I like to buy those cheap small bottles of vodka and put it in a bottle of soda and was wondering if anybody else did this.

Mixing spirits with soda ruins the spirit and ruins the soda. Miniatures are for alcoholics. If you want to drink vodka properly, put the bottle in the freezer, and drink a shot straight. best after some fish and onion on rye crackers. The fish you want is surströmming. You'll have to buy online, but it'll exceed expectations.

How does getting liquored up tie into your strategy for retaining your independence?

What does the mixing do to the spirits? There are many drinks that include soda. Rum & coke, Jack & coke are two right off the back.

Yes, this can be done for sure. I have had vodka and mountain dew. Pretty good.

And they both suck. They're for children who want to hide the flavor of the spirit behind a bunch of sugar. Same as gin and koolaid.

Saying mixed drinks "suck" is like saying a particular flavor of ice-cream "sucks" because you don't happen to like it.

;)

No. Rum and coke is an artless concoction that only exists cause it gets you fucked up on substandard spirits with the flavor masked by ultra sweet soda. I can appreciate the irony of this in a thread about vodka, but good vodka has some charm.

edit:
From wikipedia...

Drink critics often have a low opinion of the cocktail. Writer Wayne Curtis called it "a drink of inspired blandness",[6] while Jason Wilson of The Washington Post called it "a lazy person's drink".[16] Troy Patterson of Slate called it "the classic mediocre Caribbean-American highball", which "became a classic despite not being especially good".[18]

Sometimes you want to sip on a nice Lagavulin and sometimes you want to figure out exactly how much alcohol it takes to override the LSD. There are no wrong answers here.

If you got a cheap Whisky lying around it's usually not bad with a coke.

Say what you will, but you can't deny it's popularity.

Frankly in MY opinion all soda is nasty and drinking most hard liquor straight-up is roughly equivalent to intentionally chugging down kerosene taste-wise.

Cheap vodka is already ruined from the start, but mixing it with soda makes it tolerable.
But the best way to drink vodka properly is in a white russian.

A nice old fashion for me please. But if I want to just get a drunk, like on an airplane, I'll take a jack and coke or ginger ale and vodka.
