i make a drink

i prepare the drink "skinny bitch" and subsequently drink it

rationale

it seemed nice to have something tasting like water that made you drunk, since i already drink a lot of water

preparation

i assume that the water has no alcoholic content to begin with. the first thing to do would be to calculate that for x amount of water, i would need y amount of vodka.

vodka_ml = (water_ml)/(vodka_percentage-water_percentage)

then, since my target was the same amount of alcoholic water as i had normal water to begin with, i need to get the ratio and multiply with the original volume.

water_ml = (water_ml/(vodka_ml+water_ml))*water_ml
vodka_ml = (vodka_ml/(vodka_ml+water_ml))*water_ml

me, i had 1.5l of water and 40% vodka, aiming for a 3.5% skinny bitch. turns out i should use 1368 ml of water and 132 ml of vodka!
as a fun piece of trivia, that's 12 sek per 330 cl (1.56 usd per 12 oz).

result

i drank about half without thinking and it tasted like strawberry flavoured water (which is what i used as carrier liquid). success!!? i think no - because 3.5% is kind of a low alcoholic content. you'd have to drink the whole bottle to feel buzzed. i will repeat tomorrow with 5%, and if i'm feeling brave, without flavour to the water because that doesn't really taste good as it is.

ok once more in the opposite direction

ok so as i said step 2 is to make one without flavoured water and with a higher alcohol level, 5%. turns out to be a neat 1300 ml of water and 200 ml of vodka, fucking A, i got that in the fridge.

the problem with this one was that it was gross as heck, and maybe you can put some citrus juice in it, i dont know, maybe drink a bottle of wine and come back. it was nice and it wasn't. i feel like making a 5% one with like raspberry water would be cool but still on the grosser side. the 5% one also turned out pretty expensive (like 17 SEK per drink). i mean, i dont care enough to do this again probably. go drink something else.
