Good point. You want a lashing of salt and vinegar as you sip the last of the drink.

Still, you want to avoid certain flavors. I have some cornichon-sized garlic-dill pickles that are extremely delicious, but I don't think I want garlic or dill in my aperitif.

The piparra, though, was delightful.
