You don’t have to have exotic ingredients or a lot of time on your hands to make an excellent cocktail. Sometimes all you need is a premium vodka and one mixer.
We keep things naturally simple by creating GREY GOOSE ® Vodka with only two ingredients — the finest French winter wheat from Picardie and the finest limestone-filtered spring water, distilled only once to honour the flavours of these exquisite ingredients.
This silky smooth texture and unique depth of taste pairs nicely with a variety of mixers to provide you sophisticated cocktails in no time. Check out these easy vodka cocktails that contain minimal ingredients and maximum flavour.
With its nuanced, delicate taste, premium vodka is one of the most versatile spirits around. Its smooth flavour profile makes it an excellent base for mixing with various other liquids.
It pairs nicely with pretty much any fruit juice, such as orange juice, cranberry juice and grapefruit juice. Vegetable juices work as well, like tomato juice or a cold-pressed green juice. Lemonade vodka drinks are sweet yet tart palate pleasers. Vodka also goes well with sodas, whether that’s calorie-free sparkling water or a more sugary, flavoured type like cola or citrus soft drinks. You can also experiment with other more unexpected beverages, like hot chocolate or iced tea.
If you’re looking for a simple vodka cocktail, Grey Goose Essences are made for mixing. These vodkas are infused with real fruit and botanical essences and come in the flavours of Strawberry & Lemongrass, Watermelon & Basil and White Peach & Rosemary. Because the complexity of the flavour is already infused into the vodka, all you have to do is add soda water for a sophisticated taste.
You can also mix Grey Goose Vodka with soda for a classic cocktail with a smooth and nuanced taste. Or use lime-flavoured soda water as in our Vodka Lime and Soda Cocktail for more fruit flavour.
Many more classic cocktails are made by mixing vodka with fruit juice. The Grey Hound combines Grey Goose Vodka with grapefruit juice, while the Vodka Cranberry is a timeless classic. You can get creative and mix it with your favourite flavour.
While it’s true most martini cocktail recipes call for bitters, and a martini cocktail would feel naked without its garnish, you can technically make one with only two ingredients: just vodka and vermouth. You can also experiment to make one exactly to your taste at home by playing with the proportions.
Like the martini cocktail, this one is cheating the two-ingredient rule just a bit. You can technically make a French Mule with just vodka and ginger beer, but a little lime juice and ginger will also go a long way. It’s still an easy drink to make that tastes complex.
Two ingredients still too much? Then Grey Goose on the rocks may be your signature serve. It’s a crisp, uncompromised classic that lets our naturally sophisticated taste shine through. So it’s really a one-ingredient cocktail … unless you count the ice.
