Clear, clean, and consummately mixable, vodka is the go-to drink of the rough commoner and the nightclub VIP alike. And right now, thanks to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, it's also a political statement. Happily, you can get a great bottle of vodka for less than $30 that's made nowhere near Russia, including some brands you may have thought were Russian, but aren't. Some are household names, others are obscure up-and-comers. All, however, punch above their proof and their price tags.
