Vodka Food Pairings
1. Vodka and Caviar
Caviar is super chic, low in calories, and can be served plain or on a tiny and adorable piece of toast. Serve up your vodka super chilled with a little bowl of caviar and toasts.
2. Pickles and Vodka
I mean, if you have pickles skewered in your Bloody Mary, are you that surprised that they go well with an ice cold shot of vodka? The sour and salty notes pair well with super smooth Grey Goose vodka—just make sure they’re super cold, like your heart, or else you’ll get a strange aftertaste. If you DO decide to pair vodka with pickles, however, be aware that there is a 100% chance you will feel like Snooki.
3. Smoked Salmon
If you’re one of those people you’ve been eating lox on your bagels with shmear every morning for years. What a fabulous surprise to know that a shot of vodka would be a perfect pairing with your breakfast of champions.
As we’ve learned from Queen Anna Wintour, steak is betchy AND not horrible for you (hello—no carbs and ALL the protein). Lucky for us, it also pairs perfectly with ice cold Grey Goose vodka. So grab an 8 oz., sear it, and serve rare for a dinner, lunch, or snack all of your man friends will be proud of.
5. Ricotta, Goat Cheese, or Dill Cheeses
Cheeses do pair well with vodka. So, nibble your cheese and take your shot for an afternoon snack, but don’t overdo it.
