Is vodka your favorite spirit? Then you will want to save these 30+ recipes for vodka cocktails using neutral and flavored vodkas.
In 2021, vodka accounted for about a third of all sales of spirits in the United States by volume. This makes it the highest selling for the past 12 years, but whiskey is quickly gaining on it! Vodka is so popular because of its neutral flavor that makes it perfect for mixing into cocktails.
And just to note, my favorites are either Grey Goose or Ketel depending on what is available. They make great mixed drinks in my opinion.
Since vodka has a neutral flavor, there are numerous vodkas that have been infused with their own flavor. This adds a whole new list of cocktails you can make. Fruit flavors are popular.
Other popular flavors are similar to what you might find in your local coffee shop: espresso, caramel, vanilla, sweet tea and whipped cream.
