A sweet strawberry cocktail is the perfect companion on a lazy spring afternoon. Have some fun with this vivacious spritzer made with one of our favorite vodka mixers: lemon-lime soda.

Equality Vodka Spring Cocktails Vodka Mixers and Garnishes


  • 4 oz Fresh strawberries
  • Sprig of rosemary
  • 1 oz fresh lemon juice
  • 2 oz Equality Vodka
  • 4 oz Lemon-lime soda (use mineral water to reduce the sugar content)
  • Fresh mint leaves

In a shaker, add the strawberries and rosemary. Muddle vigorously to release their fresh flavor. Next, add the lemon juice, vodka, and soda. Stir lightly until the ingredients are well combined.

Fill a pint glass with ice and strain your fruity concoction into the glass.

Dress this darling drink up with a pinch of mint leaves as garnish, or leave it as is. As spring's hottest bartender, we'll let you call the shots!

Piña Mule

This spring favorite is a tropical twist on the ever-so-popular Moscow mule. While the primary vodka mixer in this cocktail is ginger beer (a classic!), the drink shines a spotlight on a tart yet refreshing star: pineapple juice.

Equality Vodka Spring Cocktails Vodka Mixers and Garnishes


  • 2 oz fresh pineapple juice (or store bought)
  • 1/2 oz of fresh lime juice
  • 2 oz Equality Vodka
  • 4 oz ginger beer
  • Fresh pineapple slice (per glass)
  • Fresh lime slices

This quick and easy cocktail requires no fancy equipment. Start by adding your pineapple and lime juices to a copper mule mug. Next, add the vodka and toss in a few ice cubes.

Top the ingredients with ginger beer, making your drink as strong or balanced as you like.

Finally, bring the fun, fruity flavors to this spin on a classic cocktail by adding a slice of pineapple and a slice of lime to the rim of your mug. Sip and enjoy!

Spiked Shirley Temple

Take this kid classic to a sophisticated level with this succulent adult beverage. Perfect for any occasion, this flavor fusion is a delightful trip down memory lane. Here's what you need to create a simple but delectable vodka cocktail.

Equality Vodka Spring Cocktails Vodka Mixers and Garnishes


  • 4 oz Lemon-lime soda (use mineral water to reduce the sugar content)
  • 1.5 tbsp of grenadine
  • 1.5 oz orange juice
  • 1 oz lemon juice
  • 1.5 oz of Equality Vodka
  • 2 whole cherries

In honor of the classics – of the drink variety and the marvelous miss Shirley Temple herself – this cool cocktail deserves a mason jar.

Fill your jar half-way with the soda, then add the grenadine, orange juice, and lemon juice. Next, make it "grown up" by adding your vodka.

Lightly stir the ingredients together and plop a few ice cubes in there for posterity.

Finally, make it a refreshing spring ensemble by topping your drink with a pair of fresh cherries. You get extra points if you can pluck them right off a blooming vine.

No cheating! Save the maraschino cherries for when the freshies aren't in season. You shouldn't have any hard knocks finding plump, juicy cherries this time of year!

The Possibilities Abound with the Right Vodka Mixers

When it comes to creating a cocktail with a mood, it's all about choosing the right vodka mixers. When spring is in the air and you want to recreate that lovely vibe in a glass, reach for vodka mixers with bright, citrus flavors, fruity complexities, or a bubbly, effervescent finish.

Vodka mixers like lemon-lime soda, ginger beer, and citrus fruit juices pair beautifully with vodka's smooth, clean flavor. Then, get inspired by spring by garnishing your cocktails with seasonal fruit and herbs.

These fresh, spring cocktails are perfect for entertaining guests in the garden, cooling off after a thorough spring cleaning, or just enjoying the lovely weather on the porch with a chill playlist.
