The Russian Standart vodka
'Tis the season to imbibe, and we have really been enjoying a new Russian vodka called The Russian Standart (the Russians use a "t" instead of a "d," but you can also call it Russian Standard - they don't mind. It is better than all those other top-shelf brands - Ketel One, Grey Goose, Belvedere, you name it, it beats 'em all. The actual meaning of vodka in Russian is "little water." The Russian Standart is made in St. Petersburg, and is the #1 selling premium vodka over there.
Check this spot out...Russian madness with very pretty Russian women everywhere. We can't figure out where that one on the swing went though, after she flew through the bar.
This stuff is tremendous coming straight out of the freezer, pored over ice with a slice of lemon. The best thing of all is that it's half the price of all those other name brands with twice the flavor. Gotta hand it to those Russians...they sure know how to ferment those potatoes. Happy Holidays.
