Pretty In Pink

Pretty In Pink’s just the blog post’s title, not the name of the drink.

Just a photo post today:

  
Messed around with Creme de Violette at work, as well as aquafaba — and ar least I got a decent picture out of the experiment.

Aquafaba Beer Cocktail

That’s not beer foam in this picture:

  
I spent a lot of time last week learningn to work with aquafaba — a vegan substitute for egg white!

The stuff works very well, and is easy to find… It’s just the juice left in a can of chickpeas. Weird, I know. But the smell disappears and the liquid emulates the thickness and foaminess of egg white pretty exactly.

I read about the substitute here, I’m an article from Tales Of The Cocktail.

The beer cocktail pictured above mixed SouthernTier’s Porter with Averna, Spiced Chocolate Bitters aquafaba foam and more!

The result was sort of like a milkshake with chocolate and coffee notes.

I’ve sold it to a few different people who were debating between wine or a Cosmo or Vodka/Cran.

It’s a nice little twist on those flavors — with Ramazzotti, Chambord & Cabernet lending extra dimensions to the taste:
