What is a Vodka Press

“Press” is a common bar term referring to equal parts lemon-lime soda (such as 7up or Sprite) and Club Soda. This duo combined with vodka served over ice will produce a refreshing Vodka Press.

How to Serve

A Vodka Press is typically served in a small glass on the rocks or over ice. A lime wedge makes the perfect garnish by adding a dash of extra flavor and a splash of color.
