Simple and delicious, this lime vodka soda recipe packs a lot of flavour with minimal ingredients! It’s a refreshing summer cocktail that can be whipped up in minutes!
If you remember just a little while back, I shared a vodka slushy recipe.
Well, we’re still keeping things low key with this simple cocktail: vodka soda.
Vodka soda is made with only four ingredients and is super clean tasting, refreshing and great for summer while sitting on the deck.
Traditionally, it includes lime juice, but I’ve mixed things up with a lemon version too.
Also, I love to garnish with fresh mint (since our garden is overflowing with the stuff). That’s totally optional, though!
Ingredients for Vodka Soda
- Club soda
- Lime juice
How To Make It
Full details on how to make this vodka soda recipe are in the recipe card below, but here are the basics:
- Fill a short cocktail glass (or a tall, slender one) with ice (about halfway or so up the glass).
- Top with vodka, club soda and lime juice, stirring to combine.
- Garnish with a fresh lime slice and some mint, if you like!
Tips for Making This Recipe
- You may be tempted to add more club soda to the glass, but I don’t necessarily recommend that. If you do, you’ll water down the potency and punchiness of the fresh lime juice.
- Ensure your club soda is nice and cold. This vodka cocktail is best when it’s icy!
- As mentioned previously, lime is the juice of choice here for a vodka soda, but I’ve also made it with lemon. Or, you can go all out and try a combo of both!
- Pick the best citrus (so you yield plenty of juice).
