Snails And Spirits, Romania

Love the food-on-the-table scenes! Snails are also popular, not to say a delicacy heh,  here in Dalmatia (my dad is quite a fan but I still haven't dared to try!) but what really caught my attention just now is the drink with a big red pepper dipped in it - until now I just assumed it was wine, but after some investigation I came up with the word pertsivka, which is horilka with, well, peppers. Horilka is Ukrainian national drink (destilled from grain) and this card depicts 'culinary Bucovina', which is the region divided between Ukraine and Romania. In any case, would love to try either, or both :) Thank you Daniela!
