What Soda Do You Use With Whipped Cream Vodka?

by Shailynn Krow

Whipped cream flavored vodka is smooth, silky and tastes like freshly whipped heavy cream. While it works well in cocktails, not everyone has the time or patience to make a perfect cocktail. Pairing soda with whipped cream vodka is quick, simple and gets the job done -- and no one will know you were in a rush. For each drink, use one shot of vodka for every 8 ounces of soda.

1. Orange Soda

If you like orange creamsicles, you’ll enjoy orange soda and whipped cream vodka. Because this drink serves best cold, chill the vodka in the freezer or drop in a few ice cubes before serving. If you’re out of orange soda you can use orange juice, but you’ll lose out on the fizz associated with orange soda’s carbonation.

2. Root Beer

The nostalgic flavor of a root beer float comes to life when you pair whipped cream vodka and root beer soda. There's no need to add ice cream because the whipped cream vodka provides the creamy flavor for you.

3. Lemon-Lime Soda

A lemon or lemon-lime soda creates a refreshing drink that works in both summer and winter. The flavor will remind you of a creamy key lime pie or creamy lemon pie.

4. Classic Sodas

Diet or regular cola creates a cream soda effect when paired with whipped cream vodka. Add 1 tablespoon of cream for every 8 ounces of soda for a creamier texture and flavor. Instead of using ice cubes, used crushed ice.

5. Other Ideas

If you’re out of soda, there are plenty of quick fixes to pair with your whipped cream vodka. Coffee with whipped cream vodka makes a mock Irish coffee. Mix whipped cream vodka with an energy drink to create an unexpected spin on a bar classic. Cranberry juice pairs nicely with whipped cream vodka and can help tame the tart flavor of the cranberries.
