Vodka E – The party classic among the cocktails

Alcohol has been a popular stimulant and a firm cultural asset within our society for quite some time now, almost everywhere in the world. All kinds of mixed drinks are particularly popular – including vodka energy (“vodka E”).

It is a long drink that consists of vodka and virtually any energy drink. Because “Red Bull” is the energy drink most often used, this mixed drink is usually called “Vodka Bull”, “Vodka Red Bull”. Sometimes also “Flügerl” (as a reference to the advertising slogan “Red Bull gives you wings” or in German “Red Bull verleiht Flügel”).

Origin and effect

Today, it is practically impossible to imagine our bars and clubs without vodka E. The long drink always works with its fresh taste and its brightening effect. The triumph of Vodka E. began in 1987 when the energy drink brand called “Red Bull” saw the light of day.

After mixing this energy drink with vodka, it quickly became evident that vodka E has an effect that is almost perfect for a night of partying. Many people also compare the effect of this mixed drink with the effect of the (mostly illegal) drug cocaine.
