I Have a Question About Vodka


I don’t drink booze — hell, I don’t even drink diet soda anymore — so I’m completely at a loss on one thing, and I know you alkies can help me:

Do vodkas really have different tastes?

Why are people so specific about which vodka they order at a bar?

Does it really make that much of a difference or is it just a matter of ordering a brand that’s been drilled into your head by diabolically clever marketing?

Doesn’t it just make you feel special to say, “Grey Goose and tonic, please”?

And if you order, let’s say, Skyy and they sneakily give you Svedka, would you really know the diff?
