Summertime Entertaining: Van Gogh Vodka Dessert Cocktails!

Just in time for the summer heat, Van Gogh Vodka introduces two new deliciously decadent cocktails that are sure to cool you down on a hot summer night. Created by The Cocktail Guru Jonathan Pogash himself, these luscious dessert cocktails will satisfy your sweet tooth. Van Gogh’s delectable Caramel Vodka mixes perfectly with chilled root beer and vanilla ice cream to create a sublime Dutch Root Beer Float, and the Berry Dream cocktail combines Van Gogh’s Blueberry Açai with raspberry sorbet and coconut cream to create a blissfully sweet treat.

You can also indulge guilt-free by substituting ingredients with low-cal options to make a Skinny Dutch Root Beer Float and Berry Dream!

Dutch Root Beer Float
2 oz. Van Gogh Dutch Caramel Vodka
1 scoop vanilla ice cream
6 oz. chilled root beer
Directions: Add the vodka directly to a tall glass, then top with root beer, and lastly the ice cream (add slowly, as it has a tendency to overflow). Garnish with a long straw and enjoy!

1 scoop raspberry sorbet
1 tsp. coconut cream
3 oz. milk (soy, skim, or whole)
Directions: Add to blender and blend. Pour into hurricane or tall glass. Garnish with coconut flakes and fresh seasonal berries.
