Vodka Soda fans love the cocktail for its clean and crisp taste (and virtually blameless calorie count). Our favorite new vodka of the year, Nikka Coffey Vodka, is a Vodka Soda’s soulmate. Distilled from corn and barley, and refined with white birch charcoal, this Japanese vodka tastes of honeysuckle, mint, lemon oil, fresh cut grass and sugar snap peas. Basically, it’s refreshing as heck.
But we’re also huge fans of using a quality flavored vodka to take the neutral Highball up a notch with no extra effort. Skip weird dessert flavors in favor of something as cooling as the Vodka Soda itself: Crop Cucumber Organic Vodka. This flavored vodka from New York tastes like freshly muddled cucumbers and will instantly enliven your go-to drink without adding any extra calories.
