1. Martinis Recipe with Vodka

There is some debate on how the popular recipe for martinis got its name. The first theory is that name derived from the Martini brand of vermouth. Another popular theory suggests it evolved from a cocktail called the Martinez served sometime in the early 1860s at the Occidental Hotel in San Francisco

Either way, we all know that the Martini gained unparalleled popularity from the 007 Movies and books.

3. Vodka Cranberry Recipe (Cape Cod)

The Cape Cod, our Cape Codder cocktail was created by the Ocean Spray company in the 1940’s. This simple vodka cranberry cocktail has been a smash hit since its creation.

One of the more simple mixed drinks, the vodka cranberry typically consists of vodka, cranberry juice, and a lime wedge… But we wanted to cut the calories and jazz it up a bit for this recipe.

Easy Cocktails with Vodka

Thanks to the help of club soda we were able to lower the calories and still supply you with a big drink!

Often people find the combination of the cranberry juice and the lime to be acidic, the club soda helps calm that a little and gives the drink a lovely fizzy quality that seams much more “top shelf” than a simple cocktail recipe.

4. Vodka Watermelon Cocktail Recipe

Vodka and watermelon make a wonderful combination. This easy cocktail is great for hot summer days.

Watermelon is both low in calories and great for replenishing water in the body, which is probably why this cocktail is less likely to give you a hangover.

Easy Cocktails with Vodka

This vodka watermelon cocktail also calls for just 1 ounce of vodka… you could absolutely add a second ounce. But I think you will find this drink is perfectly balanced as is.

We love easy alcoholic drinks to make at home, and though you’ll need a blender for this one, we still think it’s easy and worth the extra 2 minutes of work.

When you freeze watermelon, it gets sweeter… So if your watermelon is less than amazing, cut it up and freeze it in ice cube size chunks before adding to the blender.

My favorite… the vodka tonic! But all the calories in tonic water means I can’t have it very often. That is until I found this all natural, zero calorie tonic water!
