does Strawberry Vodka Mix Well With?


You can use flavored vodka to make strawberry vodka drinks.  It goes well with the following:


  • Lemonade
  • Sparkling water
  • Italian soda
  • Orange juice
  • Margarita mix
  • Grapefruit juice
  • Crushed fruit or crushed berries
  • Triple sec
  • Lemon lime soda
  • Fruit flavored soda


Can I Make Strawberry Vodka?


Yes, you can make strawberry vodka to make strawberry vodka drinks.  To make strawberry vodka, you will need a 750 ml bottle of plain vodka and 14 ounces of strawberries.  You can also add 2 tablespoons of fine sugar if you want.


Then do the following:


  • Wash and dry the strawberries.  Remove the green tops and slice them in half.  
  • Place the cut berries in a large container.  Add the sugar and vodka.  Stir to combine.  
  • Let sit for 3 or 4 days.  Stir it daily to help the infusion.
  • Strain out the berries through cheesecloth and place your strawberry vodka in bottles and seal.  


Although vodka is a great preservative, I recommend storing your homemade strawberry vodka in the fridge for up to six months.


What is the Healthiest Mixer for Vodka?


Many strawberry kiwi alcoholic drinks are full of sugar from juices.  However, there are healthier options including:



Is V8 Sparkling Energy Good For You?


V8 Sparkling Energy is a healthier option for an energy drink.  The cans are BPA free, and they have half the sugar as other energy drinks.


I like using V8 to make energy drink cocktails because it has a serving of vegetables and fruit, and they are non GMO and don't have artificial flavors or colors.  There's no added sugar, and there's only 60 calories per serving.  Plus they have B vitamins.





How Much Caffeine is in V8 Sparkling Energy?


V8 Sparkling Energy has 80 grams of caffeine.  If you're limiting caffeine, then look for another sparkling strawberry drink.  Sparkling Ice has a good sparkling strawberry kiwi drink.


Is V8 Sparkling Energy an Energy Drink?


Yes, V8 Sparkling Energy is an energy drink, so you can use it for energy drink cocktails.  It's a healthier energy drink, but be mindful of the caffeine.
