What Does Pink Whitney Taste Like?

There is a new pink lady in town. From the beloved team at New Amsterdam Vodka comes a fun, colorful flavor of infused vodka, and she sure is pretty. The drink was named after the host of the Spittin Chiclets hockey podcast, Ryan Whitney.

Before you think Pink Whitney is all about the looks, the taste is quickly becoming a fan favorite. Described similar in taste to a lemon drop shot, this citrus-infused vodka is like a bottle of very boozy pink lemonade. A little sweet, a little tart, and completely delicious.

What is Pink Whitney?

Pink Whitney is a pink lemonade-infused vodka. It is light pink and costs around $15.00 for a 750 mL bottle. Don’t let the color fool you; this drink contains 30% alcohol by volume. Typical for infused liquors, it also packs a pretty punch with sugar content, so watch out for hangovers.

How to Drink Pink Whitney?

There are no wrong ways to drink Pink Whitney, but there are some tried and true methods to get you started.

Pink Whitney Shot

Before you grab the bottle from the cabinet and pour it, make sure you chill it well. If you don’t want to store the bottle in the freezer, you can add the liquor to a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until the outside is cold and frosty. For added coolness, place a shot glass into the freezer before pouring!

Pink Whitney Fizz

The makers at New Amsterdam recommend keeping things simple. Pour your well-chilled Pink Whitney into an old-fashioned glass and top with chilled club soda for a fun, fizzy drink. This easy, breezy drink goes back easy.
