Thanks to the folks at INSIDER, we now know that if we go to Texas, we can tuck into a ramen cocktail & it sounds like the journey would so be worth it…
Alcoholic versions of our favourite foods is not exactly a new concept. After all, we’ve been lusting after boozy ice cream and adult cereal bowls for years now. But alcoholic ramen takes the craft cocktail concept to a whole new level.
The Thai Bowl is served at Daiquiri Time Out, an innovative cocktail bar in Texas. While this may look like a bowl of warm curry ramen, it’s actually a refreshing cocktail made with coconut water “glass noodles” and dark rum. But don’t worry, you can still pretend you’re eating real ramen: The boozy “dish” is served in a class ramen bowl with chopsticks.
So how do they do it?
“The ‘noodles’ are hand-cut and made from fresh coconut water and Agar Agar, which is a seaweed-based gelling agent,” Brad Stringer, co-owner of Daiquiri Time Out told INSIDER in an email. “The ‘broth’ is a blend of Plantation Original Dark rum, turmeric-ginger syrup, lime cordial, coconut cream, and coconut milk (for texture).”
The resulting mix looks almost exactly like yellow curry broth filled with slurpable noodles, but when it hits you, the dark rum can pack quite a punch.
Try one out yourself at DTO on Market Street in Galveston, Texas.
