Help! I’m a vodka virgin and don’t know where to start!

No need to panic because this is what we do! For the shy vodka drink beginner, you can’t go wrong with classic vodka cocktails. Our Vodka Martini is an easy vodka cocktail that makes even the least experienced drinkers feel like James Bond… or a Bond Girl. We don’t judge. But if martinis aren’t your thing or you just need a boost of Vitamin C, try a Screwdriver. Vodka and orange juice is a match made in heaven, and it is one of the best easy vodka cocktails you can make. Wanna get closer to the vodka drink origin? Whip up a Moscow Mule! This ginger bad boy is easy peasy… Lime squeezy. Because it’s simply vodka, ginger beer, and lime juice.

 

What the heck am I drinking?

We’ll teach you a thing, homeboy! Your favorite cocktail ingredient is distilled from fermented cereal grains and potatoes, so it sounds like a pretty delicious drink already. While standard vodkas in the U.S. have a minimum alcohol percentage of 40%, the European Union requires a minimum of 37.5%. It’s pretty common knowledge that vodka and vodka cocktails have origins in Eastern Europe. The popular drink has nicknames such as Vladimir Putin and Russian Water. But the names are actually not too far off because “vodka” comes from the Slavic word for “water.”
