I like vodka, you can mix it with anything, it turns the volume down a little, and from a distance - it looks like water!  Like lots of things, there are the bargain versions of vodka (like my favorite brand - Old Trusty Jake's "Vodka" and Paint Remover) and expensive versions (like Grey Goose).  Above that, there is another level.  Imagine, if you will, a liquor so decadent and intoxicating that bottle in which it resides is handcrafted from gold and silver topped with a diamond encrusted cap.  A single bottle of the Russo-Baltique vodka (made to commemorate the centenary of a Russian luxury car company's factory) will set you back $1.3 million!

The BBC is reporting that the highly-coveted bottle of ultra-hooch was on loan to Danish club owner Brian Ingberg, and was sitting comfortably in his collection of rare and unique liquors when the unthinkable happened.  The famous bottle, which had been featured in an episode of House of Cards, was stolen earlier this week.  Security camera footage showed a thief swiping the bottle, but experts are unsure if he broke in or had a key.
