Vodka Cocktails that are quick and easy perfect for at home! Bartenders often overlook vodka as a serious cocktail ingredient due to it’s relatively neutral flavour profile but this very flavour profile allows flexibility when mixing. Vodka’s neutral taste allows it to be paired with a wide range of other flavours including sweet, sour, savoury and spicy – to name a few. Vodka is an approachable spirit – meaning drinkers that aren’t overly adventurous, that may not like herbaceous or bold bitter flavours will find vodka an easy and obvious choice when mixing.

HOW TO MAKE AN APPLETINI WITH MAPLE SYRUP
There are numerous variations on the Appletini recipe such as our previously shared Appletini recipe which makes for a citrusy, zesty Appletini. This version of the Appletini utilises cloudy apple juice that has a crisp and wholesome apple flavour which is also full of antioxidants unlike clear apple juice. The apple flavour works hand in hand with the rich tasting maple syrup.

INGREDIENTS
- 45mL Vodka (1½ oz)
- 45mL Cloudy Apple Juice (1½ oz)
- 5mL Fresh Lemon Juice (⅙ oz)
- 5mL Maple Syrup (⅙ oz)

HOW TO MAKE A COSMOPOLITAN
Made infamous from the TV series Sex in the City but this cocktail has been around long before, dating back to the 70s. It is quite similar to a Cranberry Cooler with the addition of Cointreau and served neat instead of tall on ice. It also bears a close resemblance to a Kamikaze cocktail.

INGREDIENTS
- 45mL Vodka (1½ oz)
- 15mL Cointreau (½ oz)
- 45mL Cranberry Juice (1½ oz)
- 10mL Fresh Lime Juice (⅓ oz)

HOW TO MAKE A CAIPIROSKA
Make sure you use plenty of ice, the right dilution makes this cocktail a winner!

INGREDIENTS
- 60mL Vodka (2 oz)
- ¾ to 1 Lime
- 2-3 Teaspoons of Sugar

HOW TO MAKE A WHITE RUSSIAN

INGREDIENTS
- 45mL Vodka (1½ oz)
- 30mL Kahlua (1 oz)
- Dash of Milk (or Cream)

HOW TO MAKE A SEA BREEZE
The Sea Breeze cocktail is a simple, vodka mixed drink. A good measure of vodka is mixed with tart cranberry juice and subtly bitter fresh grapefruit juice. Shake and strain over fresh ice or if you're in a rush, simply build it within your collins glass.
A slightly tart yet refreshing vodka cocktail for summer sipping!

INGREDIENTS
- 60mL Vodka (2 oz)
- 90mL Cranberry Juice (3 oz)
- 60mL Grapefruit Juice (2 oz)
