Vodka is an ideal base for cocktails.

The spirit’s clear and mild taste makes it mixing friendly. While a Vodka Martini is simple and easy to make, it’s time to branch out and create other cocktails that are just as good. Making cocktails at home is fun because you can experiment with different flavors, techniques, and customize any drink to your liking.

It wouldn’t be right to not embrace the plethora of options this spirit has to offer.

Here are four vodka cocktails that are worth making.
