    OT - Vodka Passion

    I stumbled across this yesterday at the store.

    http://titosvodka.com

    I've been trying all the "Premium" and "Ultra Premium" Vodka's lately and I'm happy to say this is the best I've tried and it's made in Austin, TX. Distilled 6 times and won the "Double Gold" at the World Spirts Compettition.

    I hated sending my drinking money to the Frenchies...
    Made with real bits of Panther, so you know it's good...

    yep, nothin' like a couple of shots of vodka prior to a group ride on the ol' mtn bike. Makes the ride a bit more challenging and fun!

    Yes. I don't buy brand new cars because it's the one of the worst invstments you can make...but I would love for Detriot to put out a nice quality car that gets great gas mileage.

    Until then I'll just drink Tito's

    Tito's is awesome. Dripping Springs vodka is good, too. It is distilled 20 times, and it is also from the Austin area.

    Titos is a good austin vodka. But the best is "Russian Standard" or "Russky Standardt" if you get the stuff over there.

    The best vodka I have ever had, Moscow is the real deal, they had "vodka restaurants". The russians are the best when it comes to vodka.

    Interesting. I was on a business trip with a business associate from Russia and we were discussing his taste in Vodka and he was very impressed with Tito's. He also mentioned "Vox" Vodka. Haven't tried it yet but he was right on with Tito's.

    Be sure to mix it down at least 5 to 3 though.

    Funny in that we had some Russian visitors and I asked them about good vodka. They said, it's easy to make good vodka since it's merely ethanol. It's not like whiskey or gin or tequila that derives it's main flavors from the aging process. But what do they know, they were scientists?

    see, now i never understood this whole bit about vodka; by definition it is supposed to be as tasteless and uninteresting as possible, so why the big hubbub? i've taken 9 dollar a handle vodka and run it through brita filter a few times and have found that it's almost as smooth and tasteless as 35 dollar a fifth vodka. i guess my point is, if it's supposed to go down as easily and unassumingly as possible, what's so great about it? it's ultimately the pursuit of alcoholic water....

    now single malt on the other hand...

    Vodka is bland. It's the 'Crank it Up' of alcohol.

    The best mixer for vodka is fresca. It sounds white trashy (and is), but a V&F is the perfect "after dinner" drink on one of those hard days at work.

    If I am just drinking it straight, russian standard, ice cold, right out of the fridge is the way to go:



    Chilled shots at a vodka restaurant in moscow



    And the bottle that I bought in the moscow duty free, about 3 hours before the brits confiscated it in heathrow (damn ditry apes!!!)

    Best vodka for the $

    I've been drinking this new vodka lately (its new to my liquor store). The name is Vikingfjord. It is pretty cheap, but i swear it is pretty dang good. It is a good bang for the buck.

    Vodka is to drinking...
