These 2-ingredient vodka drinks are super delicious, inexpensive to make, and whip up in five minutes or less!
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.
I love a fruity drink, and this one sounds delish!
Instead of cranberry apple juice, the recipe calls for cranberry juice mixed with green apple vodka. The result is a tart, slightly sweet, and festive drink that's would be great to serve at a Christmas party.
Speaking of coffee, here's another drink that's sure to perk you right up! It's made with vodka and Starbucks Chocolate Peppermint Espresso, but I think any chocolate peppermint flavored coffee would do the trick.
It'd be fantastic to whip up on Christmas morning and would definitely put a little ho ho ho in your step!
If I were Spongebob, this is the kind of pineapple under the sea I'd want to live in. One with vodka inside of a martini glass! (Not sure how I would fit inside, but I've already committed to the pun).
This is one of my favorite go-to vodka cocktails that I like to call a "Pine-y Vod-y", which is about as fun to say as it is to drink.
If you thought it was impossible to improve everyone's favorite brunch drink, think again.
While the recipe calls for spices like sriracha, salt, and pepper, it's really only two ingredients: tomato juice and bacon-infused vodka. The bacon vodka adds extra smokiness and depth, and would go amazingly well with a bacon, egg, and cheese breakfast sandwich.
This savory, briny cocktail is for any pickle lovers in the room.
This is sort of a riff on a dirty martini, which is made with olive brine, vermouth, and vodka, and it uses *specifically* Claussen Dill Pickle juice. So next time you have leftover pickle juice in a jar, don't throw it away -- throw it in a shaker with some vodka and enjoy it in a whole new way!
This is definitely not your grandma's iced tea recipe.
Peach iced tea is a classic Southern drink in the summertime, and this recipe takes it to the next level by combining it with Smirnoff Sorbet Light White Peach Vodka. The name of the vodka is a mouthful, but the drink sounds so refreshing and tasty!
