Vodka is not just one of the best alcoholic drinks around; it also ranks among the most popular and flavored drinks for liquor lovers around the world! Vodka is guaranteed to blow you away with its alcoholic content that ranges between 45 and 55 percent. 

Most liquor lovers fall in love with this drink during their first taste of it. Accordingly, it’s little wonder why it’s highly celebrated all around the world. So, let’s take a little journey through the history of Vodka.

Brief History of The Vodka Drink 

The origin of vodka can be traced to Russia, in the 14th century. It is said that the name vodka is derived from the Russian word ‘voda’, which means water. At first, the alcoholic drink was only popular in places like Poland, Russia, and the Balkan states. After the second world war, however, its popularity began to grow in America and Europe as the renown of the liquor spread, and it was then consumed in more of these regions. 

In Russia, this drink is mostly consumed in chilled and unmixed small glasses accompanied by appetizers. Elsewhere, it is mostly used in mixed drinks because of its highly neutral nature. It can also be mixed with beverage drinks or added to cocktails for a better-flavored taste.
