October 4th is National Vodka Day 2010!
I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade… And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.

5 Great American-Made Vodkas
By James Patrick Kelly
Americans love vodka. But, over the years, most of the vodka consumed in the U.S. has come from European countries. Some aficionados think that grain vodka, usually made from wheat and rye, is far superior to those made from potato. Wheat vodkas such as Stolichnaya (from Russia) and Absolut (from Sweden) are extremely popular among American drinkers. Most potato vodkas are made in Poland.

Here’s a look at few domestic vodkas that rival their Euro counterparts.
