5 of the Best Vodka Cocktails for Your Hen Party

5 of the Best Vodka Cocktails for Your Hen Party

Cocktails   /   Jan 28th, 2019   /   0 COMMENTS   /  A+ | a-
Vodka is a huge ingredient for cocktail recipes and is used in some of the very best known drinks. With the rise of flavoured vodkas, there are also loads of new ways to try classic drinks with differently flavoured spirits in them.  So this means you could have an entire hen party with vodka cocktails and our buff butlers could mix and serve them for you!  If that soundsperfect, here’s some drink recipe inspiration.
 

Classic vodka cocktails


When you are looking at vodka cocktails, it is always good to start with the classics, drinks that have been enjoyed for years and are still very tasty.
 

Vodka Martini


For cocktails to make yourself, this one is a great starting place.  You need 3 ounces of vodka and one ounce of dry vermouth (like Martini) added to a cocktail glass and stirred.  Finish with a twist of lemon peel.  To make a Dirty Martini, add a little olive brine and use a green olive as a garnishinstead.
 

Moscow Mule


This cocktail is so famous it even has its own mug!  Traditionally, it is served in a copper mug with a handle, but you can use normal glasses if you don’t want to buy the mugs.  You need 5 ounces vodka, 4 ounces ginger beer and ¼ ounce of lime juice. Add ice to the mug then the drinks and stir.  Garnish with a lime wheel.
 

Bloody Mary


The Bloody Mary is a tall cocktail and isn’t for everyone but is a classic.  It mixed vodka with tomato juice, horseradish, hot sauce, Worcestershire sauce, celery, lime and lemon wedges and a little black pepper. If you love strong flavours in your food, then this is the drink for you.
 

What are flavoured vodkas?


If you love vodka, you will love flavoured vodkas.  These started with some simple versions such as lime and green apple but there isnow a huge range of different flavours available. It is also easy to make your own flavoured vodka with a little preparation.  The key to a good flavoured vodka is to find one that has an intense flavour but doesn’t taste artificial.  

Quite a few well-knownbrands offer their own flavoured vodkas range. Absolut is one of the best known and they have a staggering range of vodkas available.  Smirnoff isanother big vodka name with flavoured versions.  But you can get anything from lime, lemon and orange flavoured vodkas to unusual flavourings such as tiramisu, bison grass and pepper vodka.

 

Flavoured vodka cocktails


Just to show how easy they are to make, here are a few examples of flavoured vodka cocktails. You can use any of the different brands of vodka to try these out, but the examples were made with Absolut.
 

Lime Vodkarita


This one mixes 1.5 parts lime vodka with 2/3 parts lime juice and ½ part agave nectar (you can get that in the supermarket).  Add to a shaker with ice and strain into a rocks glass.
 

Very Peary Breeze


For this drink, you need 1.5 parts pear vodka, 2.5 parts apple juice and 2.5 parts cranberry juice. Add all ingredients to a highball glass with ice and garnish with a lime wedge.  Fruity and refreshing!

We hired a butler for a 50th Birthday party - we were a little worried as being a little bit more mature that we would end up with a butler around the same age as our sons! We had Andy and all we can say is .... brilliant! He was the perfect host he put us all at ease and took over our gathering for the next hour. He made the start of our evening so much fun and everyone had an amazing time. So if you are considering it just go for it and let them know about what would work for your group. Amazing thank you Andy, scores on the doors 10 put of 10 for your butler duties and buff well 11 out of 10 ! Thank you

I booked 2 butler's for a 50th Girls night to entertain a group of 8 girls. I was a little apprehensive as i booked as a surprise. Our butlers were Martin and David and they were absolutely fabulous. It was the best part of our weekend and will be remembered for a long time. They were very professional, fantastic sports and such good fun I really cannot recommend them enough. I would not hesitate in booking them again and all I can say is if you are thinking of booking them don't hesitate as you won't regret it. Thanks guys you made our night and the birthday girls night one she will never forget.

Our butlers were on time, professional and exactly what we had hoped for. They read the room well, played some great games and were generally all-round good fun. I’d definitely recommend booking with Butler Bookings, we were very satisfied with the service that was provided.

John was a butler and a gentleman! He made a good 30th into a great party atmosphere. Would definitely book again and highly recommend. Thanks again.

We were very pleased with our butler, Andy. He was an excellent entertainer, arrived in good time and got everyone up and doing games...even the more prudish ones of the group! We were a hen do group of mixed ages (from 25 to 55) and Andy adapted his games perfectly! He was super organised and so it gave us bridesmaids a break from our duties so we could just join in with the fun too. Everyone loved it and we were lucky to have him! Please pass on our thanks again! Lucy

Absolutely excellent. I hired 2 butlers for a party of 14. They were very professional and great at entertaining. Kept the party flowing smoothly and kept everyone’s drinks topped up too. Great ideas for ice-breaker games. Would highly recommend them to anyone.

Very friendly, personable butlers. Easy going and full of good suggestions. Directed a group of 20 women very confidently in games. Very pleased. Many thanks :)

I cannot fault butler bookings, communication was great from start to finish and we had such a good laugh with the two butlers, Marc and Kieran. They played games with us and always kept everyone's drinks topped up. Thank you both so much for being awesome and making my sisters hen do one to remember!

Rachael

Brilliant service. ‘Dave’ the butler was amazing, served drinks, got involved in all of the games and brought lots of laughs to my family and friends. Would definitely use and recommend this service again. All 30+ of my hen party guests all came to me afterwards to say how fantastic he was with everyone, and my cousin (the bride) said he was genuinely a lovely person too. Thank you Dave and butler bookings 🙌🏼
