This is a simple pasta dish that doesn’t take a great deal of effort but tastes good. You won’t be able to taste the vodka but you do get the heat of it coming through. If you are serving the dish to friends it might be an idea not to tell them about the vodka until after they have finished their meal as knowing there is vodka in it does distract you somewhat as you try to detect whether you can taste any offensive flavour with every bite. Perhaps tell them half way through and see if it affects their perception of the dish!

How to Make Vodka

Vodka is a neutral spirit that tends not to have a distinctive flavour or taste in its untampered form. Vodka is generally not aged and can be made using a range of accessible materials and ingredients such as potatoes, grains, sugars, fruit and most things that are capable of being fermented. This makes it a spirit that is easy to produce in a relatively short space of time.

It was primarily used for medicinal purposes and as an ingredient in gun powder during the Middle Ages but during the 14th century became an established drink in Russia and by the middle of the 16th century was recognised as the national drink of Poland and Finland. But what is vodka made from?
