If Ketel One is too pricey, try Absolut, Skyy, or Smirnoff.

But maybe bring in a bottle or two of Ketel for people who drink vodka martinis?

I would use Svedka- depending where you live it runs 19.99 for 1.75 and it’s the same company as Absolut. I love Ketel One but it can be pricey…so I use the Svedka as a back up

If Kettle is out of the budget I assume so is Grey Goose.  I think Sky and Stoli are excellENT, cheaper vodkas.  They’re both even smooth enough for shots.

I think Skyy is reasonable, but I also think Ketel One is too.lol  Hey, one thing I can’t skimp on is my liquor! lol  Have you priced Three Olives vodka or Ciroc?  They may be out of the price range too.. ok, if you HAVE to go lower, you absolutely cannot go any lower than Smirnoff.  Good luck!

Svedka, Sobieski, and Smirnoff are good vodkas at a cheaper price.  Stolichnaya is still on the higher end, close to Ketel One.

I get Skky when Ketel is too expensive.  I’m a vodka soda girl and I can barely tell the difference.  I think it’s about $10 cheaper at Costco.

I’ve always seen the price on Stoli cheaper than or about the same as Smirnoff.

@veganglam – Where do you buy your vodka?  Everywhere I go, Stolis is more expensive than Smirnoff.  If I could get Stoli for cheaper I would buy it more often because I prefer it over Smirnoff.

So would we say Smirinoff is better or worse than Absolut? 

I would say Absolut is better but I noticed Smirinoff recommended more here. In reality, I always get distracted by the Absolut flavors and never buy the regular so I can’t say I’ve ever tried to compare them straight up.

I really enjoy Three Olives. We used to be Skky lovers, but we noticed Three Olives (the big bottle) was cheaper than Skky one time so we went with that one and we’ve been hooked on it ever since.

Skyy is good, but Absolut is my favorite. I really don’t like Smirnoff (it’s too college-y for me and makes it icky next day) but I’ll drink it mixed in something! I prefer single liquor/single mixer drinks which is probably why i like absolut.

Can you get it at Sam’s Club? It’s much cheaper!

HALT THE PRESSES…. this is important stuff here. I recently learned that the Kirkland vodka from Costco (clear, square bottle) is bottled by Belvedere.Yea, seriously.

I had always been too afraid to try a giant bottle of something new that I might not like, but I have now served it to total vodka snobs, and they swear it’s the real deal.

We will be using it in our signature drink at the wedding, too!
