Heh! Fooled you didn’t I? No, ladies and gentlemen, I am not going into launch into a monologue on the important of having faith in these troubled times. I thought I’d share some interesting facts about the vodka, one of world’s most popular spirits, instead:
– It is distilled from fermented grain or potatoes
– Alcohol content ranges from 35 : 70 % (ouch!)
– According to the Vodka Museum (St Petersburg, Russia and definitely on my to see list if I make it there!) the perfect percentage is supposed to be 38%
– Some well known vodkas include Chopin (Polish), Stolichnaya (Russian), Helsinki (Ukranian), Absolut (Sweden), Finlandia (Finland), Grey Goose (France), Skyy & Smirnoff (USA)
Anyway, after that gyaan on vodkas, how can you not want to pour yourself a peg (unless you’re the teetotaller kind)? Ferrari & Co have organized a Vodkathon on April 1 in Bangalore and promise it’s not an April Fool’s joke so here’s another opportunity to indulge in your favourite spirit!
