  • In Poland, drinking is a public affair; always ensure you have a group of friends with you to share your vodka.
  • Poles don’t drink vodka in cocktail form or diluted with a mixer. In fact, to traditionalists, these practices are considered practically criminal. Vodka is drunk neat, chilled (but without ice) and usually in measurements of 50ml.
  • The most common toast is na zdrowie (pronounced ‘naz-dro-v-yeh’), meaning ‘to health’.
  • Vodka is always drunk in one gulp or ‘do dna’ (‘to the bottom’), regardless of size.
  • Drinks are immediately refilled, so take some time between each toast to sip some water or have a Polish snack, such as pickles or sausage.
  • Be warned: if you’re a guest in someone’s house, your host will expect the bottle to be empty before you leave.
  • Drink responsibly! Unless you’re Russian, never try to out-drink a Pole. Miss a few turns or sip your drink in stages.

It does not Razz Polish and Russian languages evolved side by side and it's only natural that they have a lot in common Razz

Also, vodka was invented in Poland, but it was the Mendeleev who devised a modern standard for distilling vodka, so you could say it is a creation of both of our nations Razz
