If you’re not familiar with whipped cream vodka, it’s vodka infused with sweet vanilla whipped cream. There’s no actual dairy or cream in the vodka but the sweet light vanilla flavor of whipped cream really does come through.
The alcohol flavor in whipped cream vodka is toned down, so it doesn’t need a chaser or mixer to be enjoyed. However, it’s a versatile liquor that makes incredible mixed drinks. Here’s a list of the best whipped cream vodka drinks we could find. Best of all, most of them only need 3 or 4 ingredients to make!
You can find whipped cream vodka at most liquor stores. They retail for under $20 a bottle with most being around $15. Use whichever whipped cream vodka you like; the brand doesn’t really matter since you’ll be adding other flavors.
This drink is so rich and creamy. It features bright orange flavors, and reminds me of an orange creamsicle. The half & half is what makes this drink creamy. If you use milk it won’t be as creamy, but it’ll cut the calories by about half. Perfect for sipping on the deck on these hot summer days.
Banana Cream Pie
This dream is sweet and boozy It could even double as a dessert. You’ll only need three ingredients to make this drink unless you want to get fancy with garnishes. The banana flavor comes from Crème de Banana liqueur. Go a step further, top this drink with whipped cream and graham cracker crumbs and make it a complete pie in a glass.
Whipped Root Beer
I think this may be the simplest cocktail on the list, and it is actually the first time I ever used whipped cream vodka! It has only two ingredients, and tastes just like a classic root beer float. Add a scoop of vanilla ice cream and make it a boozy float. Or garnish with whipped cream and a cherry, your choice! Whether you work inside or labor outdoors, this is a great way to celebrate quitting time.
Baileys and Coffee
This is great way to use up your left-over black coffee. The coffee goes into the ice cube tray and once the coffee cubes are frozen, pour over your other ingredients. Slightly bitter coffee and sweet baileys are a match made in heaven! Breakfast may be too early for this drink but it makes a great drink for brunch with friends.
Strawberry Shortcake Martini
The juicy strawberry and flavored vodkas really make this taste like the real deal strawberry shortcake dessert. For the most authetic flavor garnish with graham cracker crumbs. Its bright red color makes it perfect for Valentine’s Day and patriotic parties.
Vodka Creamsicle Mimosa
Try this drink the next time you feel like having a mimosa. Like traditional mimosa, this one contains juice and champagne but it’s a tad sweeter. It’s a very simple drink that can be made in a pinch. Try it for brunch!
Black Forest Martini
This martini captures the essence of this delicious German dessert. It uses three types of European liquor to build the perfect cherry flavor including Kirschwasser which is in every recipe for Black Forest cake. Rich chocolate flavor mingles perfectly with the cherry flavor. This decadent martini would be perfect for a birthday or very special events.
Cranberry Orange Cream Cocktail
While the name of this cocktail does say cream, there is no dairy in this recipe. The creaminess comes from the whipped vodka, so it’s a lighter cocktail making it a good drink for a hot day. Citrussy orange and tart cranberry are tamed by the whipped cream vodka. Serve at the beach or at summer BBQs.
Chocolate Cupcake Cocktail
This cocktail screams party with the rainbow jimmy garnish on the glass rim. It’s chocolate-amaretto flavored and to be honest, it’s a little strong, so serving a small amount in a martini glass will help balance it out particularly if you’re serving it with food. A must try for your next birthday.
Key Lime Pie Martini
This drink is like dessert, but it’s refreshing at the same time due to the lime flavor. Garnish with graham cracker crumbs to really make it look and taste like the dessert. If you have a key lime pie lover in your house, you need to try this recipe!
Flaming Smores Shot
If you like putting on a show for your guests, this drink is for you. It’s a simple drink that tastes like your favorite campfire dessert. Top off with 151!
151 is not really a drinking rum, it’s over-proofed rum and popularly used for its flammability. Light the top of the cocktail after you’ve added the spoon of 151 and place a large marshmallow on top. Serve this cocktail as the marshmallow roasts right before your guests’ eyes. It is guaranteed to be a hit at your next bonfire.
