Pour CHACHA vodka into a glass.What’s your go to vodka, and do you mix it or drink it straight or neat? 

    Exploring and finding your preferred choice of vodka involves a combination of research, tasting, and understanding your own palate. Each person is different, and some may like a harder taste over a lighter taste.

    As we are VODKA sommeliers, here’s a few tips to help you out:

    Understand the Basics: Vodka can be made from various raw materials like wheat, rye, corn, potatoes, and even grapes. Different materials can impart subtle flavours and mouth feels to the vodka.

    Start with Recommendations: Ask friends or experts for their favourites. Look for award-winning brands or highly-reviewed vodkas to start your exploration.

    Environment: Taste in a quiet environment where you can concentrate.

    Glassware: Use a clean glass, ideally a tulip-shaped one to concentrate the aroma.

    Appearance: Look at the vodka; it should be clear with no impurities.

    Smell: Take a moment to smell the vodka. Good vodka should have a neutral smell with maybe a slight note of the base ingredient.

    Taste: Take a small sip. Let it sit in your mouth for a few seconds. Try to identify any flavours or aftertastes. Some vodkas may have a creamy, spiced, or even fruity profile depending on the ingredient and distillation process.

    Finish: Notice how the vodka feels as you swallow. It should be smooth without a harsh burn.

    Mixing: While tasting neat vodka is essential, most people consume vodka in cocktails or mixed drinks. Try your chosen vodkas in your favourite drinks. Some might mix better than others.

    Price Point: Vodkas come at various price points. While higher-priced vodkas might offer a more refined taste, there are many mid-range and even lower-priced vodkas that offer excellent quality.

    Country of Origin: Some people have preferences for vodkas from specific countries. Each country might have its own traditions and standards for vodka production.

    Continue Exploring: Your palate will evolve over time. It’s always a good idea to try new brands or types occasionally.

    Remember, the best vodka for you is the one you enjoy the most, whether it’s sipped neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail.

  • The Best Recipe of a Vodka Soda Drink

    Mixing vodka with soda water is a straightforward way to enjoy a light and refreshing cocktail. This is commonly known as a “Vodka Soda” or “Vodka Water“.

    Here’s how you can make it:

    Glass with vodka soda Ingredients:

    • Vodka (1.5 ounces or 45 ml)
    • Soda water (club soda or sparkling water)
    • Ice cubes
    • Lemon or lime wedge (optional, for garnish)


    1. Fill a glass with ice cubes.
    2. Pour in the vodka (1.5 ounces or 45 ml).
    3. Top off the glass with soda water.
    4. Give it a gentle stir to mix the vodka and soda water.
    5. Optionally, garnish with a lemon or lime wedge.

    This cocktail is popular because it’s simple to make and has a clean, crisp taste. The soda water adds effervescence, while the vodka provides the alcohol content. You can adjust the ratio of vodka to soda water based on your preference for a stronger or milder drink. 

    How Vodka Soda Started?

    The vodka soda is a simple cocktail consisting of vodka and soda water, usually served over ice with a lime or lemon wedge. Its origins are a bit hard to pin down, but the drink likely gained popularity due to its simplicity and the clear, neutral taste of vodka. The low-calorie aspect of soda water also makes it a popular choice for those looking to enjoy an alcoholic beverage without consuming too many calories or sugar.

    The vodka soda is essentially a variation of the highball, a family of cocktails made by mixing a base spirit with a larger proportion of a non-alcoholic mixer. Highballs have been around since at least the late 19th century, and vodka sodas likely became more popular as vodka became more widely available and marketed as a “clean” mixable spirit.

    It’s a staple in bars and homes alike because it’s easy to make, requires few ingredients, and is relatively light in flavour, making it appealing to a wide range of people.

    Never forget to use quality ingredients because it really makes a difference! Using fresh lime juice and good quality cranberry juice will greatly enhance the flavour of your cosmopolitan. Adjust the proportions of the ingredients to suit your taste preferences.


    The cosmopolitan cocktail, often simply referred to as a “cosmo”, is a classic cocktail with a history that dates back several decades. While there are different accounts of its origin, the most widely accepted story places its creation in the 1970s or 1980s.

    The exact creator of the cosmopolitan is debated, but it gained popularity in the 1990s due to its frequent appearance on the TV show “Sex and the City.” The cocktail’s rise to fame was largely attributed to the characters of the show regularly ordering and enjoying it.

    The classic cosmopolitan recipe typically includes vodka, cranberry juice, lime juice, and triple sec, all shaken together and served in a martini glass. It’s known for its pinkish hue and tart-sweet flavour profile. Over time, variations of the cosmopolitan have emerged, incorporating different types of spirits, fruit juices, and creative twists.

    The cosmopolitan’s association with elegance, modernity, and sophistication has made it a staple in bars and cocktail menus around the world. Its iconic status has solidified its place in cocktail history.


    Cosmopolitan cocktails have remained popular over the years, and while the classic recipe is timeless, there have been some trends and variations that have emerged to give the cosmopolitan a modern twist. Here are a few cosmopolitan trends you might find interesting:

    1. Flavour Variations: Bartenders and mixologists have experimented with different fruit flavours to create variations of the classic cosmopolitan. You might find versions that use pomegranate, blood orange, or even tropical fruit juices to add unique flavours.
    2. Craft Ingredients: With the rise of craft cocktails, there’s a trend toward using high-quality, artisanal ingredients. This includes using small-batch vodka, freshly squeezed juices, and house-made syrups to elevate the cosmopolitan’s flavour profile.
    3. Herb and Spice Infusions: Some cosmopolitan variations incorporate herbs like basil or thyme, or spices like ginger or cardamom, to add complexity and depth to the cocktail.
    4. Low-Calorie and Health-Conscious Versions: As people become more health-conscious, there’s a trend toward creating cosmopolitan recipes with lower sugar content or using alternative sweeteners. Additionally, using fresh, organic ingredients is gaining traction.
    5. Sustainable Practices: Many bars and mixologists are focusing on sustainable practices, which can extend to cocktails. This might involve using locally sourced ingredients, reducing waste, and using eco-friendly spirits and mixers.
    6. Global Influences: The cosmopolitan has taken on international influences, with variations inspired by different cultures and ingredients from around the world.
    7. Presentation: Creative garnishes and glassware can make a cosmopolitan stand out. From edible flower garnishes to uniquely shaped glasses, presentation trends can add to the overall drinking experience.
    8. Spiked Seltzer and Ready-to-Drink Cosmopolitans: With the popularity of spiked seltzers and ready-to-drink cocktails, you might come across canned or bottled cosmopolitan beverages that offer convenience and portability.

    So there you have it and we hope it helps.

    ENJOY your COSMO with CHACHA!
