Today is National Vodka Day.

That’s right, folks. There’s a day in this fine nation just for vodka. A day that celebrates the crystal clear, almost tasteless spirit that has kept folks in the “vodka belt” company for…well…a really long time. [Since 1405, maybe?]

Russian Standard Vodka sent me these recipes–hence their brand of vodka being used in all of the cocktails.
