If you need a drink stat, try your hand at these fuss-free sips

Here are 10 vodka cocktails you can whip up in no time.

Apparently, making vodka is no easy feat and can become obsessive for some. One reason is that the base ingredients can vary from corn to wheat and even grapes, which all react differently during the fermentation and distillation processes. After all is said and done, we get to reap the benefits. Plus, with creative flavored selections such as watermelon, cotton candy, and ruby red grapefruit, our favorite drinks can be recreated each night of the week (though we don’t necessarily recommend sipping on vodka every night). With such possibilities, read on to find which of these quick and easy ‘water of life’ mixtures suits your at-home happy hour.


10 Classic Vodka Cocktails That Will Match Any Mood

For when you want a drink that hardly tastes like vodka.

You can have your vodka two ways. The first way is bitterly cold, in a glass by itself, tasting unapologetically of vodka. The second way is in a mixed drink, only very, very faintly tasting like itself. That's the journey you've chosen for yourself today, and these are the cocktails that travel that ground best. Pick the one that suits your mood&mdashcontemplative (the Martini), high-spirited (the Moscow Mule), hungover (what else? the Bloody Mary)&mdashand gather your ingredients. Here's to the most basic and easy-drinking liquor.

10 Classic Vodka Cocktails That Will Match Any Mood

For when you want a drink that hardly tastes like vodka.

You can have your vodka two ways. The first way is bitterly cold, in a glass by itself, tasting unapologetically of vodka. The second way is in a mixed drink, only very, very faintly tasting like itself. That's the journey you've chosen for yourself today, and these are the cocktails that travel that ground best. Pick the one that suits your mood&mdashcontemplative (the Martini), high-spirited (the Moscow Mule), hungover (what else? the Bloody Mary)&mdashand gather your ingredients. Here's to the most basic and easy-drinking liquor.

    The entertaining information

  2. Darrius

    The portal is excellent, I recommend it to everyone I know!

  3. Mikatilar

    Discussions are always good, but remember that not every opinion can be trusted. Often in very serious and complex topics, comments are inserted by children, sometimes it leads to a dead end. No doubt, it happens that the same schoolchildren can give good advice. But this is more the exception than the rule.

  4. Dracul

    I'm sorry, but, in my opinion, mistakes are made. Write to me in PM, it talks to you.
