    Josh Dubois: Hi! I am Josh Dubois. Today, we are making vodka drinks, and right now I am going to show you how to make a Vodka Press. Now, this drink is not known by most bartenders, but its starting to gain popularity, and its really, really, really easy. You are going to take ice and fill up just a regular serving glass. Youre going to put one shot of vodka in or two ounces or four count, one, two, three, four. Then you are going to fill the rest of your glass with equal parts, club soda and equal part, 7Up or Sprite. Half, half, just a little bit more Sprite, because it got a little more soda in there. You are going to garnish this with a lime, and you are going to serve it with a straw, and thats how you make a Vodka Press. Coming up next, we are going to show you how to make a Cape Cod.
