When I first started drinking spirits I drank vodka mixed with juice or other flavourings. The mixers pretty much masked the flavour of the vodka. Vodka doesn't really have much taste IMO. I've since grown to love Gin, Bourbon, Tequila, Rum etc., without strong mixers allowing the flavour of the spirits to shine. I haven't drank vodka in years now. Vodka was like training wheels for me. Anyone else agree?
