P.I.N.K. Vodka: A Rush Without Red Bull
In a world where you can currently only get a liquor buzz and a head rush by mixing your vodka with an energy drink, things are about to change. We've just stumbled across p.i.n.k. vodka, an interesting-sounding spirit that comes pre-infused with caffeine and guarana. What does this mean? It means we can now drink our vodka straight out of the bottle and have a wide-awake drunk, with none of that energy drink BS.
Of course, the stuff has a strike against it - the fact that the name makes it seem like it's made specifically for fabulous androids. We don't mind, though - we're not exactly the target market so we'll just keep it in a brown paper bag as we chug it down. Or, we'll just pretend we're doing a physical challenge every time we drink it.
Read on for more details:
This month, p.i.n.k, the first 80-proof super-premium vodka flawlessly infused with caffeine and guarana hits the shelves, filling a void in the spirits category. Made from the finest handcrafted vodka from Holland, p.i.n.k. contains a flavorless caffeine and guarana formula that does not disrupt the vodka’s exceptional quality.
The brand concept for p.i.n.k. emerged from the growing trend of mixing alcohol with energy drinks. Consumers wanted a completely versatile vodka that provides the intensity without the unwanted flavor of popular energy drinks. David Mandell, president and CEO, High Energy Holdings, LLC created p.i.n.k. to fulfill the need.

You can get your hands on it for $40, but just think about all the cash you'll save on Red Bull. Learn more at the pink vodka site.

P.I.N.K. owes us a free bottle. We bought a bottle for 4 girls and it took 30 mins and a drill just to get a sip out of the gray cap. You have to shake it like a bottle of ketchup. It tastes great w/ cranberry however, not as bittersweet as we when we were so excited to try it.
P.I.N.K. Rips off their vendors. They don't pay their bills. Two vendors that I know of are owed $4500 to the first, then $7500 to the other.
They're ruining our economy.
Great packaging! Glad it's girled' for us (if it was). Why should everything be masculined? Like we like that as you whine about this? See the off-ness'. Girls mean fun...so be it! Must everything be tough and fighting or flat and straight or boring? The world is not just for you. Girls are more fun and 'sexy' with something to celebrate with that matches them and the way everyone should be. There are enough negative problems in the world - losers are afraid of smiles and laughter - be as beautiful and silly as you want to be when you can. And why so sensitive to a color? Just another color of the sunrise/sunset...Don't want taurine meat protein in my drink.
It seems like a great drink. I'm excited 2 try it but on recent t.v ads for those 5 hr energy shots they gave negitive effects that can be caused by guarana... huh wonder the truth behind that.
Well aren't you just a little ray of sunshine...though we really can't argue with you about the glut of vodkas in the marketplace...
Another mediocre vodka, adding to the insane glut of trendy vodkas crowding up the market lately. Not to mention that mixing caffeine and alcohol is bad for you and can lead to alcohol poisoning a lot quicker...shouldn't be pushing this crap.
Lighten up everyone, they had an idea that is simple and fresh. Most of you would'nt take a chance and are frankly jealous of success. Grow up and give it a chance, I can see many beautiful women pushing the product and who knows maybe a PINK bikini contest soon to follow. Its all about the marketing. Good luck on your endeavor!

How much caffeine & guarana are infused in the drink per mL or ounce? Also is it dangerous for people with heart problems? Any warning about people trying to mix it with red bull or any other stimulant? I heard combined intake of ephedra and guarana resulted in clients ending up in the ER? Just curious what health implications consumers should consider before taking their first sip? I dont see any warning on your website... It would be good to know.
I get the greatest drunk EVER with pink. Period. I could dance all night long!!!
Hey Christy, P.I.N.K sounds very unique. I would love to talk to you about the vodka in more detail. We would love to take a P.I.N.K for a "Squeeze"...
Hey Christy, if you read this email me, I want to talk to you about sponsorship with P.I.N.K in NYC nightlife events.
Christy needs to check her spelling. The name of the other energy vodka is ZYGO not ZYGOT. The main problem I have with p.i.n.k. besides the girly name is the price. I live in Pennsylvania and the product costs $48 here. It makes more sense for me to buy a bottle of Grey Goose and a sixer of Red Bull before buying this product. Well, I do have another pet peeve..... Where is the taurine? $48 and no taurine? This is a lot of money for caffeine and hype.
Christy speaks the truth. Pink rocks--if you're man enough to drink it. You go girl!
We are inerested in having you as a sponsor...
at this time we are using other brands of vodka...and would love to have your brand pink vodka in each of our cars...Please contact us at the above e-mail or call us at 516-798-2927
My name is Christy and I am the vp of high energy holdings...aka, p.i.n.k. Vodka
First of all to the guy who called us "corporate slobs"..??..hahaha actually we are completely the opposite, its just my good friend David and I who started and run the company with our good friend Dan...that's it, so uhm, Not quite corporate ;) and yup, david did work for the government, he left his position as the chief of staff of the FAA to begin p.i.n.k.,and I was the brand mgr for Patron tequila.With his experiences with fda and ttb regulations,licenses etc etc, and my experience with top quality spirits, the combo is actually pretty awesome! And p.i.n.k. is DEFINITELY not like zygot because p.i.n.k. has NO flavor and NO color....we are just a super premium, super smooth vodka, and (unlike zygot), we are actually 80 proof, like a true vodka should be ;) try it...bet you'll love it!
All my best
We found it online at Garnet Wine, and it'll run you just a hair over 40 bucks a bottle...though we're not sure how much the shipping will add. We'll keep digging to see if we can find other places to purchase.
can you buy p.i.n.k. online?
I met this David Mandell at a party for the rapper DMX in Manhattan. He used to work for the government and now he wants to sell vodka? Come on, people! Don't believe the circus act.
I drank Pink this weekend and it was awesome!! this is the best it tastes great and I never got tired!
Pink is so wack. Zygo is the one and only in Energy vodka. Try again corporate slobs!
checking on availability in georgia or/and internet
please call 706 226 3160
i got here by googling pink energy vodka but also learned of a pink energy drink made by another company.
P.I.N.K.? I guess this is being marketed to women. Is Zygo an energy vodka as well?
OK. The packaging looks good and I am sure it is good vodka but this is nothing new. Zygo (www.fuelchange.com) has been out for three years now. Zygo has taurine and PINK does not. Make mine taurine.
