Vodka

Many drink historians place the origins of vodka anywhere from the 700s to the 1400s. However, most agree that it began somewhere in the “vodka belt.” The vodka belt is located in Eastern, Central, and Northern Europe and includes countries such as Russia, Poland, and Ukraine.

 

Poland wins for finding the word “wódka” in court documents in the 1400s, but that word meant it was for medicines. Poland used the word “gorzeć” when vodka was for drinking. In 1534, a Polish pharmacist named Stefan Falimirz published O Ziolach / O Mocy Ich (“On Herbs and Their Potency”), which is believed to be one of the first documents containing the word “vodka.” This luxurious illustrated book gave details for the preparation of over seventy vodka-based medicines.

 

Every country in the vodka belt had their own words for vodka and they translate into phrases such as “little water,” “burnt water,” “to burn,” “ardent water,” and “the water of life.”

 

In 1789, Johann Tobias Lowitz developed charcoal filtration for vodka. Before this, vodka tended to be infused with various fruits and herbs, so yes, it was flavored. Today, vodka is the number-one best-selling spirit in the world.

The Oprah Winfrey Show 

The Oprah show could make someone famous overnight. Any product mentioned skyrocketed in sales, and the same is true for cocktails.

Lemon Drop shot and shooters had been around in the late 1980s and 1990s, but when the “Martini Bar” craze started (late 1990s–mid-2000s), it was common to see Lemon Drop Martinis, so bartenders could easily make it.

 

The Pomegranate Martini was a different story. Bars did not carry pomegranate-flavored anything (juice, flavored liquor, syrup, or liqueur).
