Vodka’s alcoholic content usually ranges between 35 to 50 percent by volume; the standard RussianLithuanian, and Polish vodkas are 40 percent alcohol by volume (80 proof).
Vodka is traditionally drunk neat in the vodka belt — Eastern Europe and the Nordic countries — and elsewhere. It is also commonly used in cocktails and mixed drinks, such as the bloody Mary, the screwdriver, the White Russian, the vodka tonic, and the vodka martini.
