|What is Vodka Day?|
Vodka Day is a national American beverage holiday (much like Rum Day and Margarita Day), that celebrates a popular alcoholic drink. Vodka accounts for 20% of the hard liquor sold in North America, and it remains a favorite for neat shots and mixed drinks including martinis and the famous Bloody Mary. Because vodka is available in almost tasteless, odorless forms, it is serves as an excellent base for many drinks. However, vodkas that are pre-infused with sweet or fruity flavors are also in vogue.
Vodka distillers, importers, and distributors draw attention to this holiday as part of their marketing efforts and may host events or sponsor giveaways in its honor. First reaching popular awareness in 2009, Vodka Day is part of the trend toward making every day a celebration of food and drink. Taco Day and Vodka Day coincide, with both falling on October 4th.
