This is a dessert cocktail like no other -- there isn't another vodka other than Zing that is made to taste like red velvet cake. Sure, you could use another cake-flavored vodka, but it would not be the same. Whether you hunt down Red Velvet Zing or happen across it and are looking for a way to mix it, this is a fun way to sample it.

Other than finding this uncommon vodka, this drink is a very easy one and plays off of the vodka's sweet taste. The mix is a simple one of muddled strawberries, vodka, lemon juice, and cream soda. The soda choice is also integral here and you will find it to be an excellent match to any of the cake or dessert vodkas.

What You'll Need

How to Make It

  1. Muddle two fresh strawberries in a cocktail shaker.
  2. Add the vodka, lemon juice, and ice and shake well.

  5. Garnish with a strawberry.
