People have long considered black caviar a sign of luxury and material well-being. This healthy and nutritious product with a special taste is an excellent snack and decoration for any holiday table. It was served on a caviar serving set and paired with various alcoholic drinks for a vibrant gastronomic experience. But you should understand what is best to combine the delicacy to maximize its taste.
You should select drinks carefully if you have black caviar among other snacks on your table. But first, read this article. It will help you decide on alcohol and pleasantly surprise your guests.
Champagne with Caviar
They are a perfect gastronomic couple. Its silky salty taste is organically combined with the acidity of champagne and the play of bubbles. Of course, an exquisite delicacy is best combined with the best brands of champagne – Dom Perignon, Louis Roederer Cristal, and Veuve Clicquot Brut. However, experts recommend opting for dry drinks.
For example, Blanc de Blanc, exclusively made from white Chardonnay grapes, gives fruity notes and pairs well with the taste of a black delicacy. Cool, pour into the most beautiful glasses, and enjoy!
If you are a brut fan, sugar will not hurt to recognize the subtle shades of caviar taste and get a true impression of your favorite treat. A little game, a small sip of a delicious drink, and your feast was a success!
Wine and Caviar
Wines can also be a good match. However, the rule does not work here: elite wine goes with the most expensive caviar. Often a fish delicacy simplifies the taste of the best wine. At the same time, a combination with some budget alcoholic drinks can turn into a real gastronomic masterpiece. But there are proven caviar and wine options.
Spanish dry white wine made from Viura grapes with notes of grapefruit and lime perfectly set off the tones of cashew nuts and bitterness of citrus fruits, noticeable in stellate sturgeon caviar. But only a true connoisseur can recognize them.
Dry white wine made from pinot noir and caviar grapes complements each other perfectly. The very best berries from the vineyards of France turn into a drink with bright citrus notes, which will be the perfect gastronomic pair for an exquisite delicacy with a savory, salty taste.
Vodka with Caviar
True connoisseurs of the universally recognized delicacy prefer vodka from a frozen glass to wine and champagne. There are even separate shows during which the bartenders use stacks of ice entirely. The world’s preeminent vodka brands are valued for their aroma and clean profile, which is the best way to bring out the flavor of caviar. High-quality vodka in a chilled state becomes slightly viscous and sets off graininess in the best way. Caviar and vodka pairing is a classic. The latter sets off the taste, making it stronger and more expressive. Vodka should be cooled for at least four hours, and it is better to leave it in the freezer overnight so that it becomes thick, like syrup.
The softest premium quality vodka, Medoff, got its unsurpassed taste under the influence of microparticles of honey, which is considered the best natural filter. It is another best drink with caviar you can imagine.
Another globally recognized brand is Absolut. It can be lemon, raspberry, pear, or spicy, as well as grainy. But in combination, it is better to select a pure product, without any additives.
Black caviar should not be eaten, but savored, enjoyed, and experienced pleasure. And experts advise to adhering to three basic rules:
- the product should be as cold as possible, the same applies to accompanying drinks;
- you can touch the black delicacy with anything, but not with metal, the exception is a golden spoon;
- acid and salt together are unacceptable, it spoils the taste and overall impression of the delicacy.
Last but not least, taste the fish delicacy in pleasant company to share your emotions from true gastronomic pleasure. And fully enjoy it and its aftertaste.
