These recipes are as simple as they are tasty, and they also won’t break the bank by requiring a bunch of different ingredients. It’s likely you even already have the ingredients on hand to make a few of these drinks.

From classics like the screwdriver to more unique, unexpected combinations, there’s a 2-ingredient vodka cocktail for everyone on this list!

Types of Vodka

Vodka is a bit simpler than other spirits, and there are really only three types: plain, flavored, and infused.

Plain vodka is what you see the majority of the time in liquor stores and is used in most vodka mixed drinks. It’s made up of only water and ethanol, so it doesn’t really have a specific taste. Examples are Grey Goose and Absolut.

Flavored vodka is exactly what it sounds like — vodka with the addition of other flavors! From lemon to bacon flavored, the sky is truly the limit.

While similar to flavored vodkas, infused vodkas are generally considered more sophisticated because they use the real ingredient instead of just flavorings. They’re usually flavored with fruits or herbs, which are steeped in the vodka until it takes on the flavors.

All three types are featured in these 2-ingredient recipes, but plain is definitely the most prevalent.

What Can You Mix With Vodka?

Vodka is by far the most versatile spirit. It goes so well with an endless number of mixers thanks to its fairly neutral taste, but the following are some of the most popular mixers for vodka.

  • Citrus Juices (Orange, Grapefruit, Lemon, Lime, etc)
  • Fruit Juices (Cranberry, Pineapple, etc)
  • Lemonade (any flavor)
  • Tonic
  • Soda Water
  • Ginger Beer

This is just to name a few! For specific recipes and more mixers that go well with vodka, read on.
