Channel your inner bartender and shake up delicious at-home cocktails

Learn how to make a signature Absolut cocktail for your next gathering.

THE FESTIVE SEASON is creeping closer, and our schedules are filling up with more events and gatherings than any of us have attended in the last few years combined. 

Often, the best place to gather is in your own home, inviting friends and family for an evening of chatting and catching up. Absolut is here to make those gatherings celebratory with a host of options perfect for a simple long drink or a delicious cocktail.


There are just some gatherings that shout out for a drink that will make it feel extra special. After all, life’s too short for boring cocktails. 

No matter what cocktail you’re mixing up, Absolut is the brand you’ll need to stock up on to keep both the flavour and quality high. In fact, the quality of vodka really can make or break your cocktail and if you’re going to be mixing and shaking ingredients, you want it to taste great and impress your guests. 

Produced in a single location in Sweden from only natural ingredients, Absolut vodkas are the perfect foundation for any vodka-based cocktail or long drink. If you’re looking to elevate your gathering of friends and family, look no further than the world’s most famous vodka.

Are you in the market for a new cocktail recipe to break in your shaker? It’s time to try Absolut’s iconic Pornstar Martini. You’ll need to stock up on a few tropical fruits, but they’re well worth adding to your grocery delivery. 

Here’s how to put it together. First, muddle one slice of pineapple in a shaker. Add Absolut Vanilia, passion fruit pulp from half a passion fruit, vanilla syrup and passion fruit purée. Shake and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish the tropical cocktail with 1/2 a passion fruit floating on top.

Ready to take it to another level? Serve your Pornstar Martinis accompanied with a shot of champagne, perfect for toasting a birthday or to kick off a dinner party with friends. 

Or is a Cosmopolitan more to your taste?

Fill a shaker with ice cubes. Add all ingredients. Shake and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with an orange zest twist.

Elevate simple drinks for impromptu gatherings 

For those impromptu gatherings, you’ll want to keep a few Absolut vodkas on hand. They’re perfect for mixing with soda for the simplest, yet most flavourful drinks. You can’t go wrong with a bottle of Absolut Passionfruit or Absolut Raspberri on your bar cart or in your liquor cabinet. As long as you have a bottle of soda and ice, you’ll be able to turn a last-minute gathering into something that feels a bit more luxurious.
