Items you will need

  • Extra Brita water filter
  • Funnel
  • Large baggie

Expensive vodka is water and alcohol. Bargain brands of vodka are made with inexpensive ingredients and have impurities in that causes the vodka to have a questionable taste. The taste can be improved using a Brita carbon activated filter to remove the impurities. The vodka not be good enough to drink "neat", but it will improve the flavor of cocktails prepared with it.

Step 1

Place a new filter into your Brita pitcher. This filter will not be used for anything other than vodka.

Step 2

Pour the bargain-brand vodka into the filter, allowing it to pass into the pitcher. Continue to fill the filter as it drains until the bottle of vodka is empty.

Step 3

Repeat step 2 at least 5 times or until you are happy with the taste of the vodka.

Step 4

Pour the vodka back into the bottle using the funnel.

Step 5

Remove the filter from the pitcher and replace with the filter that will be used for water. Keep the vodka filter in a baggie labeled "vodka" so it won't be accidentally used for water.
