20 Uses For Vodka You Weren’t Aware Of

The first thing that comes to mind when hearing the word “vodka” is probably boozing and having a good time. But there’s more to this drink than meets the eye. It’s a distilled beverage, primary composed of water (the base) and ethanol. Normally is comprised only of fermented cereal or potatoes, but big brands also use fruit and sugar just to add to the flavor. Vodka is a traditional drink to Eastern Europe mostly (Russia, Ukraine, Estonia, Poland, Latvia, Lithuania and the Czech Republic), where it’s about 40% pure alcohol! It’s meant to be drunk neat, but it can also serve as a very important ingredient in all sorts of cocktails. But the drink itself is not only a source of hangovers and headaches, it more versatile than you might think. A bottle of vodka can be the solution to many problems that might arise in a regular household. Let’s take a look at some of its many uses.
