Although vodka has been overshadowed over the past few years with preferences for tequila, gin and more exotic liquors like Brazilian cachaça, it remains the most versatile, neutral and easy of adult drinks. Thanks to its neutral color, mild flavor and tendency to be strong yet easy to down, vodka is an old-time favorite that spans generations. Below we've put together a concoction that includes the cleanest, boldest and most interesting-tasting vodkas on the market. So skip the simple syrup and get your ID out – it’s time to party.
