Default Why Not?

O.K. why is Smirnoff flavored vodka only 70 proof, when the strait vodka is 80. I usually get black cherry, which is 70 proof. After half a liter it has little affect. Today I got regualr vodka and had the same amount but feel f'd up. I look at the bottle and oh, 80 proof! Why the heck do they change it. I thought I was going nuts getting drunk on only a half Litre of vodka.

first off what the heck are you doing drinking half a litter of vodka on a tuesday night?
2nd the same bottle has to include the same amount of product so they probably have to subtract some of the alcohol in order to add the flavour.

Okay enough is enough, I can see this getting out of hand.

This thread is going nowhere fast, either get it back on track or I will lock it!
