Whether it’s for a date night, a work happy hour or an outing with friends, there are so many delicious cocktails available that it can be hard to choose. A premium vodka becomes the canvas for crafting a wide array of exquisite cocktails. When you have a lot to pick from, it can even feel a little overwhelming. Or maybe you want to branch out a bit beyond your usual, but don’t know how.
If you find yourself standing at the bar, pondering the menu, consider these popular bar drinks that not only showcase the quality of GREY GOOSE® Vodka but also match what you’re looking for.
First up is the quintessential vodka cocktail: the Dry Vodka Martini Cocktail. This storied drink is a sophisticated choice, and one that is surprisingly simple to make. It’s just two ingredients — vodka and vermouth. While you can always simply request a dry vodka martini cocktail (made with Grey Goose, of course) you can also fine tune the drink to your taste preferences. Request a Wet Martini Cocktail for more vermouth and a sweeter taste, or a Dirty Martini Cocktail for olive brine and a saltier, umami taste. Read all about how to order a martini cocktail at a bar or restaurant for even more tips.
Perhaps the most popular drink to order at a bar is the Vodka Soda. It’s simple, and nearly all bars and restaurants have it. It falls on the lighter side of cocktails and it lets the nuanced taste of Grey Goose Vodka shine through. Even more simple is a one-ingredient option: Grey Goose Vodka on the Rocks. Whether you request it mixed with soda or on the rocks, choosing a flavored vodka or GREY GOOSE® Essences can keep things simple while also adding a burst of fruity flavor.
If you’re ordering in the daytime, a spritz is an especially appropriate choice. A vodka spritz contains vodka, soda water (or something else bubbly) and fruit juice, typically served over ice, for a refreshing tasting, fizzy drink. We especially love the Le Grand Fizz, featuring lime juice and elderflower liqueur, and the Fresh Cut, starring flavors of grapefruit and vermouth.
There are a wide range of vodka cocktails served in martini cocktail glasses that, while not technically martini cocktails, are just as delicious. Many come in fruity flavors, such as the Lemon Drop or the Appletini. The French Martini Cocktail contains pineapple juice and Chambord® raspberry liqueur, and the Cosmopolitan features flavors of orange, cranberry and lime.
Many drinks traditionally made with other spirits can be made with vodka. For example, instead of your go-to whiskey old fashioned, why not try our Grey Goose Old Fashioned made with vodka? Big fan of margaritas? Branch out and try our L’Orange Tommy’s Margarita. While a Brazilian caipirinha traditionally uses the spirit cachaça, you can request it be made with vodka for our take on the cocktail — the Caipiroska. Check out all the ways you can substitute vodka in for rum, tequila and other spirits.
If you’re wanting to explore some other classic cocktails, you have an extensive list to choose from, based on what you’re in the mood for. Here are some classic vodka-based cocktails that any bartender will know by name and be able to whip up in no time.
Choosing the right vodka drink for you is like choosing your own adventure. You get to pick a serve that complements your taste and style. With so many good choices, you really can’t go wrong. So now the next time you find yourself at the bar, you have some great ideas of what to order to start exploring a world of flavor.
