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 jungle juice, celebrating birthdays with jello shots, or having a classy cocktail dinner with the in-laws, our vodka drink recipes have your back. We even have you covered for brunch dates and post-party blues with our sexy Bloody Mary recipe and its even sexier variations.
One of the coolest and unique things about vodka is that it takes well to pretty much anything. Fruit juice, soda, other liquors, pasta sauce. You name it. For instance, let’s say you’re really enjoying your mocha frappuccino, but you kinda wish it was spiked. BAM! Tipsy has a recipe for a Spiked Mocha Frappuccino and many other dazzling vodka dessert drinks. And you can even make your own candy vodkas or flavored liqueurs with our recipes. Jolly Rancher Vodka is a favorite and can be used in your own vodka drink creations or in some of ours like the Jolly Rancher Skull Crusher. Don’t want to make your own flavored vodka for drinks? That’s alright because you can find all sorts of fun flavors from brands like Smirnoff and Absolut.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 drink beginner, you can’t go wrong with our two-ingredient classics.

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 most simple vodka drinks you can make.
