Sip & Celebrate National Vodka Day with these Miami Cocktails!

The origin of “vodka” comes from the Russian word “voda,” which means water, and while we don’t suggest vodka for hydration, we do have a bevy of vodka cocktails that may have you wanting to drink eight glasses a day. In celebration of National Vodka Day (October 4th) – and beyond – we’ve rounded up our favorite vodka cocktail recipes from several of Miami’s hottest dining destinations!
