We're quite outspoken when it comes to our love of brown spirits, but there's no hooch that's more cocktail-friendly than vodka. It blends seamlessly into anything you mix it with--vegetable juice, a fruity muddle, even iced tea--and it's a blank canvas for inventive infusions. When it's the right place and the right time (when a bottle comes frozen in a big block of ice) sometimes it's great to just drink it straight. This summer, we'll be mixing up a myriad of tipples with the Eastern European favorite, from Bloody Marys to smashes to Moscow Mules.

Check out the slideshow above for those recipes, plus a few more of our favorite vodka drinks.
