They did use a couple different wire paper rests, but nothing quite like this.
MMM, Polish potato vodka. Check around the bottom shelf of your local grocery store - there's a brand called Luksusowa that is widely imported in the US, but for some reason I can't fathom is marketed as a "cheap" vodka (about $14/750ml). Toss it in the freezer and it'll beat any of the expensive grain vodkas for taste and smoothness. (:
I'm going to have to try all sorts of vodkas now… I'll remember your recommendation. It'll take me a while to move on from one to the other though. XD
The thing with vodka (Ted's right - keep it in the freezer) is you can drink as much as you like but never get a hangover.
So the beets weren't pickled, but you were! Groma... something?
