Vodka is a distilled liquor made from fermented rye, grain, wheat, potatoes, or sugar beet molasses. The great thing about vodka is that it is versatile and a large range of cocktails can be made with it.
Each has its own special quality; a green apple martini slips down easy, whereas a long island iced tea hits you hard and fast. A special few can handle the full flavor of a bloody mary, and cosmopolitans are a must for girls. Let us look at a few cocktails that you can try whipping up by yourself.
