Classic Vodka Cocktails

Vodka is a wallflower, with a kick. It's the actor who never steals the spotlight but always makes other performers shine. Clear and odorless as bottled water, vodka has little distinctive flavor of its own. But mixed into cocktails, it works magic, elevating the flavors of other ingredients.

A Few of Our Favorite Vodka Martinis

With the exception of the more classic-minded Dirty Martini, these recipes dare to be different. They toss dry vermouth overboard, and add a splash of the unexpected.

Our Favorite Vodka Cocktails

These cocktails range from the classic (Bloody Mary, anyone?) to the slightly subversive (Champagne and pickled ginger!).

Dessert Martinis

Care to drink your dessert? Try these sinfully sweet vodka martinis. 

Flavored Vodka Cocktails

Vodka also comes infused with all manner of tasty essences, from berries and citrus to spices and chocolate. These are a few of our favorites. 

D.I.Y. Vodka Infusions

Tom Petty said it: "The waiting is the hardest part." True, these recipes take some time. But if you're enthused about infused vodkas, making your own liqueurs is a fun and flavorful way to go. Try 'em--you won't be sorry. 

Party Shots! Juiced on Jell-O®

For those of us who like our booze but are trying to cut back on liquids, there will always be Jell-O® shots! But be careful! These pack a wiggly, jiggly little wallop.

    If you are lucky enough to live in the Pacific Northwest try 44 Degrees North Huckleberry vodka. Great berry flavor, not too sweet. Pinnacle Pomegranate also knocked my socks off-just mix it with club soda and a slice of lime.
