Julien...Canned?! Uggg! I remember that stuff. Used to hold it in my cheeks in the battle of wills with my mother. No, no fresh for me--raw, steamed, or my personal favorite...creamed with pepper or as Saag (Indian spinach).
What is "Pertsovka"? Never heard of it, but if it's a vodka I'd love to try it.
That's what motivated my experiments in pepper vodka. I was surprised at how good peppercorn-infused vodka could be, especially with a mix of black, white, and pink peppercorns. (Green peppercorns produced a really sharply flavored vodka that was virturally undrinkable in martinis but, oddly enough, made the best bloody marys ever.) I also played with chipotles, anchos, and arboles; generally, I found that doing single-chile batches and blending the results made for the best chile-infused vodka.
You should try Nemiroff. It's wonderful with lemonade (homemade, of course).
