Appletini Caramel

The caramel appletini is generally thought of as a “girly” cocktail, but this delectable taste combination is a must-try for every caramel apple enthusiast!
However, it’s a delectable combo!

  • – Ciroc Apple Vodka (1.25 oz.) (you may use your favorite apple vodka instead)
  • – butterscotch schnapps, 0.75 oz.
  • – apple cider (0.75 oz.)
  • – 3 apple slices (we like tart apples like Granny Smith)
  • – 1 chewy caramel candy piece




Use your beloved shaker to combine the Ciroc Apple vodka, apple cider, and butterscotch schnapps in a shaker filled with crushed ice. In a martini glass, strain your drink. One apple slice should be cut and perched on the edge of your glass while the other slices are added to your drink.
You’re ready to drink after you’ve placed your caramel in your glas

What You Need to Know Before Mixing Cocktails

Lemonade made with coconut and strawberry

This delightful drink with coconut and strawberry lemonade is a crowd favorite. You will like this taste if you enjoy flavored lemonade.

  • Ciroc Coconut (or your favorite coconut-flavored vodka) 1.5 oz.
  • – 1 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • – 0.75 oz. honey water combination (.375 oz. honey +.375 oz. water whisked together)
  • 3 berries
  • – club soda (3 oz.)

To begin, “muddle” your strawberries in a bowl. To make a slushy sweet mix in the bottom of your glass, muddle your strawberries with a little sugar. It is NOT crushing and ripping while muddling; 

it is pushing down softly and gently twisting. It’s normally simple to muddle fruit in your glass to avoid washing extra dishes, but if you’re using a ‘V’ shaped glass, you may need to muddle the fruit in a separate container.

Add the berries, Ciroc Coconut, lemon juice, and honey syrup to your shaker after they’ve been blended. Add some ice — the kind of ice doesn’t matter since the drink will be strained. Shake the ingredients together to combine them. Into your glass, strain your drink.
Pour your club soda on top of your drink and garnish with a strawberry slice.





Tango Foxtrot Whiskey Foxtrot Whiskey Foxtrot Whiskey Tango Whisk

The FWT, or Foxtrot Whiskey Tango, is a simple yet tasty cocktail combination.

  • – 1.5 oz. Ciroc Coconut (or any coconut-flavored vodka)
  • – 1 lime – 3 ounces pineapple juice

Fill your shaker halfway with ice (this drink will be strained, so use whatever ice you have). In a cocktail shaker, combine the coconut vodka, pineapple juice, and fresh lime juice. Shake well before straining into a martini glass. A spiral of lime peel may be used as a garnish, although it isn’t required.

Harvey Wallbanger 

The Harvey Wallbanger is a popular and frequent cocktail among vodka drinkers, therefore understanding how to create it is essential! This drink, which combines hazelnut and orange flavors, isn’t for everyone.

  • Vodka, 1.25 oz (use your favorite brand, the best you can buy)
  • Bailey’s liqueur with hazelnut flavor, 0.25 oz.
  • orange juice, 3 oz.
  • a single orange slice

Begin by filling a glass halfway with bigger ice cubes. Allow a few minutes for your glass to cool before adding the vodka and orange juice. To combine the vodka and orange juice, use a cocktail stirrer. Stir in the hazelnut liqueur after it has been swirled for a few minutes. To finish, place an orange slice on the edge of your glass as a garnish.


Collins, Jan

The Jan Collins is a citrus-flavored vodka-based drink that isn’t as well-known as the John Collins. This is the drink for you if you’re looking for something simple and zesty.

  • 0.5 oz. club soda – 0.75 oz. vodka of your choosing – 0.25 oz. orange liqueur
  • 0.75 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • – Simple syrup, 0.25 oz.
  • – 1 orange round (an orange slice in the shape of a round)

Start by filling your shaker halfway with ice (the kind of ice doesn’t matter since we’ll strain this drink). Shake well to blend the vodka, fresh lemon juice, orange liqueur, and simple syrup in your shaker. After you’ve mixed your cocktail, pour it into a glass and top with club soda!
To finish, place an orange slice on the edge of your glass as a garnish.

In an ice-filled shaker, combine the vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, salt, horseradish, black pepper, and lemon juice (big cubes are ideal since they will be needed later).

 To mix your ingredients, shake vigorously and pour into a glass packed with big ice cubes. You’re ready to drink after you’ve garnished your glass with your celery stalk.

Lemonade from the Netherlands

Dutch lemonade is a delicious beverage made with only lemon and vodka. It’s ideal for individuals who want to keep things simple. This two-ingredient drink is perfect for hot summer days.

  • – 1.5 oz. Citroen flavored vodka (the finest you can buy)
  • – 3 oz. lemonade (freshly squeezed)
  • – 1 twist of lemon rind

Sidecar for Gentlemen

The gentlemen’s sidecar is a mixed drink that includes both vodka and cognac.
This cocktail isn’t for everyone because of its unusual and intense taste, but if you’re looking for something to boost your bravery, this is the drink for you!

  • – 1 oz. vodka (of your choice, the finest you can purchase)
  • – Hennessy cognac, 0.5 oz.
  • – 1 oz. grapefruit juice, ruby red

Squeeze your grapefruit peel over the surface of your cocktail to disperse the oils. Remove the grapefruit peel from your drink and add three dashes of bitters to the top!



Mule from Moscow

The Moscow mule is a delicious vodka and ginger beer beverage that is becoming more popular these days. If you don’t like ginger, this isn’t the drink for you; but, if you like the fiery kick of ginger, you should absolutely try it!

  • – 1 oz. vodka (your preferred brand, the finest available)
  • – 1 tbsp fresh lime juice – 1 tsp simple syrup
  • – 4 oz. ginger beer (not to be confused with ginger ale!)
  • – 1 piece of candied ginger – 1 sprig of fresh mint (optional)

Large cubed ice should be used to fill your glass. In a tumbler, combine the vodka, simple syrup, fresh lime juice, and ginger beer. Stir your drink thoroughly with a stirrer and garnish with a piece of fresh mint on top. You may put candied ginger directly into your drink or place it on the side of your glass if you want to utilize it.




Caipiroska made with watermelon

Watermelon is a popular taste for folks who don’t like strong-flavored alcoholic drinks. Because it focuses on fresh tastes and light, refreshing ingredients, the watermelon caipiroska is the perfect drink for these folks.
