Russian Ice Vodka - "The Glorious Traditions of Russian Victories".
I'd intended to shoot the entire bottle, but found it a bit difficult as I'm still one-handed after my thumb surgery, so this is just the label.
Why vodka? Well, I'm learning it's a Russian cure-all. I still have a large bandage on my hand was instructed by the surgeon to inject vodka through the bandage. Two weeks out & my thumb is horribly swollen & I have a large hematoma where the tourniquet was. The solution? A vodka compress. Doesn't seem to be working thus far. Maybe if I drank the stuff I'd feel better...
Unbelievably, you can't buy rubbing alcohol in drugstores here because alcoholics might buy & drink it. In its stead, vodka is the perfect distillation for medicinal purposes. Some people still use vodka instead of windshield washer fluid. I'm sure there are many other uses I'm unfamiliar with. (4.16.2011)
