You Should Never Order Premium Vodka For One Cocktail
Asking a bartender to add high-end vodka to your drink can really elevate an average cocktail, but sometimes, this request is just a waste of premium, expensive spirits.
A Bloody Mary is one cocktail that is simply made more expensive with premium vodka, not made any better. This drink is very strongly-flavored with many ingredients and garnishes.
The vodka in a Bloody Mary is mainly there to make the drink boozy without adding distracting flavors. There are other ways to add flavor to the drink without emptying your wallet.
Consider adding celery salt, Worcestershire sauce, and/or a dash of Tabasco to liven up your Bloody Mary. With all that flavor, you definitely won't miss the expensive vodka.
