Vodka - probably the most famous transparent spirit that has won the hearts of many for being one of the most versatile alcohols that can be mixed into almost any cocktail. If you intend to make good use of your bar setup at home during this period of heightened alert in Singapore, why not order a few bottles of vodka online and take this time to explore and drink the many renditions of vodka cocktails?
1. Bloody Mary
The Bloody Mary is a classic cocktail, best known for its ability to help relieve hangovers (yes, with vodka) after a night of partying. The original recipe is said to have contained these seven ingredients: vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, celery salt, Tabasco and lemon juice. But as with most classic cocktails, the modern-day version of a Bloody Mary has now been altered many times over.
If you are in need of a hangover remedy and can muster up the energy to prepare a cocktail, give the classic Bloody Mary a shot.
