Whenever I go out to dinner, my go-to drink before the meal is the elusive Vodka-7up. Well, it's not the actual drink that is elusive…… it's the name. (which is surprisingly lacking) Like most human beings , I am lazy when it comes to names. (Ever notice how every name on the universe will eventually get nicknamed down to to one syllable?) So getting back to my Vodka- 7up, I don't feel the need to spell out all of the ingredients every time, especially for a drink that is so standard. Then, the perfect name hit me like a ton of coasters……a V-7!!! This should stand the test of time. I kept to the formula by keeping it short and sweet while parodying of the V-8 Vegetable juice. (on a side note, I am a big fan of that drink as well) But most importantly, it is intuitive enough for bartenders to understand the ingredients. So I am officially calling out the peeps in our community to help me market this name. The next time you are in the mood for a Vodka-7up, call it a V-7. When the days come that bartenders don't stare back uncomprehendingly, that means the name is catching on!
