    need help from a \"northerner\" a canadian EH...

    I'm looking for.....

    A drink that I found last spring in Canada- its called

    "V"....its a clear bottle- with a silver and black label- the V is black inside a silver circle..

    I know it was made with Vodka- but I'm not sure what else is in it.

    It tastes like a Vodka Collins- and is DA BOMB...

    Can someone see if they can find it- if they still make it etc...

    It came in 6 packs again- if I remember- I only bought 12 cause I wasnt sure if I'd like it- and wudn't ya know it - I've never had anything even come near how close this is to a vodka collins-....

    You wouldn't be referring to "Vex" coolers, would you?

    My wife likes Vex too...plenty of different flavors. I've had a few when there is no beer in the house/forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif They go down way too easy and sneak up on ya. I'm pretty sure they're near 8%...

    can ya grab a digi shot of one of the bottles? I'm not sure if it's VEX- I thought it was just a "V" on the bottle- but after 12 of them who can remember what they even tasted like!

    thanks

    By golly that might be it-

    but it was a lime green/yellow color- like a vodka collins- picture vodka, sprite/seltzer water, and sour mix.....

    Looks like I gotta get me to canada here pretty quick....ah its only a 3 hour drive....

    Brandy:

    If it was indeed Vex, I'm willing to bet the flavor you described is "Vex Hard Ice". They're kind of like a citrus vodka cooler.

    That ain't my fridge brother.../forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gifI spent some time doing a google search until I found a crappy pic. Vex is made in Oliver BC...and the asshats don't have a website if you can believe it. The pic was robbed from some site that does reviews on differnet drinks.

    Brandy, I think there are at least 4 flavors of Vex...all sorts of different colors.

    NO NO NO!!! A case up here is a 12 pack. 24 would be called a "flat".

    If you're gonna drink Canadian stuff you gotta use the proper lingo, eh!!!
