I drink a polish potato vodka (Luksusowa) with Minute Maid Valencia OJ.

After breakfast I prefer Skyy.

I do have Absolut Kurant that is bloody awful. Wifie says to drink it with cranberry, which I don't like. I use it to clean things when I need some alcohol (removing glue, things like that). Nobody who comes over has taken a shine to it either .. bummer.

At least your stomach must be.

I don't care for Absolut, it gives me heartburn every time. Level does the same, so it must be either the ingredients or distilling that Absolut uses that give me a problem.

quite a few of my co-workers are from poland,and they drink a lot of vodka and surrounding area and they say luksusowa is an excellent vodka,as they also say real vodka should be made from potatoes. I found a vodka at costco that comes from france with the costco brand on it,excellent price, and it is excellent the wife and I drink it in martini's or I like it with ginger ale and lime twist....

Hmm, I know people seem to dislike Absolut but you can often find me with a Absolut manadrin and tonic in my hand on weekends. I prefer Hanger One mandarin Blossom but often it's $3+ more per drink.

I know spring is just around the corner so I picked up my first bottle of Ruby Red of the year on Friday.

Now that's some good stuff. I haven't had it in a few years. As popular as it was becoming I half expected it to be much more expensive by now. I think at the time it was around $17 at Spec's

I have been through a few bottle of Tito's (a couple gifted by my Texas BOTL, Kenny), and think it is pretty good stuff.
