Vladimir Vodka Recipes
Vladimir vodka is used in the preparation of a number of mixed drinks and gelatin shots as discussed below:
a. Gelatin Shots- Also known as vodka jelly, or jello shots in Untied States of America, these are party dessert gels made with an alcoholic ingredient which may be rum, tequila, grain alcohol, or most significantly vodka of which the Vladimir variation is commonly used. The alcoholic ingredient serves as a substitute for water or fruit juice which is used to congeal the gel by thickening it. Though an interesting theory associating the invention of vodka jelly to American satirist Tom Leherer as a measure to tackle the restriction on consumption of alcohol has been formulated, lacking substantial evidence, it is not supported much. These gelatin desserts seem to have an abv of 30 %. Vladimir vodka, is often used in combination with other vodkas in the preparation of these jelly desserts and it is rarely used as a single alcohol in such preparations.
b. Cocktail drinks- Vladimir vodka recipes suggest combination with other alcoholic/non- alcoholic beverages for parties.
