Vodka is a must-have for any well-stocked home bar. It's the base of any number of classic cocktails, especially the lighter ones that are best for a balmy summer night. Part of why it's so popular and versatile is that it's all but flavorless. That is, unless it's flavored. Or, well, bad.
Look in the vodka section of your local liquor store and you'll find vodkas that are wildly divergent in terms of quality and price. And the expensive ones aren't always the best, either. The best vodkas are smooth, crisp and delicious. The bad ones? They might as well be paint thinner. Don't try to guess which is which. Here are popular vodka brands ranked worst to best.
