Various bottles of vodka

Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Slavic voda, woda, meaning water, plus the diminutive suffix -ka. 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; хлебное вино (xlebnoje vino, 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
