It’s here. The kick-off to summer. 

I’ll be honest – I wasn’t sure we’d ever get here. The winter was cold and long here in Utah. In fact, it snowed just last week.

But as a long-time Utahn, I can’t say I’m surprised. Utah always has one last wintery hurrah before hitting us hard (and so hard it does) with the hot-as-hell temps.

And we’re honestly already there.

If I was uncomfortable last week with the snow, I’m even MORE uncomfortable this week with the heat. I just can’t do it. The extreme temps make me miserable. 

But, I do have a solution…


Yup, call me a lush, but it does have to do heavily with cocktails and other deliciously cold adult drinks. They’re exactly what I’m looking for when it comes to the heat. Anything to cool me down!

Thing is, I’m lazy and cheap frugal.

I don’t wanna go crazy with all the ingredients and recipes when it comes to making a cocktail. Give me a couple ingredients that I probably already have on hand, and then add some vodka.

And that is exactly what I did for you today.

I put together 4 incredibly simple cocktails that only take 3 ingredients, including the vodka. Chances are, you could whip up a drink within the next 30 seconds with one of these recipes!

You are welcome!


Another one of my favorite mixed vodka drinks is my ever-popular Lightened Up Starburst Cocktail – with the use of whipped vodka, it tastes just like my favorite candy… yes i’m a candy junky too.. i promise i’m healthy sometimes!

Also, I’m pretty sure you and I should be putting a couple more simple vodka drinks on our menus this summer – I’m for sure putting Lisa’s Pink Lemonade Vodka Punch on repeat all summer long. I’m thinking this Grapefruit Salty Dog from The Cookie Rookie needs to join the party as well!

What goes on your mixed vodka drinks menu??

And if you’re a visual learner like me, you can check out the Simple Vodka Drinks Video I put together for you!


Happy summer!!

      I totally agree. Cocktails aren’t something I actually plan ahead for. When mama wants it now, mama gets it now 😉
