it's strong but good!

Advantages: very smooth, nice on a summery day
Disadvantages: very strong
I don't drink much but when I do I really enjoy it. One of my favourite alcoholic drinks is Vodka. When I have an evening out with my friends we do like to have some cocktails and I always find that the vodka-based ones are my favourite.
Smirnoff Vodka is one of the my favourite brands of Vodka. Smirnoff make a variety of products from their alcopop drinks like smirnoff Ice to their various flavoured vodkas. I do like to try their flavoured vodkas but I still think that their original Vodka is the nicest.
APparently this vodka is the world's number 1 brand of Vodka, I can see why!
This is a very strong drink, it is about 40% so if you are drinking this you have to be careful. To drink this on it's own it's very strong, it burns my throat. I know some people use this as a shot and they play drinking games with this drink, I find that very worrying as it is so strong, it isn't a nice taste on it's own in my opinion.
I like to mix my vodka with various things to make it palatable! I enjoy it in fresh orange with some tia maria, the three flavours go really well together. It's really nice to have in various cocktails as it's taste isn't of anything really specific unlike some drinks which are very strongly coffee flavoured or of coconut or something so this makes Vodka a good drink to go in cocktails.
Whenever I have had different brands of Vodka I've always been able to tell, it's not as nice as Smirnoff. I really like how smooth this is and it's refreshing on a summer's day when mixed with orange with lots of ice. Definitely my favourite brand of vodka but it is very strong so you do have to be careful.
Summary: 5 stars
