One of the modern world’s most iconic liquors, vodka traces its origins to Poland and Russia. The first historic recording of vodka production occurred in the 9th century in Russia; the word vodka even comes from the word “voda,” the Russian word for water. While Poland also claims to be an early producer of distilled vodka, it’s now believed that their vodka product was more similar to brandy. However, by the 11th century, Poland was producing vodka and calling it “gorzalka.” The Polish originally used gorzalka in medicine.
Vodka is a clear, distilled liquor that consists of water and ethanol. Standard vodkas are 40 percent alcohol by volume or 80 proof. There are a variety of flavored vodkas available that add extracts and chemical blends. While vodka was traditionally made from grain, like rye, there are multiple materials that can be used to produce vodka. Potatoes, fruits, and sugar are some other ingredients used to produce vodka, but grains and potatoes are considered the most classic ingredients.
Today, vodka is one of the most popular spirits in the world. Vodka boasts a watery, slightly bitter flavor. The undertones that a vodka has are highly depending on the brand and how it’s made. Some vodkas have slightly sweet notes, while others have a distinct grain flavor. The lack of a distinct taste makes vodka an excellent liquor to use in cocktails, though some vodka fans prefer to sip it chilled or take shots of it with a chaser. A standard shot of vodka is 1.5 ounces. Combine a shot of vodka with three ounces of orange juice and ice to make a screwdriver. Or, mix an ounce of vodka with four ounces of tomato juice and your preferred spices and seasonings to make a bloody Mary.
The White Russian is a vodka-based dessert cocktail that calls for 1.25 ounces of vodka, 1.25 ounces of half and half or heavy cream, and 1.25 ounces of coffee liquor. Mix these ingredients together and serve over ice. Or, for a classic cocktail option, mix five parts vodka with one part vermouth and ice to make a vodka martini.
