VODKA– ORIGINS, STYLES, FLAVORS, PAIRING & STANDARDS
Vodka’s lack of flavor allows it to be mixed with many numbers of other spirits, juices, and mixers for high versatility. The neutrality, or lack of flavor allows Vodka to be easily flavored with other ingredients and has helped to make Vodka as popular as it is today.
With so many styles and flavor profiles, there are plentiful samples of Vodka to choose from. And there’s the problem. With so many brands to select from it is often difficult to make a selection at that bar or restaurant, or to know what to mix it with.
This course is aimed at fixing all that!
