The 4 best Vodka cocktails to create at home
A bottle of Vodka can no longer be ignored from your home bar or alcohol stock. This spirit is perfect for a good cocktail, as a mixed drink or as a shot and is guaranteed to make for a fun evening with your friends. Vodka is the perfect addition to various cocktails due to the neutral taste and good alcoholic kick. From Sex on the Beach to Pornstar Martini, you can make the most delicious cocktails with Vodka as a base ingredient.
Cocktail #1: Sex on the Beach
The Sex on the beach cocktail has been a very famous cocktail since the 80s. This cocktail is the most served cocktail worldwide and has many fans. The perfect combination of Bols Vodka, Bols Peach liqueur, Bols Grenadine and fresh orange juice makes a deliciously sweet and fruity cocktail. Make sure your orange juice is as fresh as possible to add the best flavor to your cocktail. Tip from our Master Bartender: The success of the cocktail depends on using fresh ingredients. Shake the cocktail for about 10 seconds, pour and enjoy!

Cocktail #2: Cosmopolitan
Another old familiar cocktail is the Cosmopolitan. This stylish pink cocktail became famous in the 1990s from the well-known American TV series "Sex and the City". The Cosmopolitan cocktail was a signature cocktail for Carrie Bradshaw and her friends in the series. However, the Cosmopolitan cocktail was born before that, in the year 1985 in South Beach, Florida.
The combination of Bols Triple Sec liqueur, Bols Vodka, cranberry juice, and fresh lime juice makes the cocktail extremely delicious for any festive occasion (even if you have to make the occasion festive yourself). It is often thought that the Cosmopolitan is extremely sweet because the color of the cocktail is pink. This is just not the case. In fact, a good Cosmopolitan has a perfect balance of sweet, sour and a slight bitterness.
Cocktail #3: Pornstar Martini
While it may seem like we've been enjoying the Pornstar Martini cocktail for decades, it hasn’t been that long. In fact, the Pornstar Martini cocktail is a modern classic and has only been around since 2002. Although the Pornstar Martini was born with the name 'Maverick Martini', the cocktail has become very well-known under the catchier name 'Pornstar Martini'.
The Pornstar Martini is a real crowd-pleaser because of its flavor. Not many people say ‘no’ to the combination of the vanilla and passion fruit flavor. A good Pornstar Martini cocktail starts with a delicious fresh passion fruit and a shot of sparkling wine. Fill your shaker with Bols Vodka, Passoã, Bols Vanilla liqueur and fresh lime juice. Add the passion fruit juice and shake! Serve with a shot of prosecco to make the cocktail experience complete.
Cocktail #4: Espresso Martini
Vodka is also a must-have for making the delicious Espresso Martini cocktail. This cocktail will make sure you stay awake and enjoy a fun evening. Dick Bradsell, a legend in the cocktail world, invented the Espresso Martini for a young supermodel so she could stay up all night.
The Espresso Martini cocktail has the perfect combination of Bols Coffee liqueur, Bols Vodka and a freshly brewed espresso. By using a freshly brewed espresso you ensure that you are serving the best Espresso Martini (or drinking it yourself, of course). The bitter taste of the espresso is perfectly offset by the sweetness of the sugar syrup and Bols liqueurs. Good news for the 'rather lazy than tired' bartenders, the Espresso Martini cocktail is easy to make!
