To Get The Most Out Of Your Vodka, Infuse Your Own

If you're a human being who attended college then you have likely had a shot of vodka. If you were doing it right, you took several shots on several occasions and consistently wondered if the resulting hangover was worth whatever you couldn't remember. But while vodka shots have remained consistently popular over the years, the types of vodka we drink have changed drastically.

When I was in college in the late '90s, slamming a shot of chilled vodka before licking sugar from the back of your hand and biting a lemon wedge was the fashionable way to remedy excess studying. Back then Absolut, Stolichnaya and other brands were just getting into the infused spirits game, and you could soon order a shot of Absolut Kurant, or orange flavored Stoli. The flavors made the shots easier to get down, but they still tasted like shit. The hangover was just as bad.
