    I really enjoy a well made vodka martini, with Kettle One my preferred juice. What say you?

    Titos.. It's the only Vodka I drink these days. Made right here in Texas... It has a distinct flavor to it. Not as smooth as Grey Goose, but once you get acclimated to it, you immediately taste the difference between Titos and other vodkas.. Now, if I order a Titos drink and they have filled the Titos bottle with cheaper vodka-you know it right away... I've handed drinks right back to the bartender and told him it was NOT Titos and he admitted it...

    I call Titos & red Bull rocket fuel.. I know there is another whiskey out there that already has that name but I call it that because of what it does to you.. If you want to achieve orbit-drink rocket fuel! Many of my friends who are casual drinkers, but can still hold their liquor-lose their **** after a few rocket fuels... People that can normally maintain CANNOT maintain while drinking that... I love the guy that brags that he can handle his liquor. Then I buy him a couple of those and they are mopping the floor with their bodies in short order..

    I like Vodka but would never pay more than $20 for any 1.75L bottle.
    Lyna is good. I enjoy it neat and no ice.

    Cold River...just because it's made here in Maine, and when I drink vodka it's either in a weak tonic, or Vodka Collins mix.

    Only drank it straight one time, in Latvia with a bunch of mill wrights and pipe fitters....I was waaaaaay out of my league.

    Vodka is.....vodka. Read
    The reviews. Look at the studies. I’m a whiskey guy, but right now I’m drinking McCormick. $13/1.75. Plastic jug.

    If we’re going to drink straight, then Dripping Springs vodka for the win.

    I tried to enjoy vodka. Read up on it. Tried different brands and expert recommendations. It didn't take.

    Give me a Kentucky bourbon any day.

    I don’t drink anymore; but the wife likes Ciroc the best. It’s distilled with grapes. Quite expensive. If you ask if I’m referring to the vodka or the wife, my answer is “Yes”.

    This is my favorite vodka, but I don’t drink a ton of vodka without a mixer. My wife likes cucumber vodka do that usually what’s available to me.

    I can only drink clear liquors, vodka, gin, rum, tequila etc. mixed with something, like a Bloody Mary or Rum Punch type drink, never straight, so I’m not looking at top shelf for that use.

    I can only drink brown liquors (usually bourbon) straight, never a mixer or even ice, so quality is important there. However my wallet generally doesn’t match my taste, so I am occasionally left with a problem there.
