5. Bitter Orange-Pickers Vodka

Staying in Middle Tennessee and even Nashville, after adding rum, we need to add another alcohol. You know there are still those Vodka lovers out there, even in the south.

And trust me, I understand. Vodka can mix well, it is perfect for those who like to watch their figures, and, if you’re trying to be bad, you can obviously hide it well.

So let’s throw in a little bit of vodka for those health conscious fans. This recipe and a complete image of it can be seen here.

The contents are simple:

2 part Pickers Blood Orange Vodka

3 part Soda Water

1/2 part Aperol

This is a perfect way to represent Big Orange Country. You’ve got a bitter orange flavor and enough carbonation to give the perfect mix of a low-calorie fruity flavor. For many sophisticated yankees who have moved to the south and embraced it, this could be a nice way to make you feel a little bit back at home.

Adding vodka to the whiskey, wine, rum, and moonshine already on the list as just another plus. Oh, and this is a good drink for college beginners who are of age, as vodka mixes pretty well with other things to hide the alcohol taste that they may not be used to yet.

This completes the something for everybody list that we are building here. At this point, it’s hard to find a cocktail on here that would not suit somebody, and we are nowhere near done with our work. So let’s keep moving on with great Tennessee Vols cocktails.
