Pink Whitney Vodka is a smooth 60-proof vodka with 30% alcohol by volume (ABV) made by the New Amsterdam Spirits Company of Modesto, California. This product got its start when the hosts of the podcast “Spittin’ Chicklets” started experimenting with mixing drinks and came up with the Pink Whitney recipe.
The new drink was so popular that the New Amsterdam Spirits Company collaborated with Bis and Whit (Paul Bissonnette and Ryan Whitney) by adding “notes of refreshing lemon” to their vodka to create a new product known as the Pink Whitney.
Pink Whitney, on its own, is delicious and enjoyed neat by many. But certain mixers enhance and add to that delightful pink lemonade flavor to create many different cocktails. The best mixers include all citrus fruit juices and carbonated sodas.
Here are the 12 best mixers for Pink Whitney.
1. Club Soda
Pink Whitney Vodka has a delicious pink lemonade flavor on its own. Adding club soda allows that flavor to shine through while reducing the alcohol bite.

Vodka and Coke is one of those traditional cocktails that folks have been enjoying for decades. This mixed drink, along with a Pink Whitney club soda and a Pink Whitney Sprite, will make a drink menu for your next party with enough variety to please everyone and make the bartending fast and easy.

Adding lemonade to Pink Whitney Vodka is another method of ramping up the tart taste. But, because lemonade also contains sugar, the dramatic effect of adding even more tart to this drink is tempered. This combination will serve the purpose of increasing the lemonade flavor and reducing the alcohol bite.
Pour one shot of Pink Whitney over ice into a rocks glass, fill with lemonade, stir to combine, and garnish with a lemon twist or a couple of maraschino cherries to dress it up. This is another quick and easy drink to mix.

For a fast and easy version of Pink Whitney and limeade, pour 2 ounces of the vodka over ice in a cocktail glass, add 2 ounces of limeade and 4 ounces of any lemon-lime soda. Garnish with a lime twist and a few fresh strawberries or raspberries for a refreshing drink that looks good enough to serve for that special occasion.
