You know one of the things I love? Russian Standard Vodka! I am actually a big fan of vodka...Over the years I have tried many brands....like the Three Olives brand, 360 Chocolate (very desserty, Absolut...can't remember any other brands but...yum.
The kind folks at Russian Standard graced me with a lovely bottle, a cool bottle, of their vodka. I love the label.
The taste is so smooth...it isn't flavored, it's just the silky taste. It doesn't interfere with the rest of the cocktail, doesn't overpower the drink. Yet it's also a sipping vodka - great mouth feel. Highly recommended but I will still try other vodkas...keeping a bottle of Russian Standard in our freezer though, mind you. :-)
So the other night Doug decides to mix up gin and vodka martinis. No complaints...it's nice to compare, right?
Here is Doug's gin martini, made with Boodles gin.
I prefer my martini to be made with vodka. (love those olives)
Thank you so much to Russian Standard for sending me a bottle of their finest.
