The Origin of SMIRNOFF

While vodka can trace its heritage back to 19th century Russia, SMIRNOFF revolutionized the cocktail in the U.S. beginning in 1941 with the creation of the Moscow Mule. SMIRNOFF later went on to popularize familiar cocktails such as the Bloody Mary, Screwdriver, and Vodka Martini – shaken, not stirred of course.
