OK, if you had to choose: Are you a vodka or a wine woman? Don’t freak out now. We’re not actually forcing you to pick. And yet, spring does kinda call for an icy vodka cocktCheers to Spring: It's Vodka Cocktails Timeail—or better yet, three—on the deck to celebrate the conquering of winter.

Oh how we adore our vodka—for so many reasons. It’s clear, clean, and as low-cal as booze gets. Plus, it’s just so darn versatile. We use it as the base in everything from basic drinks to elaborate cocktails. No matter your craving, it’s here for you—fruity, sweet, tangy anyone?

Now, what if there was a vodka with a twist, one that is just a little different from the rest? We recently discovered Wódka Żołądkowa Gorzka, a vodka made in a special Polish tradition that spans hundreds of years. It’s got a unique golden colour because it’s infused with herbs and fruit resulting in a smooth taste with just enough hint of sweet tangerine. Make sure your friends take cabs to your place because once you mix up these easy cocktails, no one will be able to stop drinking.
