    I sometimes mix cheap vodka with orange juice..................... because I am health conscious and also because I would not want to burn my vibrant, mellow, intoxicatingly sweet vocal chords with a straight shot of vodka.

    The last time I drank vodka with a russian female friend of mine we mixed it with lemon sirup and water (and then we played chess and I won! ) I had never drunk it this way before. The most part of my friends drink vodka with apple juice; it changes to drink it with the orange juice!

    For those of you with an adventerous soul, try adding a couple of cloves of garlic in a glass of vodka, let it stay a couple of hours and drink it. Tastes fantastic!

    Thanks for the tip! I'll try it one of these days.
    And by the way, remember: I know where you live...

    I think I prefer it with lemon lime skittles over garlic

    Russians are divided into snobs and slobs. Get use to it!

    (I'm a slob, f.ex.)

    Well, in many ways one of my friends would be considered a snob, but she likes to have FUN!

    A girl getting snockered on shots of vodka is fun?

    And 9 months after the party she'll remember why Mama warned her not to drink with the boys!

    Get your mind out of the gutter, JB! I was only talking about drawing a mustache on her face after she passed out!

    Good try, fantom, but why would you cut her off at the right moment if she has already passed out?

    So, Russians are divided into snobs and slobs? VM - snob or slob?

    And who is he, btw?... Anyway, you should understand: these are relative categories. For people, who snobber, than VM (whoever he is), he is a slob. For people, who slobber, - he is a snob. A dialectics.
