Oyster Infused Vodka?

Oh, yes! As reported in Food & Wine magazine, a distillery in Rhode Island is now making oyster vodka—the first in the world. Named Ostreida, the spirit is made by distilling local oysters along with a neutral corn-based spirit.

As a pairing, vodka and caviar pairing go back thousands of years.
