Really works well. Adds a bit of acidity.
Thank you

I enjoy vodka but what other accompaniments are you referring to?

Also, how do I choose a decent caviar without breaking the bank?

Blini (or toast points), minced shallot of red onion, chopped hard-boiled egg, creme fraiche or sour cream. (and the icy cold vodka).

There are some farmed, American roes, like paddlefish, that are similar. None are particularly cheap, but not like the Russian or Iranian stuff.

Caviar is probably something I will never try. Such a high price for fish eggs! I just don't feel the need I guess.

I love caviar, but I do wait for wine tasting parties and the like to have the occasional nosh.

Sorry, but caviar is just way too salty for me. I'd rather spend that kind of money on lobster and filet mignon.

Same with me and business dinners. I have only bought the Eurasian stuff once. A domestic once also. Then there was the half kilo someone gave me.....
