Vodka and Vodka Cocktails – Interesting twists to an interesting drink
With so many exciting flavors of vodka out there, it is no surprise that vodka is an immensely popular drink in the world, especially in the United States. Ask any true blue alcohol lover and they will say Vodka is not just about drinking. There is a lot surrounding Vodka’s history and cultural importance, as well as many, do’s and don’ts on how to mix the drink.
Vodka is most distilled from grains like wheat, rye or rice, but it can also be distilled from things like potatoes, corn, beets, fruits (like apples or grapes), or even milk or maple syrup. Most understandably, when it comes to vodka its best to opt for higher quality vodka. It’s important to have it chilled in the freezer. Remember, while vodka shots are primarily taken to get the party started, the ice-cold shooters are also great with food.
