because it might be as enjoyable and sweet as the piano action by sand system on buddha bar's siddharta - spirit of buddha bar volume 2 disc 1 track 7.

I like manhattans. martinis are pretty good too, when they will use gin. gin & tonics are really good in the summer.

You didn't ask anything...you said "These both have bitters and absolut" and I said "...Have you been listening to The National recently?"

End quote. :)

- gin and tonic, in summer
- rye and soda

Hmm. I already posted my favorite go-to drink (vodka collins) but I'll admit I also really like long islands.

For cheap, fast mixed drinks I have taken to ordering vodka + pineapple.

I had a great martini made for me recently that consisted of pear absolut, splash of lemon, and simple syrup. I guess I'm partial to vodka + lemon + sugar drinks.

Vodka mixes well. Also there's GOOD vodka out there.

Try the Danzka grape fruit vodka. It's delicious.

Mostly nny's first sentence.

But for me personally, it's the only liquor I've tried that doesn't seem to make me sick if I've had enough to be drunk.

i've never had a (real) vodka that i liked on its own merit. i've infused some of my own stuff, but that isn't vodka, that's flavoured spirits.

i am suspicious of marketing in the vodka industry after reading an old nyt blind taste test where (if i recall correctly) smirnoff placed first.
