Vodka Drinks

“This drink has a magical power. It strengthens the weak, and revives those who have fainted. Those tired after work and physical activity can return their life forces by this drink much sooner than by nourishment... it works as a diuretic, an appetizer, an antitoxin.” Thus wrote the 18th-century Swedish botanist Carolus Linnaeus after he tried vodka for the first time on a trip to Russia. Whether he was under the influence of this fine produce of Russia when he wrote this, we might never know. However, looking at the ever-mounting sales figures of vodka, a lot of people seem to have taken these virtues of the drink to their heart. And not surprisingly so, this neutral flavored, easy mixing drink is the best base drink for cocktails as endorsed by some of the top bartenders or, the more befitting, ‘bar chefs’ of the world. That the concoctions, which are churned out with this drink, have both male and female aficionados is an honor for the drink in a world where very few beverages have managed to bridge the gender divide. Read on to learn some of the best vodka cocktail recipes and give your friends and guests an exotic vodka experience.
