A great selection of summer vodka cocktails that are either easy or complex! All are refreshing and perfect for cooling off with in warm weather! For vodka lovers, this is the list for you!
We think summer can be the best season for cocktails, I mean we love our themed holiday cocktails for sure. But, summer makes for so many ways to enjoy fresh fruit, fresh herbs, bubbles and icy cold drinks. Bunches of fresh mint from our cocktail garden, along with basil, sage and thyme make for great additions to drinks. The fresh fruit options are endless: watermelon, fresh berries, peaches, etc. Summer is all about seasonal drinks.

And in looking at highlighting those fresh flavors of fruits, herbs and bubbles, vodka is the base spirit of choice! Vodka isn’t our absolute favorite spirit around here, but we love to use it to highlight certain flavors, it’s more of a blank canvas, and is great for seasonal flavors.
It can highlight those herbal flavors, and even winter flavors when you do richer cocktails when it gets chilly. So, we hope this list inspires you for summer cocktail making!
These summer vodka cocktails include classics like a Vodka Tonic, Moscow Mule, and there are lots of Vodka Spritzers and Vodka Sodas.
Cheers to these great vodka drinks! Also, check out our Summer Cocktails and Summer Rum Cocktails!
