Vodka Cocktails for All Occasions
1. Raspberry and Orange Screwdriver

2. Blue Mule Cocktail
If you want to show off your bar skills with a dazzling blue drink that will make everyone go WOW than this one from Ann at annsentitledlife is it.
Honestly, I never would have imagined adding blueberries to my drinks, even though I am a fan. By the way, if you have some Blue Curacao in your cabinet, now you know what to do with it!
3. Blueberry Breeze Cooler
Another fascinating drink from Ann at annsentitledlife is this blueberry breeze cooler. Don’t know about you but any drink that has ‘cooler’ in it’s name is definitely making it to my summer cocktail list.
This one also uses some blueberries and I am digging it.
4. Turkish Delight Cocktail
The name had me at Turkish delight, to be very honest! But the fact that it is a cocktail recipe had me clicking on the link faster than my mind could process it, and I DID NOT regret it.
P.S: If you love pomegranates, you will love this one. Check it out at attachmentmummy.
5. Kiwi Lemonade
I have never been a big fan of kiwis but I am a big FAN of lemonade, and this refreshing recipe is going to make me fall in love with kiwi too because now that I think of it- the sweet and tangy taste of kiwi will go so well with the lemonade.

Refreshing is the first word that comes to my mind when I think oranges. If you love expanding your drink collection than you should difnitely consider tangerine Italian soda. Jen shows you the perfect way to use it to make this delicious cocktail at amagicalmess.

If you can’t decide between a dessert and a cocktail, why not combine the two!! I would tell you that with ingredients like Bourbon cream and vanilla carmel gelato, you can’t go wrong. Check out the steps and measurements at tonyastaab.
13. Chocolate Martini
I probably have your full attention with these two words- chocolate and martini.
For me it is the perfect date night drink. I am glad that the drink looks like it takes a lot of work, but Brenda simplifies it, even encouraging to swap out a few ingredients with something that is more appealing to you.
If you have a date night coming up, don’t wait and bookmark this drink at becomebetty.

For one, it is very simple to make and two, it uses Hawaiian punch that I find super refreshing even without any alcohol in it. Check out the full recipe at missinthekitchen.
15. Fuzzy Kombucha
The health benefits of kombucha are well known. BUT I never thought of trying it- because of me not embracing the healthy eating and living life until now, guilty!

It is the perfect crowd pleaser for the holiday season, so if Christmas is not around the corner yet you would want to bookmark this one to get back to it later.
