Just a quick entry here on a drink I recently enjoyed over at Percy Street Barbeque.
It’s called the Hillbilly Gatorade - Miller High Life, pickle juice, and barbeque sauce. Generally, if I see something on a menu that looks interesting, I have trouble not ordering it. Sometimes this works out, sometimes it doesn’t.
This drink was really, really good. It was kind of like drinking a burger and beer combo, since the pickle juice and barbeque sauce give you the “burger” taste really strongly - picture the flavor sensation, leaving the burger texture aside, naturally. Formulating the drink so that it recalls something else (in this case, a burger) is clever, and the salty / sweet / smoky combo works really well.
Something to keep in mind for those times when I order a drink and it doesn’t work out. Cranberry-ginger cooler at Pod, I’m looking at you.
