The large bar at the Russian House showcases 97 infused vodkas from Chef Vladimir Gribkov. RICARDO B. BRAZZIELL / American-Statesman

Sample vodkas from all over the world (as well as the Russian House’s many house-infused vodkas) and enjoy appetizers, a tasting contest and music from a local DJ.

The Russian House has specialized in vodka infusions since opening — with flavors ranging from the more traditional like cucumber to more unusual ones like bacon and pistachios — and this event centering around the popular clear spirit will be a good way to learn more about it.
