When it comes to simple drinks, a vodka soda is hard to beat, especially when using a good quality vodka. It's light, drinkable and does the trick of supplying a good buzz. Of course, in the day and age of flavored vodkas popping up like weeds, a "vodka soda" can sometimes taste sweeter than it should. So, instead of using a flavored vodka, what about just adding a small amount of liqueur to your vodka soda - you'll get great flavor and less sweetness than if using many of the flavored vodkas out there.
And, if you're looking to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, you can even make it GREEN!
