Vodka can be as wild and dynamic as you let it, particularly when it comes to the flavored variety. Of course, the practice of soaking fruit in spirits to infuse them with a new taste is nothing new, but the addition of fun flavor profiles like basil certainly is.

Take a look at GAYOT’s Best Flavored Vodkas to discover offerings with a diverse range of ingredients, including pomegranate, pineapple, huckleberry and more.

> These flavored spirits can be enjoyed alone over ice, or as a sweet addition to any Vodka Cocktail Recipe.
