When we think of vodka, most of us think of that clean-cut drink known for its more subtle flavors. Precisely what those depend on if the vodka has a wheat, rye, corn, or potato base.
But over the years, a lovely array of flavored vodkas have begun to hit the market. These vodkas take the original taste and pair it with something else to give the old classic a fun and exciting twist.
