Vodka

It’s likely that you’ve had a vodka-based drink at some point in your life - it is, after all, a popular choice for many people. But have you ever stopped to wonder about the history of this popular tipple? Or what its best pairing can be?

What is Vodka?

Vodka is a distilled, colourless alcoholic beverage that has been produced from grains or potatoes, juniper berries, and sugar beet. Vodka is not only a great drink for mixing into cocktails, but also can be enjoyed by itself.

History of Vodka

Vodka has a long and storied history in Russia. It is said to have been invented by a monk in the 8th century, and was used medicinally for centuries before becoming a popular drink. Vodka became an important part of Russian culture, and was even used as currency at times. Today, vodka is still an important part of Russian life, and is enjoyed by people all over the world.


Types of Vodka

There are many different types of vodka available on the market. Some of the most popular brands of vodka include Absolut, Smirnoff, and Belvedere.


  • Absolut is a Swedish vodka that is distilled from wheat. It is one of the most popular vodkas in the world and is known for its smooth taste.
  • Smirnoff is a Russian vodka that is made from rye grain. It is one of the most affordable vodkas on the market and is known for its clean flavour.
  • Belvedere is a Polish vodka that is distilled from rye. It is considered to be one of the finest vodkas in the world and has a sophisticated flavour.


How to Drink the Perfect Martini

There are few drinks as classic and elegant as the martini. This quintessential cocktail has been around for over a century, and its simple ingredients of gin or vodka, vermouth, and a twist of lemon make it easy to enjoy. But if you really want to make the perfect martini, there are a few things you should keep in mind.

  • First, when it comes to the liquor, you can use either gin or vodka. If you prefer a more botanical flavour, go with gin. If you want a cleaner taste, vodka is the way to go. 
  • Second, be sure to use a good quality vermouth. This is what will give your martini its signature flavour, so don't skimp on this ingredient.

A traditional martini is made with a 2:1 ratio of liquor to vermouth. But if you like your martinis a little stronger, feel free to adjust the ratio to 3:1 or even 4:1.

Finally, don't forget the garnish! A classic martini is garnished with a twist of lemon peel. But if you're feeling creative, you can try other garnishes
