This is a fantastic cocktail recipe that works, gives great yield, and has a beautiful aesthetic. I used Food Network’s recipe for the chive blinis and I was thrilled with the uniform size that a teaspoon will give you. The batter was easy to work with and it went very well with the creme fraiche and the salmon roe. An easy crowd-pleaser. Follow the link below for the recipe.
A note on salmon roe–it is a lot cheaper than black caviar but beware how many eggs you add- they have a great texture and a wonderful burst in your mouth but are also incredibly salty. I found that three was the max and looked the best for a one inch blini.
