What is the boiling point of vodka?
I have found the boiling point of ethanol, ~173 (degrees) F.
However, I am unable to find the boiling point of vodka. I found some information on it, but I do not trust the source.

Vodka is a solution of water and ethanol.
A mixture of both liquids will start boiling close to the boiling point of ethanol (otherwise distillation wouldn't work).
The lowest boiling temperature is a mixture of:
which boils at 78.2 °C.
Read more about this effect at: Azeotrope There is also a picture of a phase diagram there.
Wait, vodka is quoted at 40% ethanol V/V (so mole fraction about 1/5) and not azeotropic! It should be about 83 °C.
