The Best Cocktail To Order On A Budget




Cocktails don’t get much easier to mix than the vodka soda, which consists of an ounce and a half pour of vodka (go with a bar’s well brand for the lowest price point) blended with 10 ounces of soda water, garnished with a lime or lemon wedge for a little citrus kick (per South Bend Tribune). A vodka soda has the added benefits of being low in calories, carbs, and sugar. And unlike actual soda, soda water is hydrating, and that slice of fruit on the glass provides a small boost of vitamin C.

Obviously, the health benefits are relative since you are drinking booze after all, but you could be doing a lot worse with your alcoholic choice. If you want to take it a step further, you can even order a vodka soda with gluten-free vodka brands such as Tito’s, Blue Ice, or Crystal Head (via Byrdie). Though once you move further away from an establishment’s house vodka your expenses will rise accordingly and the whole cocktail on a budget approach starts to go out the window.

Also, if you’re worried about buying vodka because you think it might support a certain vodka-loving nation, no need to fret. Only 1.2% of U.S. vodka imports come from Russia. Major brands such as Absolut, Skyy, Svedka, and Grey Goose all hail from other countries (via USA Today).
