Various bottles of vodka

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Russian во́дка (vódka), diminutive of вода́ (vodá, water). Historical documentary research of V. Pokhlyobkin suggests the derivation via the usage "dilution (of distillate) with water", as used in expressions "vodka of grain wine" and similar; хле́бное вино́ (xlébnoje vinó, grain wine) is an archaic Russian name for vodka.

The standard of identity is from the Code of Federal Regulations, title 27, section 5.22(a)(1).

Noun[edit]

vodka (plural vodkas)

  1. A clear distilled alcoholic liquor made from grain mash
    • 1932, Maurice Baring, chapter 20, Friday's Business[1]:
      Eurydice pointed to the cupboard, and sat down on the low divan with folded hands, and looked at the floor. She was quite white. Elsa made her drink a glass of vodka.
  2. A serving of the above beverage
  3. (US standard of identity) Neutral spirits distilled (or treated after distillation) so as to have no distinctive character, aroma, taste, or color
