This drink is intended to evoke the experience of being stuck in a tiny hut in the far-eastern Russian tundra, with nothing to live on except vodka and cured fish. So many happy memories... Salmon and vodka go together as naturally as bread and butter (indeed, they are seen by some people as suitable dietary replacements for bread and butter), so why not combine their flavours in a single glass?
The result is a bracing, but delicious vodka shot with wonderful aftertaste of salty fish. Unusual, but guaranteed to leave you wanting more.
is best served with pickles, bread and cream cheese.
100g smoked salmon
2 tbsp dill weed
Sea salt and black pepper
Pickles, sourdough bread, cream cheese
