Question: Is it true that you can drink Vodka at work and no one can smell it on you!?
I am not advocating drinking on the job, especially if you are a pilot or a cab driver!.

The question should be, "Can people smell vodka on your breath!?"Www@FoodAQ@Com

No, people can't smell it on your breath if it's Absolut vodka!. Just to be safe, though, chew gum right afterwards for a while!. Sometimes I'm half crocked when I deliver my Sunday sermon and no one can tell because I drink Absolut straight up and then chew some gum!. No one in my congregation has ever complained, and I've been doing it for over ten years!. If they think I'm going to deliver a sermon stone cold sober to those money grubbing, back stabbing neer do wells, they got another thing comin'! LOLWww@FoodAQ@Com

The ultimate drinking reference site, drunkard!.com, has covered the wonderful topic of drinking on the job!.

Yes, vodka is no tell (won't be on your breath)!. But you should still follow the advice it gives and take to regularly dousing yourself in powerful cologne!. Nobody will smell your breath if they are overpowered by Aqua Velva at twenty paces!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

People cannot smell the GOOD vodka;

but they can smell the breath of an alcohol drinker, even such person consumes the best vodka on earth!.


alcohol (= ethanol) in vodka reacts with other things in the mouth (bacteria + food + mucus) and the esophagus/stomach fields a recognizable smell!.

and the next step people would see the "funny face" of the drinker (eyes, sweat)Www@FoodAQ@Com

Generally, I don't think anyone can smell the vodka on your breath from more than a few feet away, but they may notice you acting like you've been drinking vodka!.

also, they may smell whatever you mixed with the vodka so avoid martinis!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Yes, vodka (even good vodka) can be smelled on your breath (even on your body as you excrete also through the pores on your skin)!.
I knew someone that drank vodka (Stoli) every night & I could still smell it on him the next day @ work!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

It's true; vodka is distilled to be odorless!. Lower quality vodkas have a rubbing alcohol smell, but a higher quality vodka won't smell much at all!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

I have heard that but its not true!. You will smell like rubbing alcholish!.

So yes they smell it!.I have tried testing this theory with a friend!. I would not tell her I drank vodka and she knew everytime!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Your lungs excrete approximately 5% of the alcohol you drink!. No matter how much you brush your teeth or marinate in cologne, you're still going to smell like vodka!.Www@FoodAQ@Com