Strawberry Shortcake Sangria
What’s not to love about this very strawberry sangria. It features juicy strawberries and one of my favorite wines. It is great for sipping on Girl’s Night or at bookclub.
Cotton Candy Cocktail
Don’t be intimidated by the title. This pink drink is sweet, but not cloying. It doesn’t just mimic cotton candy flavor, there’s real cotton candy in this recipe! The small amount of cotton candy gets melted by pouring soda and vodka over it. You’re not limited to pink cotton candy; the drink will take the color of whatever cotton candy you choose. Great for Bachelorette parties and baby shower guests alike.
Smores Latte Martini
This martini is for fall days that aren’t too hot or too cold. It features Smores flavors to remind you of summer but will warm you up from the inside out. You can even spruce it up with some cinnamon or pumpkin spice.
Iced Coffee Cocktail
This cocktail is so easy to make. It’s a great drink for those who love coffee. It is sweet, creamy and super addicting. Warning: You’ll never want regular iced coffee again.
White Chocolate Steamer
This is definitely a holiday drink! Its warm, boozy, white chocolatey with refreshing peppermint flavor. Serve at your next Christmas party.
Boozy Orange Creamsicle Float
We’ve already covered an orange creamsicle drink in this list, but I promise its not the same thing. This is a float, so there’s vanilla ice cream! It would make a great addition to your next summer party. If you grew up loving orange creamsicle pops, this is a must try.
You’ll need a shaker to make this martini. If you don’t have one try a mason jar instead!The 3 ingredients give this martini an almost pure white color. Great for a fancy Halloween shindig or an all white party.
Lemon Drop Cream Soda
Lemons don’t get used to their full potential when it comes to cocktails. This Lemon drop cream soda is like a creamy, boozy lemonade. The tart lemon and the whipped cream are the perfect foil. Serve it in the summer in place of lemonade at picnics.
Pecan Pie Martini Shots
This is certainly another holiday drink. Got a crazy family like me? Think thanksgiving pre gaming. It tastes like a liquid pecan pie with notes of brown sugar. It is also great after dinner.Served in a shot glass, it’s less than 2 ounces so you won’t have to feel too guilty about it.
Tips to Elevate Your Cocktail Game
Use Fresh Ingredients – Choosing fresh over frozen or packaged ingredients will always give your cocktail the best flavor. For instance, try squeezing fresh oranges or limes rather than settling for concentrates.
Use Decent Alcohol – You don’t have to break the bank to make decent cocktails, but you shouldn’t be scraping the bottom of the barrel either. Use premium liquors because they contain higher quality ingredients and are often distilled more times, for a smoother drink. Skip the pricey alcohols and aim for the middle of the road bottles. Don’t just settle for the cheapest options you can find.
Use Appropriate Glassware – Don’t serve your cocktails in any old glass as it takes away from the drink. If you’re making martinis, actually serve in a martini glass.
Invest In a Few Tools – You don’t need a whole arsenal of fancy gadgets. You can find cheap cocktails shaker sets on Amazon or Marshalls or put it on your wish list. The most basic set will include, measuring and stirring spoons, a shaker, a muddler, pourers and a drink stand.
Taste Before You Serve – It may seem strange but some people never think to taste the food or drink they are serving, especially when they’ve followed a recipe. Tasting is the most reliable way to ensure you’re serving a tasty cocktail and can catch mistakes before they go out.
Bonus – Don’t skip the garnishes. You already worked hard to make the drink, dress it up a little. Some garnishes are all for show but others really do compliment the cocktail.

Many interesting and delicious sounding drinks here
Oh my gosh, whipped cream vodka is so dangerous because it’s so smooth and sweet, that you don’t taste the alcohol. In college, we would mix it with apple juice and it tasted like apple pie!

These are amazing! I mean, booze and whipped cream. What’s not to love?
