Vodkas are to strong and taste like rubbing alcohol. Five Wives opened my eyes to a new favorite Vodka. These small batch liquors are smooth and refreshing. I first tried it straight out of the bottle, it was great warm out of the bottle and chilled as well. I know I had to come up with a fun drink for a bridal shower.
