Vodka marketing is a scam. Absolut is the most money you should spend on vodka unless you want your friends to think you’re cool. Vodka is supposed to be tasteless.

I buy the big kirkland bottle from Costco.

I prefer potato based vodka if I'm making a vodka martini or a drink where you can taste the vodka. Otherwise for a mixed drink any will do.

First try Taaka, then anything you taste that is better than taaka is good vodka! Clean no smell is a good vodka.

You dont need to spend a ton on Vodka. You can get a damn good Vodka for under $18 a fifth.

I was a Ketel guy and then I tried JT Meleck which is a local rice vodka. It’s really smooth with a sake like finish. My wife and I are big fans. It runs around $22 a fifth and mixes well with everything.

Svedka or Smirnoff are my go tos- Dripping Springs and Deep Eddy are distilled in TX and are cheaper than Tito’s. Round Rock (Albertson’s House) is not bad, either. Ketel for dirty martinis.

re: What do you look for in a good vodka?
Ever since this past summer with covid and everything I've been drinking a LOT of vodka.

It comes down to three things really for me: viscosity, sweetness/dryness, and smoothness.

Was a really big Tito's fan. I like the viscosity and smoothness of it and it's not too expensive. It is, however, definitely on the sweet side.

Living here in Michigan I was introduced to Valentine vodka a few months ago. It hits in all three: not to thick or thin, super smooth and definitely on the dry side rather than sweet.

It's expensive: $30+ for a fifth, so I never really buy it for myself, but it has definitely given me an appreciation for more expensive/small batch vodkas.

I should add, like any liquor, the more expensive vodkas like Valentine's are made to be appreciated without mixing. I shoot a lot of vodka. Some might describe me as an alcoholic.

My everyday go to is Tito's, but I also really like Russian Standard if I'm feeling frugal.

The name Vitali (Albertsons) or Caliber (Wal-Mart).

High quality despite the cheap price.

Sobieski is a real good vodka for the price, about $14. Only place I've found it is CVS. Our local CVS, oddly enough, has a real good liquor section.

Stoli
Tito's
Zyr

In that order.
Stoli mixed with lime and water. Tito's mixed with OJ. Zyr, on the rocks.

Now I drink Svedka

I buy the Kirkland's brand. The 1.75 liter sells for $13 and is fine for mixing. I use it to make Bloody Mary's, Screwdrivers and also mixed with cranberry juice for a refreshing cocktail.
