Question for vodka lovers

MEgal | Oct 25, 2006 03:59 PM

I normally am a wine and beer drinker, however, I recently picked up a bottle of Cold River Vodka to try. While I sipped a little of it straight up to get a sense of the flavor, I then ended up using it to make a pomegranate martini with a Stirrings mixer. While it was very good, I couldn't really taste the vodka. What is the best way to enjoy a premium vodka that lets you taste it, without it being too strong? When I was younger, I just drank vodkas and tonics, but I think I was using the cheaper, $10 and under bottles, so I didn't care about the flavor. I also enjoy Cosmos, but again, then you are mostly tasting the cranberry and lime. Thanks.
