‘Tis the season to be jolly! And you can’t be in a proper celebratory mood without a holiday drink in hand, so here are our recommendations if you’re looking to put together some vodka drinks for your upcoming festive parties.

For some more zing, try adding a splash of cranberry juice or using ginger ale instead of ginger beer.
The best espresso martinis are made by combining two parts vodka with one part espresso coffee liqueur and then adding ice cubes.

Is Vodka a Safe Liquor?
Any liquor can be dangerous if consumed in excess, but vodka is no more dangerous than any other type of alcohol. In moderation, vodka is a safe liquor to consume. It’s always best to follow the CDC guidelines for alcohol consumption, which recommend no more than two drinks per day for men and one drink per day for women.
Vodka is one of the most popular liquors on the market for a reason – it is versatile and delicious. Whether you are looking for a classic cocktail or something new and exciting, there is a vodka drink out there for you. So, grab your favourite bottle of Absolut and get mixing!
