Cocktail Recipes | Here Are 5 Unique Vodka-Based Cocktails You Must Try:
1. Al Higo (Our Recommendation)
This vodka-based cocktail is unlike anything you've ever had before. The use of figs in it is what makes it so unique. They are muddled in a highball glass to make a puree and then mixed with citrus-infused vodka, elderflower syrup, and cranberry juice. It is sweet, refreshing, and the perfect cocktail to brighten up your mood on a dull day. Click here for the complete recipe for Al Higo.
2. Late Night Gossip
This cocktail is as intriguing as its name. To make it, you only need three ingredients: vodka, coffee liquor, and triple sec. Just mix all the ingredients with an espresso shot and pour into a martini glass. Garnish with coffee beans and enjoy its sinful flavours. Serve this cocktail at your next house party, and we are sure your friends are going to love it. Find the complete recipe for Late Night Gossip here.
