I get mine wholesale. :-)


How much does it cost you??


$32 a case


That's Costco's price


Yup, Costco has wholesale prices.
Good thing is that I don't have to drive to Costco to get it. I have the little Red Bull van pull up to my place and ask me how many I need. I'm sure if I bought pallets of the stuff the Red Bull big wigs would give me a better deal.


Yep, that's called "economies of scale." First lesson is free :-D

Here's a fun drink though if you find that bottle of Goose a little hard on the wallet; get yourself a bottle of cheap vodka and a water filter, like a Brita. Run the vodka through the charcoal filter at least 3 or 4 times. Enjoy, you have yourself a much better vodka at half the price. Just don't use the same pitcher for vodka and water.... or your morning after might not be so pleasant.


Interesting idea and proper words on Vodka.

I find Stoli is both the most flavorful and roughest to drink among those you mention. It has greater body and flavor impact in the mid palette. It's interesting and I still don't know if I like it or not.

If all I'm interested in is a clean tasting quick buzz, I go for Vod and (dry) Cran.

Vodka is known as the cheapest and most inferior of the distilled alcohols.

very intresting read about the filtered vodka....any juice is a good mix. for getting "caught" purposes, i used to drink vodka and sprite in the sprite bottle and that was a nice trick. skyy always gave me a nasty hangover but i usually sustained my buzz much longer for some reason. Around here we just get a bottle of Gordon's vodka, probably the cheapest around, and Bankers Club :-P college.

Maybe its just me, but you can get decent enough vodka and not break the bank - I mean its $20 for a handle of smirnoff where I live...

12 oz. Crystal Light Lemonade

Looks good, does it have a name or something you just made up?
