Vodka does not contain any sugar at all. The main ingredients in vodka are water and ethanol.
Vodka is made using a distillation process and is normally made using any of the following:
  • Grains
Grain based vodkas are known to be the sweetest of the different types of vodka, giving less after taste and burning effects than other vodkas.
  • Potatoes
Potato vodkas have a slight oiliness to them, and some tend to have a slight harshness as well. They also burn more than other vodkas, and can take some getting used to.
  • Molasses
Molasses is used in many types of vodka, and is also quite sweet. The vodka that is made from molasses is generally the cheapest form of the drink available.

Vodka is traditionally drunk neat, and cold, in many countries throughout the world. Some countries prefer to add mixers to the drink, to take away the harshness of the flavor that some vodka provides. Common mixers used in vodka are cola, tonic water, and orange juice and tomato juice. The first recorded use of vodka is from the middle ages, where the drink was made for medicinal use.
Vodka can be made from many different ingredients, although they need to be plant matter that is naturally high in sugar and starch. The traditional forms of vodka are made using grains, molasses or potatoes, and the countries known as the vodka belt are pushing for all other types of vodka to be renamed. The countries that are in the vodka belt are Poland, Russia, Belarus, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Norway, Iceland, Sweden, Greenland, Ukraine, and some areas of Slovakia and Hungary.
