Drink Recommendations

Anybody got a good vodka recommendation?

I like a good vodka martini and bloody mary from time to time. I typically buy Grey Goose because, well, damn it's smooth. But it's pricey. I've managed to find a rum and a tequila that aren't nearly as pricey as the top shelf, yet really hits the spot. No such luck so far on vodka. Skyy didn't do it for me, cool bottle but that's where it ended.

I'll pony up for the Goose because it's dependable, but I love finding those diamonds in the rough that buck the 'pay for what you get' trend. Whatcha got?

Re: Drink Recommendations

Ketel One, Grey Goose, Stoli, Absolut (which is kinda eh, bottom/middle shelf for me. It's the budget alcohol), Belvedere.

Won't touch anything else.

I'm not a big fan of Ciroc but people seem to like it. I think it's crap.

Re: Drink Recommendations

Dump the overpriced GG and pick up some Tito's. Best bang for the buck by far.

Re: Drink Recommendations

I enjoy GG but just like wine there are great options that don't cost an arm and a leg. I love finding those.

Re: Drink Recommendations

By the way, if anybody's looking for an inexpensive light rum that mixes well give Olo a run.

Seriously, if you don't love it I'll be surprised. It's great stuff, I always have a bottle in my freezer.

Re: Drink Recommendations

For rum i cant recommend Ron Rico enough. Bought it one day for the awesome name and fell in love. Excellent for mixing in everything. Very sweet compared to other rums.

Also Castillo Silver is pretty good, it has that Bacardi type rum taste (which im not a big fan of, but i think most people are). I think Castillo is Bacardi in a cheaper bottle. Probably best in frozen drink mixes.

I can personally drink very cheap rum. I dont really do it with any other type liquor, at least willingly.

Re: Drink Recommendations

I'm a Sky vodka drink but I also mix mine with stuff that makes its a waste to buy the top shelf stuff. Yesterday on the beach we made a very large batch of madrases (sp) 1/3 vodka 1/3 orange juice, 1/3 cramberry juice.

Re: Drink Recommendations

Yo Matty, seriously, thanks for the Tito's recommendation. Just picked some up yesterday, saving me like $15 compared to GG, and it's way better. Having a bloody mary now while watching the British Open, with a stalk of celery and a fresh green bean from my garden.

Great vodka. Actually has some flavor compared to the GG, you can smell the corn origins. I love it, can't see myself ever going back to the Goose.

Thanks.

Re: Drink Recommendations

Svedka Vodka is a must try. My buddy turned me on to it about 5 or so years ago it's priced right and to me its beats out Smirnoff and Grey Goose. My buddy has run liquor stores for some time now and knows his stuff. Look up Svedka its been rated high and has received awards for vodka. I've never tried Titos but seems interesting I'm going to have to give it a try.
