Keys To A Good Vodka Sauce
It’s not too difficult to prepare a good vodka sauce that goes well with pasta, noodles, smoked salmon, and literally anything you like. The key to good vodka sauce includes few things. These are:
- You should use a good quality vodka
- You should have tomato puree ready
- Whipped cream forms another important part that adds great color to the sauce and makes its consistency just right
- Mixed herbs of your choice
Once you have at least these available with you, making the best vodka sauce is just as easy as making a vodka cocktail of your own.

You can either choose to remove the pan from over the heat when pouring vodka into the mixture or stir continuously while pouring it so that it quickly gets mixed with the rest of the ingredients.
