Vodka Shots & Shooters

Vodka is a top favorite base for boozy drinks because its versatility makes it usable in almost anything. Whether you’re in hardcore Party Mode with Kamikaze Shots or celebrating birthdays with vodka jello shots, our vodka shot recipes have your back. We even have you covered for brunch dates and post-party blues with our bite-sized Bloody Mary Shots and their even sexier variations. So buckle up, buttercup. Because Tipsy Bartender is your guide to this wild vodka shots ride.

What the heck am I drinking?

Vodka 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 has 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.”

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 shots beginner, you can’t go wrong with the classic Kamikaze Shot. This easy, three ingredient vodka shot recipe combines vodka, triple sec, and lime juice. It’s super easy, absolutely delicious, and a great place to start. But if you’re more of an edible alcohol fan, wiggle on over to our vodka jello shots. We have more than a few, but another great recipe to kick things off is our Screwdriver Jello Shots. The Screwdriver is a classic vodka drink for a reason, so take your OJ bad boy and just add gelatin. Is it really that easy? Why yes, it is. Oh, and for our vegan baddies, we have a Vegan Jello Shot recipe too!
