We know how you feel about Mountain Dew. We know how you feel about drinking. Yes, you can combine the two, and here’s how. The Mountain Dew cocktail doesn’t actually involve any Mountain Dew. It just tastes like it. And it’s one of those fun drinks where you get to drop a shot glass into a mug. Suitable for chugging.
- 1 ounce vodka
- 1 ounce Midori
- Draft beer or more vodka
There are a couple of variations on this drink – one using beer, the other using vodka. The beer version definitely looks more like Mountain Dew, but a lot of people prefer the taste of the vodka version. This just means you’ll have to test each version, at least once, in order to figure out what you like. You might even want to organize a whole blind taste test with some friends, and see if you can’t get a marketing professor to accept the whole experiment as extra credit. If you remember to take notes, that is.
Fill a beer mug a little way with beer, then a little way with 7-up, and repeat the cycle until you’ve filled the glass with equal amounts of each. Fill a shot glass with the Midori. Drop the whole freakin’ shot glass into the beer.
Pour an ounce of vodka into a glass. Fill the glass up most of the rest of the way with 7-up. Drop in your Midori shot.
