These recipes are perfect for any occasion, and best of all, they only require a few simple ingredients.

What is Vodka?

Vodka is a clear distilled alcoholic beverage with a vodka alcohol content of around 40% ABV. It is made from fermented grains or potatoes, and has a relatively neutral flavour. This makes it the perfect base for cocktails - you can be as simple or extravagant as you desire!

Why Vodka Cocktails?

Vodka cocktails are popular because they are refreshing, easy to drink, and versatile. You can make vodka cocktails sweet, sour, or even savoury. They are also one of the easiest types of cocktails to make at home, since you don't need any special equipment or mixers. All you need is vodka, some ice, and your favourite ingredients!
