Particularly intrigued by Enlightened Wines and Plantation Rum…
Watch out for more savoury cocktails that are finding a toehold. Over the last year the Pickleback has taken most of the blog space and these continue in that direction. Very high flavour, light vinegar chasers or Thai drinking vinegars are on the way.
We’ve seen this coming for a while with people moving beyond sweet and salt, more home pickling etc and Thai and Korean flavours on the up.. palates are more accustomed to it. Lookout for more fermented ingredients and juices, and products labelled as rotten. Sure, this ain’t going to hit Little Chef or Garfunkels for some time, but you cutting edge guru’s might want to feature.

Had a great meal with good friends at Bäco Mercat – started with the hamachi crudo and the blistered okra before diving into their signature bäco, like “the toron” oxtail hash sandwich. Countless delicious small and big plates followed.
Don’t skip on the libations – the chef, Josef Centeno, creates amazing shrubs to be enjoyed in cocktails or sodas. A favorite was the Inca Punch with pisco and chicha morada shrub.
Congratulations to Bäco Mercat for appearing in Bon Appetit’s 2012 list of The Hot Ten – America’s Best New Restaurants.
