If you're a liquor newbie, you might be interested to know that vodka is the single purest drink in the world.
If you're a seasoned veteran of America's most popular drink, you may still not know that it's one of the lowest-calorie drinks out there. Interestingly, there's also a museum completely dedicated to it in Russia!
Tito's vodka cocktails are awesome for those looking to get in on vodka's international influence. Read on to learn some recipes to try with friends and loved ones.
1. Tito's and Tonic
Almost everyone has tried gin and tonic before, and it's an easy beverage to make at home.
Mix some Tito's vodka with tonic water in place of gin. Pour it into a glass with a rim lined with salt.
If you want to give the drink some additional flavor, add a fresh lime wedge to the rim. Orange is also a great alternative if you're feeling adventurous.
2. Classic Cosmo
Cosmos are one of the easiest-to-make vodka cocktails out there. All you
need is some Tito's vodka, orange liquor, cranberry juice, and fresh lime juice. Mix them together, but be sure that you don't use a lot of cranberry juice. It's easy to accidentally overpower the strong, smooth Tito's flavor.
Once everything is mixed up, you can either blend the cosmo with ice or serve it on the rocks.
You can also make a white cosmo by using white cranberry juice and Cointreau triple sec. These take the place of red cranberry juice and orange liquor, respectively.
This gives it a uniquely clear, creamy hue that stands out from other drinks. Garnish it with a lemon twist to add visual appeal.
3. Tito's Vodka Cranberry
Vodka cranberries are one of the most classic vodka cocktails out there, and making them with Tito's Handmade is always a great idea. They never go out of style, especially because of the unique flavor that Tito's has because it's made with yellow corn.
This unique, high-quality handmade vodka seamlessly blends in with a full-bodied cranberry juice. Take 4 oz of the juice and add 1.5 oz of Tito's for a perfectly proportioned beverage. Stir it thoroughly, add some ice, and put a lime slice on the side of the rim as a garnish.
4. A Blackberry Cocktail With One of the Best Vodka Brands
Blackberry vodka cocktails are less common than some classic alternatives, but they're an exquisite choice.
To make this delicious drink, you'll need Tito's vodka, carbonated water (aka club soda), lime, sugar, and fresh blackberries. Fresh mint leaves also give the drink a crisp and refreshing flavor that you're sure to enjoy, but it's possible to make it without them.
Put the blackberries, sugar, and optional mint leaves at the bottom of the glass you're drinking from. Muddle them with the back of a spoon. Then, add vodka and fresh-squeezed lime juice. Stir them together with your spoon and add ice.
Voila! The perfect vodka cocktail, tailor-made for blackberry lovers everywhere.
5. Watermelon and Tito's
Fruity cocktail flavors aren't reserved for berries and cherries. There are many different types of vodka cocktails for fruit enthusiasts. Watermelon can also be mixed with Tito's for a crisp and refreshing summer beverage.
Mix 1.25 oz of Tito's vodka with 2 oz of fresh watermelon juice. Squeeze half an ounce of lime juice into the mixture and add some ginger beer. This top-off will give it a bubbly texture without overpowering the sweet watermelon taste.
Garnish it with a slice of lime. This will give you some sour to bring out the complexities in your sweet drink.
6. The Chocolate Cupcake Cocktail
If you're a chocoholic, you're sure to love a cocktail that tastes just like your favorite-flavored cupcakes. Add chocolate syrup to the sides of a martini glass. Mix in 1 oz of heavy whipping cream and infuse it with your Tito's vodka.
You'll also want to add 1 oz of Amaretto and 1 cup of rainbow jimmies.
The best thing about this cocktail, though, is that it's a chance to use vodka-infused whipped cream. It's about 10% alcohol and goes great with sweet, dessert vodka cocktails like this chocolate cupcake treat.
It's a new and exciting way to try Tito's that you won't soon forget!
7. Tito's Sour
Want a little sour instead of sweet? A Tito's Sour is even easier to make than something fruity or chocolatey. All you need are 2 oz of Tito's, an ounce of fresh lime juice, an ounce of simple syrup, a dash of bitters, and an egg white.
All you need to do is add everything to a shaker and dry-shake it for 10 seconds. Then, add ice and shake it again for about 5 seconds. This will make it cold.
Strain the mixture into a martini glass to get rid of any textures that the egg white may have left behind. It should be smooth as long as you strain it well. Then, top it with a dash of bitters for a more complex flavor.
8. Bat-Tito Bite
Looking for a seasonal drink to make your autumn one to remember? This is an awesome spooky punch beverage that's sure to get you into the Halloween spirit.
Take 1 cup of Tito's and 1.75 cups of blood orange soda. Mix them together with a cup of pomegranate juice. That will make your citrusy, fruity drink blood-red.
Squeeze some lime juice into your cup to add sour flavor, and enjoy!
This cocktail isn't just easy to make. It's enjoyable for special occasions like Halloween parties and fall festivals. If you plan to have a bunch of people over at once, make sure to let all guests add their own ice so they can have as intense a fruity flavor as they like.
