28 October 2011. A Russian POV… Some Amazin’ Things About Vodka…

Russians believe that vodka is the purest alcoholic beverage in the world…

******

Did you know that a litre (33.8 fluid ounces) of vodka weighs 953 grammes (2.1 pounds)?

******

On 22 August 1941, Resolution nr 56200 of the State Defense Committee mandated that all the front-line fighters in the army would receive 100 grammes (3.5 fluid ounces) of vodka daily.

******

Before drinking it, you should chill vodka to at least 8-10 degrees (46-50 degrees Fahrenheit). The colder you chill vodka, the more you can hide “off” tastes, so, unscrupulous watering-holes will serve poor quality rotgut vodka at very cold temperatures.

******

Vodka came to Russia in 1429 from… ITALY! YOU GOT IT! Those Guinea party-animals taught us Russkies how to make and drink vodka! We’ve not looked back since…

******

Vodka is at its best within 12 months of its manufacture… don’t say that I didn’t warn ya…
