Cointreau is the most popular mix in when shaking up cocktails. It is made from sweet and bitter orange peels and adds a lot of flavor!
A sweet non-alcoholic bar syrup that's deep red in color. It's made from pomegranate juice, high-fructose corn syrup, citric acid, and red food coloring. It's very popular in many vodka cocktails.
Glasses To Serve Vodka Drinks In
- Highball- these are glass tumblers that are taller and used to serve mixed drinks that contain a large proportion of a non-alcoholic mixer, and are poured over ice.
- Martini- this glass is specifically used to serve martinis in which will be comprised of mostly, if not all vodka.
- Coupe- A smaller drinking glass that has a moderately thick stem and shallow bowl. It is used for fancier cocktails that have a stronger ratio of alcohol but not like a martini.
- Lowball- This glass is also called an old fashioned or rocks glass. It is short and wide with a sturdy bottom made to hold less ice than a highball glass. It's great for vodka on the rocks with a twist or stronger vodka drinks with little mixers.
