    1. Not boring at all :) That used to be my go to drink. It's all I used to drink. Then I started drinking Vodka, Soda Water and a splash of cran w/ lime juice. That's still my "go to". Hardly any calories and yummy

  2. I'm not local to Tampa, so not eligible, but I will tell you my fave vodka drinks anyway. ;-)

    Since I love *any* cocktail with St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur, I love a good French pear Martini that has St. Germain, Pear Vodka, sparkling wine and a squeeze of lime.

    I was also recently introduced to a caramel vodka. I had the brilliant idea of adding it to hard cider to make a caramel apple and we've been introducing that one to friends since!

    Cheers~

  3. My favorite vodka cocktail is the Moscow Mule. Ginger beer is so refreshing and the perfect mixer! And I like the copper mugs they are typically served in.

  4. I'd make a Red Bull and Vodka. YUM!!

    As for favorite recipe... boring but I love adding a splash of pineapple juice to cranberry and vodka. Gives it a little something extra. :)

    1. Krystal, that is my drink if I am going to be out late. We got a SodaStream over the summer and they sell an exact version of Red Bull. 1 flavor container which is 25 servings of Red Bull for $5. It saved my life, lol!!

  5. My favorite cocktail is the Lemon Drop Martini which I fashioned after the one at The Blue Martini... It is pretty darn delish, even if I do say so myself! Many of my party guests continue to request at my parties!

  7. My favorite is Vodka mixed with orange soda. Don't know if it is a real cocktail, or just something I do. :)

    1. Hmm...have you ever tried vanilla or whip cream vodka with orange soda? It tastes just like a creamsicle!

    2. Yes!! I get the Fluffed Marshmallow and mix it with the orange or grape soda. So good! : )

    1. You must try one!! They are my go to girls night out drink. I don't drink Vodka as much as I used to (I am more of a wine girl now) but I still love a great cosmo.

  9. A few months ago, I tried an extra dirty martini for the first time and loved it. So that is the vodka drink I am loving right now. :-)

    1. That is an excellent classic cocktail for sure. They do make me a little sloppy if I am not careful :)

  10. The most recent vodka cocktail that I became obsessed with is Roy's 1988 martini - it has Finlandia grapefruit vodka, Patron citronage, and SOHO Lychee liquor in it. It is soooo darn good. I need a bartender there to teach me how to make it...
