Your favorite sippin Vodka.

When I'm ready for a shot of Vodka I reach for the Absolut bottle in the freezer door.

How about you?

    Just to stir, or shake, up the discussion: Isn't Vodka by law have to be tasteless, colorless, and odorless?

    no. only American made Vodka is subject to those laws. Imported vodka may have up to 2.5% "various ingredients" added that do not have to appear on the label. However, if you've ever had Koenig Potato Vodka from Idaho, which has a fairly obvious potato aroma and flavor, you have to come to the conclusion that the legal threshold for odorless and tasteless is not too hard to pass.

    So I took a bit of fictional license and said sipping. I think most of us that drink vodka straight take a shot. I keep a pint and a couple shot glasses in the freezer door.

    Believe it or not, to experience the full subtle flavors of vodka, you should drink it at room temp. Chilled from the freezer, actually hides most of a vodka's distinction.

    We used to keep tequila in the freezer to mute the taste and make it smoother.

    Why would you want to drink something if you have to mute the taste of it?

    From time to time, I eat cold pizza or cold spaghetti. Has nothing to do with how I feel about the original. Cold does mute flavors though.

    usually vodka served neat is taken as a shot. But it's not uncommon to drink the shot in two half shots so as to reli**** a bit longer. That's about as close to sipping vodka as one finds, which is hardly sipping to a whiskey drinker, but it's sipping to a vodka drinker.

    Also, one would most likely sip a vodka martini, which is simply dirty vodka. I find I can sip any of those flavored vodkas if served neat or with once piece of ice in a martini glass.
