Cocktails to Make at Home

Since I’m not an expert (just a mom who likes to unwind with an adult beverage from time to time) I like to keep my cocktail recipes easy and without fancy techniques.

These cocktail recipes are great for parties or just having friends over to hang out (or, on rare occasions, drinking by yourself whilst hiding from your kids in your closet – you KNOW the type of days I’m talking about).

I’m not linking every single recipe from this page, but all are only a click or two away. This is my way of keeping things organized by liquor or drink type.

Cocktails to Make with Vodka

While I love creating fun cocktails recipes with a variety of liquor, I have an almost alarming number of different kinds of vodka in my cupboard. Over the years, various companies have sent me bottles to use in recipe posts.

So I decided to focus on vodka recipes, which are super refreshing and quick to make, to work my way through the alcohol. Vodka is super popular, there are a bunch of inexpensive brands to choose from and its versatile.

So I knew that many of my readers would be able to make the recipes I share.
