So...i was talking to my mum about Sake that my carer for when im out drank (stronger then plain vodka and burns way more apparently) when i give her this demo of what i think it is i explained it to her by taking a 40% alcohol pure vodka and pouring a tiny bit (less then a shot glass) into a cup and then just drunk it.

Personally it tasted great and the burn was amazing (not like horrible spicy burns )

So why don't people drink vodka straight...also does anyone think that tiny bit would be enough to get someone relatively new buzzed because i feel dizzy xD

1860, vodka, the national drink, was the source of 40% of the government's revenue.
1911, vodka comprised 89% of all alcohol consumed in Russia.
When a bottle is opened, it is customary to finish it.

Don't get in a drinking contest with an elderly Russian woman, you'll lose.

I dislike the flavor of vodka. I'll drink bourbons and whiskeys which might have more than 40% ABV but not vodka straight. Even gin is preferable to vodka for drinking straight.

Something about the flavor. It's probably an acquired taste. Vodka reminds me of one too many of my drunken college nights.

I dont like drinking vodka straight. EWW i mean if its been in the freezer then that helps.
Plus the stuff mixes with almost literally everything.
I probably have never tried a really good really expensive vodka though.

And i do not understand why sake has a reputation of being stroung and having a burn???
I bought a bottle once and it was weak and horrible.
I've tried it in a Japanese restaurant where they serve it warmed in the little vase thingy.
I enjoyed that but its not strong like whiskey. No burn?

Scotch, i will drink straight. As long as its decent. I love drinking good scotch straight. With ice is preferable though.

Vodka can be made from many things, the process is what makes it vodka. The most common three, in order of harshest to least are potatoes, grains, and grapes. Personally I enjoy potato vodka with a single distillation straight in a shot, or possibly with a drop of hot sauce or a bit of pepper.

If we're talking straight sipping or on the rocks instead of shots, I am all about the rum. Rum is life. I may have too much blood in my rum system, I should go fix that...

As to drinking contests, they largely paid for my booze, food, and gas through college. I went undefeated. Even the Czechoslovakian and Russian exchange students were impressed. I blame my Polish ancestry. The only person that ever gave me a run for my money called himself a Brit, but I think his accent sounded a pinch Scottish. I do know enough about those politics though not to inquire and to simply roll with the assertion.

I'm not sure what you are on about here, but sake is a wine. Sake doesn't come in stronger variations.
There is Shōchū, which is a bit stronger than sake but not as strong as vodka or whisky. Which is also a completely different drink.

That said, I drink most alcoholic beverages pure but have a preference for either beer or whisky.

Well google told me there was stronger sake but anyhow ill have to ask him where he got it but he got Sake for a board meeting with the japanese directors at his job and it was stronger then vodka.

If it was not sake i don't know what it was i know it was rice wine though.
