Russian Standard is clean, perfectly clear and smooth. Although a premium brand it can often be found on the supermarket shelf with an offer sticker, making it all the more appealing!
It is hard to believe that Russian Standard has only been around since 2007 in the UK. From its first launch it exploded onto the market and firmly positioned itself as a leading premium brand vodka. The brand originally created in 1998 by the Russian Standard company purports itself as being proudly Russian through and through: raw Russian materials as well as distilled and bottled in Russia. Within Russia it has a 40% market share selling more than 3 million cases per year.
Currently a repertoire consisting of the Original, the Gold, the Platinum, and the Imperia, look out for the release of Russian Standard flavours as the owner, Roustam Tariko, has declared war on Smirnoff’s rather large slice of the pie.
Vodka and Ice Tea and Iced Tea Vodka are two very different things. One is basically a cocktail while the other is a vodka infusion. Really the latter is just tea flavoured vodka that has been either artificially flavoured or infused using tea leaves. Brands of tea flavoured vodka are detailed below.
Warming heat of vodka plus silky smooth chocolate equals heavenly, boozy simplicity in a glass.
This cocktail is pure indulgence in a glass. In fact it is so scrummy and filling that it could easily be a desert. If you like your cocktails thick, creamy and chocolaty then a frozen mudslide is definitely a winner!
It’s a classic that has caused a zillion number of smirks, giggles or outright fits of laughter when ordered at any bar on the planet and if you don’t find it vaguely amusing then you must be lacking a sense of humour! It is a simple enough cocktail consisting of just 2 spirits and a bit of juice but sometimes simplicity is needed in life and indulging in good old sex on the beach is what’s required! Tee. Hee. Hee.
This is both a popular and potent classic cocktail with vodka being just one of 5 spirits that make up the toxic mix of alcohol.
