Vodka Features and Reviews

While vodka is famous for being the national drink of eastern European countries such as Russia, Poland and Ukraine, this colorless distilled liquor is popular worldwide and essential for many cocktail recipes. Vodkas are typically made from grains like rye or wheat, but can also be crafted from beets, molasses, grapes or potatoes.
