The temperature at which this drink is served and the freshness of the orange juice are crucial to its success, but it's perhaps better made into a Harvey Wallbanger.

The Cosmopolitan was originally made with citrus vodka but this recipe works just as well with unflavoured vodka, and when a good quality cranberry juice is used, we prefer the simplicity of unflavoured vodka in this cocktail.
Harvey Wallbanger (IBA)
Like the Screwdriver, the Harvey Wallbanger has sadly waned in popularity, probably due to it being served with packaged orange juice. When made with freshly squeezed orange juice and Galliano L'Autentico (rather than Galliano Vanilla) this cocktail is worthy of a renaissance.

This drink varies from delicious to disgusting, depending on the liquid in your jar of olives. Oil will provide a revolting emulsion: make sure that your olives are packed in brine.

Forget the 'Vodka Red Bull', this is the cocktail connoisseur's way of combining caffeine and vodka.
French Martini (IBA)

Raspberry and pineapple laced with vodka. Easy drinking and very fruity.
