The great thing about summer is that you have an excuse to try something refreshing, fruity and light to try and beat the heat. Perhaps nothing is better than a vodka cocktail, and there are few vodkas better for making a good vodka cocktail than Absolut Vodka.
Here at Liquor Barn we've got hundreds of different brands of vodka from all over the world. And while it's nice to splurge on a bottle of Grey Goose or Beluga Vodka every once in while, if you're trying to make a good vodka cocktail, all you really needs is a bottle of Absolut Vodka.
We carry 43 varaties of this famous Swedish vodka, so no matter what kind of vodka cocktail you're making, we have a perfect match for you. Here's five of our favorite Absolut Vodka infusions--each one of them makes a damn good vodka cocktail that you're sure to enjoy.
With a little bit of tartness and a little bit of sweetness, the combination of cherries and cranberries makes this Absolut Vodka infusion a solid pick if you want to make a Cosmopolitan. Mix in a little bit of Cointreau, lime, and a dash of cranberry juice with Absolut Cherrykran and you’ve got yourself a good vodka cocktail.
A bright yet spicy finish to this pepper-infused Absolut Vodka makes it a natural choice for every bruncher’s favorite boozy drink, the Bloody Mary. Pick out your favorite Bloody Mary mix and add a shot (or two) of Absolut Pepper into your glass, add your favorite garnishings, and start off your Sunday with a good vodka cocktail that leaves your mouth burning just a little bit.
Less intense and in your face, the delicate notes of vanilla that grace the palate when you sip Absolut Vanilla make the perfect complement to a Black Russian, a good vodka cocktail that’s pretty much as easy as it gets to make. Absolut Vanilla mixed with a bit of Kahlua or any other rich coffee liqueur is all you need to get the party started.
The Vodka Collins is a good vodka cocktail that tastes great, is refreshing, and isn’t very hard to make. Absolut Raspberry is the perfect vodka of choice to balance out this fizzy drink. Mix your favorite club soda or other sparkling water, add Absolut Raspberry, a twist of lemon or grapefruit, and some simple syrup for a classic summer cocktail.
Absolut Ruby Red
The little red dress of Absolut Vodka, Absolut Ruby Red is a can’t-lose choice for making the juicy Screwdriver cocktail. While fresh-squeezed orange juice is the classic mixer of choice for most, try mixing up a combination of citrus fruit such as grapefruit, orange and lime with Absolut Ruby Red for a more adult version of this notoriously collegiate party drink.
