    Looking to try some new vodka drinks on my next Vegas trip. I like them simple. Right now I'm on belvedere on the rocks with a splash of cranberry. Anything new and exciting?

    I have two that I drink locally.
    Vodka and pink lemonade or Vodka and Ice tea.
    I've had problems finding that combo in vegas however.
    Both go down well in hot weather.

    I gave up vodka when I had a bit too much and woke up speaking Russian.

    I enjoy a pretty simple one also, but rather than a splash of cran I get a splash of Grand Marnier. Orangey goodness :beer:

    Vodka Gimlet, a yummy throwback. Vodka and Roses lime juice.
    But one of my faves while playing VP is a Black Russian, Vodka and Kahlua

    We went to Vesper bar in Cosmo and they have an option called "dealers choice" where the bartender asks what your base booze is and they make you something.

    You can add little bits of info like not too sweet, don't like such & such, etc. I liked my drink but i should have asked for a martini-like drink - wanted something a bit stronger!

    I like vodka (Stoli for some reason. It's easy to say. Tastes decent. It's super pricey of dirt cheap), with tonic. 2 limes and 2 olives.
    I can't drink martinis. I need ice in my vodka. and a cold olive soaking in vodka is a nice appetizer.

    If you get down to Mandalay Bay head into Red Square for a mule. They specialize in vodka and make them the correct way with crushed ice (not cubes!) in a copper cup. Perfection.
