3 Vintage Vodka cocktails

This month is all about Absolut vodka. You can find out more about this drink here.

Even though we love making our own recipes, we like to share with you some classic, vintage old vodka cocktails.

You might be surprised by what you will find here. You might know these cocktails already, you should be surprised by how old they are.

Let’s get to it! 


Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary

Ingredients 

  • 50 ml Vodka
  • 25 ml fresh lime juice 
  • Tabasco (3-5 dashes)
  • Tomato juice
  • Salt and pepper
  • Ice 
  • Garnish (lime wedge and a celery stuck)
  • Worcestershire sauce*(optional 3 dashes, I don’t use it)

Tools 

  • Bar spoon
  • Collins glass


The how to 

You can build this in your glass, or roll it between two(for this example I will build it in my glass). For this I like to add my ice first then add the Tabasco, salt, pepper and the lime juice(if you wanna use the Worcestershire sauce this is the time to add the nasty). Stir and make sure the ingredients are mixing. Top the glass with tomato juice and stir some more. Garnish with what will probably be the first vegetable of the day for the person who is ordering this. Throw a lime wedge in there if you feel like.

Pro tip: Make sure you are not saying this name at midnight three times in a mirror ;).


White Russian

White Russian

Ingredients 

  • 50 ml Vodka
  • 25 ml coffee liqueur
  • Sweet cream(liquid whipped cream)  
  • Ice (crushed)  
  • Garnish( 3-4 coffee beans)

Tools 

  • Rocks glass


The how to 

You can build this in your glass. Make sure your glass is full of ice. Add the vodka and the coffee liqueur. Slowly float the cream and you will see that the liquids are layering. Garnish with your coffee beans.  I like serving it like that and serve it with a small straw so the consumer can stir it and appreciate my work.


Cosmopolitan

Cosmopolitan

Ingredients 

  • 50 ml Vodka
  • 25 ml Triple sec 
  • 30 ml cranberry juice 
  • 25 ml fresh lime juice 
  • Ice 
  • Garnish (lime wheel

Tools 

  • Shaker
  • Cocktail strainer
  • Tea strainer 
  • Martini glass 

*because we double strain like a professional


The how to 

Add all your ingredients (fluids) in the shaker. Add ice after to keep dilution to a minimum. Shake like is your business. Double strain in a martini glass with no ice. Garnish with a lime wheel. 

I would personally serve it in a coupe glass and garnish with an orange twisted peel, cuz’ I am fancy like that.

  1. Thanks for the sensible critique. Me & my neighbor were just preparing to do a little research about this. We got a grab a book from our area library but I think I learned more clear from this post. I’m very glad to see such wonderful information being shared freely out there.
