I like Hangar One for vodka.
Try this: 2 parts vodka/gin of choice, 1 part St. Germaine, lime wedge/splash of lime juice, (tonic optional)
^ commonly known as a French Gimlet, would consider swapping lime for cucumber if using certain more floral gins such as Hendricks
I do this in varying proportions mixed with champagne; delicious (vodka)
my go-to is ketel 1, but everyone has their favorites. I always enjoy sampling small-batch offerings. Ketel or grey goose are easy to have on hand, and I think that both make a good drink.
If you're going gin, try a "chunnel" : 2.5 measures floral gin, .5 elderflower (adjust for sweetness - I think the usual recipe calls for 2:1), 3/4 meyer lemon juice (again, adjust as desired). One of my favorite gin cocktails.
I had to bolster the last of my sipsmith's vodka martini with smirnoff tonight; it was a horrible experience.
