National Vodka Day Brought To You By Tito’s
Well, not really if you assume that would mean I’m getting paid anything. No one that is paid to review products should ever be trusted for an honest opinion anyway. I learned that working in the hi-fi industry filled with self important parasites. This blog is just another expensive hobby that gives me no return other than the joy of drinking and drawing.
I just really like everything about Tito’s, which is saying a lot because I do generally dismiss Vodka as an ingredient in drinks and I also have no understanding at all on how companies can bottle shit Vodka and sell it for ridiculous money <cough.. Crystal Head..cough>. At best, Vodka is a useful way of boosting the ABV of a cocktail without affecting the flavor, at worst, it’s a shortcut to boost the ABV of a cocktail that you don’t want to taste like a cocktail because you like the idea of drinking more than actually consuming a mix of finely crafted spirits. There are, of course, exceptions.
I do, however, enjoy Vodka in chilled or ice cold shots, especially with a meal. Some of the best I’ve had was from few years ago when I took the Pretty One and her Grammy to L’viv in Ukraine, right before the Russians invaded Crimea. Several of the restaurants made their own house Horilka (I’ve been told that to call it Vodka in Ukraine is much too… Russian) and each one I had was cleaner and crisper than any I’d had before, aside from some ridiculously expensive Russian Vodka from some specialty Vodka bar in Vegas with an ice-top counter.
Tito’s is just as clean, just as crisp as any of those and when you buy a bottle you not only show your good taste, you do a little good for man’s best friend as well. Tito’s is a Vodka for dog people.
So, dump that shit Vodka you only remember drinking because your ex replied to all of your drunken texts you sent with threats of a restraining order, stay away from all of those bullshit flavored Vodkas that are just bad, unfinished liqueurs, and for all of the Elder Gods’ sake stop buying gimmicky expensive Vodkas because you can get a 750 of Tito’s for under $20. Hell, I could get a 1.75 liter bottle delivered to my door for $30. Gods bless Providence.
