Ahh, summer: a time to bask in the sun, host a cookout with your friends, and drink some boozy beverages. When it comes to summer drinks, no liquor is more versatile than vodka. Colorless and neutral in flavor, vodka is an easy alcohol to mix with everything from your favorite soda to a glass of refreshing lemonade. It's also strong, meaning that your summer cocktails can cool you down while still packing a punch.
The warm weather possibilities of vodka are nearly endless. You could transform a juicy watermelon into a keg and fill it with vodka punch. You could blend vodka with juice and pieces of fruit to create a grown-up version of popsicles. If you're feeling old school, you could mix your vodka into a classic cocktail, like a Moscow Mule or a Long Island Iced Tea. A sweet tooth calls for a decadent treat like a vodka ice cream sundae or vodka frozen yogurt. And after all that imbibing, take the hair of the dog with a boozy brunch drink like a traditional Bloody Mary.So how will you be taking your vodka this summer? Vote up the preparations you find most toast-worthy, and don't forget your sunglasses.
