Here are the BEST vodka Coke drinks!

I’ve collected the top vodka and Coke drinks to try! Pick from my easy cocktails to make with vodka and refreshing cola.


1. Vodka & Coke

Vodka and Coke is the ultimate easy cocktail–I use diet! The ratios for a vodka cola cocktail can vary, but a common ratio is 2 parts vodka to 4 parts cola. The recipe can be adjusted to your taste–no judgement from me!

Easy Recipe: In highball glass, combine 2 oz vodka, 4 oz cola over ice. Garnish with a lime wedge.

2. Long Island Iced Tea

Long Island Iced Tea is a popular STRONG vodka and Coke drink! This classic cocktail combines just about every liquor in your cabinet with Coke. 

Easy Recipe: In a Collins glass, combine 1/2 oz each vodka, gin, rum, tequila, triple sec, 1/2-1 oz lemon juice over ice. Top with coke. Garnish with a lemon wedge.

4. Colorado Bulldog

The Colorado Bulldog vodka coke cocktail offers a refreshing flavor–I drink it with lots of ice!! My summer go-to coffee cocktail!! I like to add a cocktail cherry on top. It’s a nice touch.

5. DP Shootout

I have my go-to vodka and Coke drink that I love, but sometimes you just need something new. A friend recently introduced me to this delicious drink from Texas called the DP Shootout. I prefer to sip it– but you can add two straws to see who can drink it faster (the “shootout”).

Easy Recipe: In glass, combine 1 part vodka, 1 part amaretto, 2 parts cola over ice. Add two straws.

6. Boston Tea Party

10. Scrooged Yule Love It Cherry Coke Vodka

11. Dracula’s Kiss

12. Spiked Vanilla Coke Float

I mean, as vodka Coke cocktails with ice cream go, guests LOVE it. This summer I am bringing back boozy ice cream floats.
