Borscht and rye bread.

Or thin slivers of raw garlic dropped straight in the vodka.

Best way to find out would be to chew up random items of food, spit them into a bowl of vodka and stomach acid, then see how long you can hold the mixture in your mouth.

Whichever is in your mouth the longest wins.

In Russia theya alternate between eating snacks (закуски, zakuski) and taking shots. The snacks usually involve cheese and bread at the very least, but you might see meat, smoked fish, fruit, pickles, and vegetables as well. It's a much more elaborate drinking routine than what you'll generally see in North America and Western Europe, but everyone does it there, and in truth, it's much more enjoyable to get wasted with a steady supply of real food in front of you. :thumbsup:

In any case, the snacks are simply there so that they don't get drunk on an empty stomach. Vodka is for getting drunk, and since it's flavorless it really serves no gastronomic purpose other than being a post-meal digestif in small amounts. If you're looking for something to compliment a meal, stick to wine.

My Russian friends used to chase a shot of vodka by taking a bite of a dill pickle.

Pickles, black bread, picked onions, more vodka.

Get a platter, lots of small things, drink vodka as cold as you can get it. The freezer is your friend.

When drinking with a few friends we'll sometimes have garlic sausage, dill pickles, cheese, and crackers. Goes together quite nicely.

Any fruit. Fruit salad, crackers, cheese, etc. One time I made squirt soda/vodka/lime sherbet floats for St. Patty's Day. Everyone loved them! Salt and vinegar chips seem like they'd be good with vodka too. I'm thinking anything salty or citrus-y.

pickled herring!
dill pickles...
boiled or baked potatos!

To understand what to eat while drinking vodka, you must understand why vodka is drunk in the first place. Poor russian families, vodka is cheap and easy to make, and it does the job of helping them forget their woes very well. Cheap but hearty and easily accessible food includes potatoes, breads, etc. Whatever is readily accessible for them. And funnily enough, vodka is derived from potatoes.

So what kind of vodka you drink? I drink stolichnaya b/c its the only non-gay vodka that my liquor store sells.

Not quite.

Vodka also activates your taste buds, meaning that the food you eat directly afterwards is much more tasty and enjoyable.

Which makes the normally bland and boring foods that russians usually only have access to taste that much more appetizing

GOD BLESS VODKA :p

Well, Russians historically didn't get much meat in their diet - but I've got to say, Russian women sure do know where it's at when it comes to cooking. Their foods are delicious.

Also, you pretty much always get buffet-type dinners. Which makes dinners so much nicer.

Valium, Percocet, Vicodin, Xanax, basically if it comes in a pill form and fucks you up even more, it goes best with vodka.

Sorbet' goes well with vodka, light and tasty. I recommend flavors like raspberry, watermelon, orange... you can also make your own sorbet flavors with a little Vodka already in it.

Last summer when we were having a BBQ we added some vodka.

It kinda flame grilled it and tasted pretty interesting.

Sausages and burgers and steaks I guess then.

I recall a couple years back using the wok out on the side burner on my grill. Had the mother smoking before I added the broccoli to go with the salmon that I had on the main grill, and did a vodka finish on it. Tasted good, but during the flambe I damn near burnt my eyebrows off. The neighbors enjoyed the pyro show, though.

A couple shots of vodka to finish the veggies, and the rest bottle for later. It seemed to work well together.
