Vodka is a staple cocktail liquor and we have some of the best vodka-based frozen drink recipes for summer right here. Have fun choosing one!
When thinking about the versatility of vodka, we thought it was high time to assemble a dream team of frozen vodka-based beverages for you to enjoy at your next cocktail party.
Why Vodka For Frozen Drinks?
Vodka is an incredibly versatile liquor. It’s one of my all-time favorite alcoholic beverage bases because it can add that special little something to any mixed drink, frozen or not, without overpowering the beverage with its own flavor.
The reason it can do that, simply put, is because vodka doesn’t have a discernible flavor. It’s flavorless, odorless and colorless, making it an ideal way to infuse alcohol into a frozen beverage without overpowering the fruit or other liquors that are mixing together.
Plus, since vodka itself won’t freeze because of the alcohol content, you can keep it in the freezer to get a very cold start to your drinks.
