What kind of alcohol is in Pink Whitney?
Pink Whitney is vodka-based. New Amsterdam Vodka makes flavored vodkas, creating the perfect balance of bitter vodka and sweet fruitiness.
Is Pink Whitney a lot of alcohol?
Yes, this drink contains a higher percentage of alcohol than most other drinks. To give you an idea, the average beer has an alcohol percentage of 5%. The Pink Whitney percentage, on the other hand, is a whopping 30%, meaning you’ll feel the effects very quickly and will only need a few shots to get wasted.

This is the ingredient list: Water, Grain neutral spirits, Cane sugar, Natural flavors, Citric acid, Potassium citrate, Anthocyanins, and Allura red.
Can you drink Pink Whitney straight?
Yes. Many people prefer to just take shots of Pink Whitney since it’s already sweet (about 6.6g of added sugar compared to regular vodka), which balances out the cutting flavor of vodka.
However, it’s more fun to create your own recipes and play bartender.
Does Pink Whitney get you drunk fast?
It will take the average person about six shots of this liquor to get drunk. Regular vodka has a higher alcohol content and, therefore, only takes four shots for someone to feel drunk.
Why is Pink Whitney so popular?
The adult “Pink Drink” went viral after Ryan Whitney revealed that he had teamed up with Barstool Sports and New Amsterdam Vodka to create the sweet drink after previously mixing pink lemonade and vodka on his own.
It gained momentum quickly on Twitter and Instagram and is now carried in every bar, club, and college party in the U.S.
How strong is Pink Whitney?
Since this drink is made with fresh pink lemonade that lowers the overall alcohol content, it’s not as strong as straight-up vodka. You will certainly feel the burn, but it’s much less intense and is more enjoyable for those with lower alcohol tolerances and those who prefer sweeter drinks.
What do you mix with Pink Whitney?
Most people prefer lemon-lime soda, club soda, pineapple juice, lemonade, cola, or even orange juice.
Does Pink Whitney need to be refrigerated after opening?
No, you don’t have to refrigerate the bottle after opening the lid. Because vodka has such a high alcohol content, it’s impossible for it to harbor bacteria or mold.
How many shots are in a bottle of Pink Whitney?
One bottle has approximately 16 shots.
How long does Pink Whitney last once opened?
Fun fact: unopened liquor will last indefinitely. However, once opened, the water will begin to evaporate, creating a strong, strong-smelling, bitter drink that is no longer safe to intake. This happens about one to two years after opening with a mostly full bottle, so you have some time to use it up. A half-empty bottle will last about six months after opening.
Does Pink Whitney have lots of sugar?
One shot of this fruity lemon lime vodka contains 6.6g of sugar. If you’re taking six shots to get drunk, that’s 6.6 x 6 = 39.6g of sugar. To put it in perspective, the suggested Daily Value of sugar is no more than 24g for the average woman and no more than 36g for the average man. This means that six shots contain more sugar than recommended for both men and women. So, yes, it does contain a lot of sugar.
