Oddly enough, I have a hard time with anything Vodka. Can't stand the taste of it unless it's heavily mixed with other spirits/juices/sodas.
but that's how you are supposed to drink Vodka. Its supposed to take the flavor of whatever you mix it with. Vodka, *good* Vodka, doesn't really have a defining taste of its own, its very bland.
which is why you see it mixed with everything, and you 40 million different "Flavors" of Vodka. Vodka plays nice with just about everything.
imo, drinking Vodka straight is a waste. if you are gonna drink something straight, without much in the way of a chaser, then drink something that has flavor to it, like a good Whiskey, Tequila, Rum, or Brandy.
