What is your favorite drink with vodka?

Answer examples and advice for how to answer this interview question for a Bartending interview

There's no right or wrong answer here. This is just an opportunity to share how you make your favorite vodka beverage. Explain your process starting from the chilled glass to how it's garnished. Be creative! Rather than talking about how much you love Cape Cods, try explaining a drink that's a bit more complicated and takes more time and care to create it, like a Lemon Drop Martini or a Cucumber Fizz. Vodka is one of the most versatile liquors, so show off your skills and give the interviewer a taste of your style.

Entry Level answer example
"I have a few favorites to drink, and a few favorites to create! I have recently been learning the art of floating and discovered this great drink called the Harvey Wallbanger. I believe it was a big hit during the '70's disco era! This drink calls for 1 part vodka, 3 parts orange juice, and a half ounce of Galliano L'Autentico. Galliano is a sweet, herb-based Italian liquor. In a tall glass filled with ice, I add the vodka and orange juice and stir. Then, I float the Galliano on top. Finally, I garnish with an orange slice."
Experienced answer example
"I am well versed in making complicated vodka drinks, but I always prefer the simplicity of a delicious Moscow Mule in the summer. It's a delicious drink, but I also feel that serving it in the classic copper mug adds to the magic. In a copper mug full of ice, I add 2 parts vodka, 3 parts ginger beer, and half a fresh squeezed lime. Last, I garnish with a lime wedge."
