Red Bull and _____.
Wikipedia offers this helpful review of Red Bull's uses as a mixer:
Red Bull mixed with vodka was first created by Parker Hallam in Dallas, Texas, at a bar called Soul II Soul located on Lower Greenville. It is known by several names, in some areas it is called an "Eyeopener" or "Dagger" while along the East Coast of the United States, it is known as a "Birch" or when mixed with Peach Tree Schnapps, a "Birch Tree". In the American Midwest it's known as simply "Red Bull & Vodka", "Vodka Bomb", "V-Bull", or in Chicago, a "Klenfield." It has also been called a "Raging Bull" in the Austin, Texas area. In some areas of Canada, a shot glass of RedBull or similar energy drink is filled and then dropped into a glass o vodka, which is promptly drunk. This is known as a One-Armed Scissor. In Switzerland it is called "Gummibäärli" which means Gummi Bear. In Turkey, it is called "Votka Enerji," which means Vodka Energy. When mixed with cherry vodka, it's known as a "Cherry Bomb." Mixed with Jägermeister is it called a "Bull Blaster," "JägerBlaster" or "JägerBomb", "JägerBomber", "Flying Hirsch" and "U-Boot" in some parts of Germany." When served with the Jägermeister still in a shot glass, it is called a "Train Wreck" or "Depth Charge." Mixed with whiskey, it is called "Bull's Balls" or "Night Bandit." When mixed with Hennessy it is known as "Crunk Juice" or "Wavy Juice." When dropped in Rum, it has been called a tweaking Puerto Rican in reference to the energy boost and term associated with being on speed. When mixed with tequila and vodka, it is sometimes known as a "TVR" in the UK and Tokyo metropolitan area of Japan where the name is recognised as referring to the TVR sports car company. When served with Vodka and Cranberry juice, it is known as, "VCR." Detroiters may order a "Black-Bull" - which would be a Red Bull mixed with Guinness Stout. In South Texas and Mexico when mixed with vodka, especially of the Absolut brand, it is called Absolut Bullshit. "Dave" is the name given to 1/2 pint lager, vodka and red bull, mixed in a pint glass, in Bradford, UK.Future anthropologists will be grateful, no doubt.
