Cheeky Vimto is an alcoholic cocktail. Primarily drunk in nightclubs rather than bars,[1] the "Cheeky Vimto" is a popular drink among Britain's younger population.

Ingredients

Despite the name, the soft drink Vimto is not part of the cocktail. Instead it is made up of one or two shots of ruby port and one 275ml bottle of Blue WKD some people also add vodka to this drink .[2] However, the resulting mixture does taste very much like a regular Vimto; hence the name "Cheeky Vimto". Many establishments call it by other names, such as 'cheeky V', in order to avoid infringing the trademark of the soft drink.[citation needed]

A variant, Extra Cheeky Vimto, replaces one of the port shots with neat vodka.[3]
