“I tried to say no to vodka, but it’s 40% stronger than me”

"I tried to say no to vodka, but it’s 40% stronger than me” is a jocular one-line vodka saying that has been printed on many images. The saying was posted on Twitter on October 6, 2010.


Wikipedia: Vodka
Vodka (from Russian: водка [ˈvotkə], Polish: wódka [ˈvutka]) is a distilled beverage composed primarily of water and ethanol, sometimes with traces of impurities and flavorings. Traditionally, vodka is made by the distillation of cereal grains or potatoes that have been fermented, though some modern brands use other substances, such as fruits or sugar.

Since the 1890s, the standard Polish, Russian, Belarusian, Ukrainian, Estonian, Latvian, Lithuanian and Czech vodkas are 40% alcohol by volume ABV (80 US proof), a percentage that is widely misattributed to Dmitri Mendeleev. The European Union has established a minimum of 37.5% ABV for any “European vodka” to be named as such. Products sold as “vodka” in the United States must have a minimum alcohol content of 40%. Even with these loose restrictions, most vodka sold contains 40% ABV.
