Rethink how to use Vodka with these 3 Tropical Vodka Recipes
If you’re getting tired of the same old Bloody Mary recipe, it’s time to meet her distant cousin from the East, the Vladimiry.
Ingredients in The Vladimiry Cocktail
Vodka is an extremely versatile spirit, but it really pops to life when paired with the flavors of its homeland. Caraway, dill and horseradish make for a very savory drink, while carrot juice adds a sweet relief without the acid bite of tomato juice.

The Joan Collins
This drink is delicately pink and 100 percent spa day, which is exactly how I imagine the life and times of Joan Collins. The honey-hibiscus syrup, mixed with lime, cucumber and mint, just begs for a turban, a mud mask and some extra cucumber slices for the eyes.
