Our 15 Favorite Vanilla Vodka Drinks!

Take a journey with us through 15 of our favorite vanilla vodka drinks perfect for both pros and casual home bartenders. From classic to creative, each of these cocktails showcase everything we love about Absolut Vanilia and vanilla vodka.

Absolut Vanilia is a versatile vanilla vodka that plays well with an array of flavors and ingredients. Its warm and inviting notes complement everything from fruity concoctions to rich, coffee-infused blends. In the list below, you’ll find everything from familiar classics like Passion Star Martinis and Espresso Martini to creative twists like the Strawberry & Cream Highball and Spicy Fifty.

  • When it comes to vanilla vodka, we like to think about how we would pair those flavors in the kitchen. Vanilla vodka often goes with dessert-like pairings like apples, coffee, cream and caramel. On the other hand, vanilla vodka also pairs unexpectedly well with spicy ingredients like hot sauce or jalapeños.

  • We might be biased, but in our humble opinion it’s Absolut Vanilia. The smooth mouthfeel and sweet notes of Vanilla, Butterscotch, and Crême Brulée makes it great on its own, and perfect for mixed drinks. However, the real answer to this question actually comes down to personal preference. If you find a vanilla vodka you like, then that’s the one you should use.
