The combination of WKD Blue and WKD Red creates a striking purple hue that is as pleasing to the eye as it is to the palate. The addition of vodka introduces a smooth, clean spirit base that amplifies the alcohol kick without overpowering the fruity and sweet tones provided by the alcopops. The flavour profile of the Purplepeoplepleaser is thus a playful balance between the sweet berry-like notes of the WKD components and the neutral spirituous backdrop of vodka. It's typically enjoyed cold, adding a refreshing element to the experience.

As for the vodka, any clear vodka will do, but you can adjust the quantity based on desired alcohol strength.
