Vodka

(Polishwódka [ˈvutka]Russianводка [ˈvotkə]) is a clear distilled alcoholic beverage originating from Poland and Russia, composed primarily of water and ethanol, but sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings. Traditionally it is made by distilling the liquid from cereal grains or potatoes that have been fermented, although some modern brands use fruits or sugar as the base.
