15 Vodka Cocktail Recipes Perfect for Summer
If you're anything like me, you probably don't drink a lot of vodka. Sure, you might keep a bottle around for the occasional Bloody Mary. And yet vodka has its place—its crisp flavor is a natural match for refreshing summer cocktails. And because it's fairly neutral, you can pair it with just about anything: Earl Grey tea, lemongrass, or even tomatoes. From a classic Moscow Mule and updated Cosmo to vodka-spiked LaCroix, we've rounded up 15 of our favorite vodka cocktails to keep you cool on a hot summer day.
- 1 bottle (750-ml) vodka
- 2 medium ruby red grapefruit
- Half-moon slices of ruby red grapefruit, for garnish
- 3 ounces club soda, chilled
Using a sharp knife, cut off the top and bottom of a grapefruit, exposing the flesh. Place the grapefruit on the cutting board so that one of its cut sides is on the work surface. Cut away the remaining peel and pith of the grapefruit, angling the knife to follow the curve of the fruit. Cut the grapefruit into quarters. Repeat with the remaining grapefruit transfer grapefruit to a large resealable container and pour in the vodka. Let stand at room temperature at least 8 hours (or overnight).
Strain the grapefruit-infused vodka through a fine-mesh sieve into a clean resealable container. Store vodka in the freezer until ready to use.
Fill a Collins glass two-thirds full with ice and tuck in a couple of grapefruit slices. Pour in 1 1/2 ounces of grapefruit-infused vodka top up with 3 ounces of club soda. Stir briefly with a long-handled cocktail stirrer, then serve.
Vodka Shots Supplies
To start making your shooters, combine sugar and chili powder in a small shallow bowl or dish. Rub a lime wedge around the rim of the shot glasses, then dip into sugar chili mixture.
Place shot glasses on serving dish. Peel and chop the mango. Puree the mango using a blender.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add vodka, mango puree, lime juice and a pinch of chili powder. Shake vigorously.
Pour into shot glasses. If it’s a little thick, add a splash of water to thin.
1. Sweet and Tangy Mango, Pineapple and Grapefruit Vodka Cocktail
Introducing "Michelle&aposs Mellow Yellow Fruity Fellow" cocktail
Three very different yellow fruits ranging in flavour from sweet to tangy combine very well with the vodka to produce a delicious and extremely refreshing summer cocktail. Using certain fruits canned rather than fresh saves both time and money but they should be canned in juice rather than syrup for best results.
A Michelle&aposs Mellow Yellow Fruity Fellow cocktail is blended pineapple, mango and grapefruit with vodka
Peach Moonshine Mash
Does anything say summer like biting into a fresh peace? Bottle that sunshine taste by making your own peach moonshine!
This peach moonshine mash calls for a large number of peaches. Consider approaching a local producer at the end of the season to see if you can get a large amount of overripe fruit for a better price.
Peach Moonshine Mash Ingredients:
- ½ bushel of peaches (about 25 lbs)
- 6 lbs of cane sugar
- 2 packets of bread yeast
- Sanitation is one of the most important steps in moonshining. Wash your peaches well to remove any natural yeasts or pesticides.
- Quarter your peaches and remove the pits.
- Place the peach chunks in your food processor to break down further. Do not fully liquefy.
- Pour your peaches into your large pot
- Heat to 160°F.
- Once your peach mash has hit 160°F, it is time to pour your mash into your fermentation bucket.
- Add four lbs. of sugar and stir well with a spoon until fully dissolved.
- Top up the mash with cold filtered water until the fermenting bucket hits 5.5 gallons.
- Stir well to incorporate all the ingredients in the mash.
- Let your mash cool to 70°F. You can place the fermentation bucket in a sink full of ice water to cool your mash down quicker or use an immersion chiller. Another option is to simply wait a few hours.
- Once your mash reaches 70°F you can add your yeast and aerate the mash by pouring it from one 5 gallon bucket to the other or shaking (with an airtight lid) for 10 seconds.
- Place on the airlock. Put your bucket in a temperate area for about 7-14 days. Your mash is done fermenting when there is no activity in the airlock for 2 days.
Once the fermentation process is complete, it is time to distill. Check out our step by step guide to moonshining to learn more.

7 Cool and Refreshing Vodka Cocktails for the Summer
What makes an ideal summer cocktail? In short, it should be cool, crisp and refreshing. Since that sums up vodka perfectly, no wonder it’s a base for so many summertime sippers.
Vodka’s versatility lends itself to cocktails made using seasonal fruit like strawberries and blackberries, or freshly picked herbs like basil, highlighting rather than hiding those vibrant colors and flavors. It also plays well with the refreshing bubbles found in Prosecco and ginger beer.
These light, bright sips are perfect for alfresco entertaining. Serve them poolside, at patio parties or when picnicking with friends.

The liquid ingredients are measured out in equal proportion, making this one of the easiest drink templates around. No wonder Strawn developed this no-fuss strawberry sipper for his new “urban beach house” bar, inspired by Long Island’s languid East End.

- ¾ ounce St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur

Not unlike an adult slushy, this icy-cold Venetian classic is a terrific palate cleanser. It’s often served after dinner as a light alternative to dessert, traditionally made with lemon sorbet. “If a bar has a sgroppino on the menu, I always know I’m going to like the place right away,” says Wildy.

Homemade Holiday Gift: Infused Vodka Recipes
Infused vodka is a fun and unique hostess gift for the holidays. Vodka can be infused with a variety of flavors from citrus to candy canes!
If you&rsquore like me, then you love shopping for Christmas gifts. It&rsquos never seemed like a chore to me to choose the perfect give for everyone on my list. Some years, I get my shopping done extremely early, and other years (like this one, for instance) I tend to spread my shopping out over a long period of time and perhaps even wait until *gasp* last minute to find the right gift.
That being said, I don&rsquot appreciate the multiple emails a day in my inbox that are telling me that &ldquotime is running out&rdquo and that &ldquothere is still time to choose those last minute gifts&rdquo. It&rsquos the first week of December! By no means is this last minute, and it irks me that stores try to get me all stressed out that I don&rsquot have my shopping done yet.
Just to prove to you that we all still have plenty of time to choose your holiday gifts, here is an awesome homemade edible gift idea that takes several days to make, but with very little actual hands on time. Yes, infused vodkas are easy, impressive and delicious, but they do take a few days to make. But no worries, right? We all still have plenty of time!
I&rsquove been wanting to try to make my own flavored vodkas for a while now. I love the idea of mixing unique combinations of flavors that lead to some very impressive cocktails. I decided to go with three flavors and played around a little with various winter and
For the Citrus Rosemary Vodka, I combined clementines with a bit of grapefruit and some aromatic rosemary. It&rsquos like a cocktail version of my Rosemary Citrus Spritzer. The Cranberry Orange Vodka has notes of cinnamon and clove for a warm, holiday feel and the Candy Cane Vodka is full of pepperminty flavor. Simply place vodka and your desired flavor infusers in a mason jar and allow to steep until the the vodka has taken on the flavor of your added ingredients. The process couldn&rsquot be simpler!
These vodkas make perfect hostess gifts for the holidays, especially when decanted into fancy bottles or even sweet little mason jars. Tie a hand stamped gift tag around each bottle for a complete package. Don&rsquot let your email inbox bully you into thinking you&rsquove run out of time. Relax, make some infused vodka and sip on a yummy holiday cocktail. You totally have time!
