Cocktails made with vodka are great because they’re so versatile. You can combine it with lots of other types of alcohol, fruit, certain vegetables, or juices. There are also a variety of flavored vodkas that make the cocktail ingredient combinations nearly endless, as well. But, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut whenever classics like Vodka and Tonics, or Screwdrivers are so delicious. If you choose a quality vodka, even shots of it are good! So, this list is going to be a unique combination of various ingredients to broaden your horizons and ensure that you not only get out of a rut if you’re in one, but make sure you’re never in one again!
This tasty drink is perfect for coffee-lovers. It doesn’t actually include espresso, but you could easily add some for an additional coffee punch. You should either chill the espresso or allow it to cool to room temperature before adding it. The drink is creamy, and tastes a bit like a vanilla frappe’.
What’s better than cake-flavored vodka? A drinkable version of a pineapple upside-down cake. With a bit of pineapple juice, and a splash of grenadine syrup, the drink is sweet enough to resemble the real thing. You’ll definitely be asking for more, with a cherry on top.
These are a hit at any party, and pretty simple to create. They’re a fantastic alternative to Jell-o shots, which means they’re sure to please guests that aren’t fans of fruity drinks. Chocolate pudding shots are a great way to re-live your childhood, but are a little more decadent than your average Snack-Pack pudding cup.
Vodka cocktails don’t have to either be fruity or of a dessert variety, and this drink proves that. It’s a pickle-lover’s dream, containing both pickle juice and a whole pickle spear as garnish. It’s definitely not your average martini, and it’s probably not for those who detest pickles, but it’s a treat in a glass for those of us who do.
This is a fantastic way to add a bit of whimsy to your drinks, whether served at a party or for solo sipping. Instead of rimming the glass with the typical sweets, you rim them with pop rocks. This makes them a good way to prank unsuspecting sippers, as well.
This is a classic, and a favorite at brunches. It’s considered to be an excellent hangover cure by many people. I like mine made with V-8, as opposed to the traditional plain tomato juice because it adds a bit more flavor to the mix, so you can try that if you want a unique twist on the classic. With all of the vegetables in it, it’s probably better for you than most cocktails, and it tastes great, as well.
This drink is incredibly complex in flavor, without being hard to make. It’s sweet, tart, spicy and cool all at the same time. You’ll likely notice something new every time you take a sip!
This classic drink is associated with beaches and relaxation, but you can enjoy one and relax anywhere. It packs a lot of fruity flavor, a bit of alcohol punch, and the recipe is fairly easy to tinker with and customize. It’s no wonder that they’re served at bars around the world!
There are lots of ways to dress up vodka. It’s one of the easiest types of alcohol to create cocktails with. And the cocktails on this list showcase that pretty well, with drink ingredients ranging from chocolate and coffee desserts to fruity drinks, vegetables, and even one comprised of mostly pickles. So, you’re sure to find one to suit you, and they’re all sure to be a hit at parties!
