Happy National Vodka Day! Celebrate accordingly with these fun vodka facts and drinks:
- Vodka accounts for almost 20-25% of spirits sold today in North America, making it the most popular libation.
- Vodka is made from many different things such as beets, potatoes, wheat and even grapes. The final product doesn’t depend on the ingredients so much as the methods of production.
- Many view vodka as one of the least dangerous alcoholic beverages because it’s filtered of many dangerous chemicals and has less of an after effect on the body. (It is one of the more potent drinks, able to intoxicate quickly and effectively- so drink responsibly!)
- The word vodka stems from the Russian word, vodka, which means water.
