Mushroom Cocktails are Officially a Thing in Dallas

The truffle Pig Cocktail

(Eater.com)

From Eater.com comes an odd little story about how Mushroom Cocktails are Officially a Thing in Dallas.

To make the cocktail, called a Truffle Pig, Festa combines DeLeon tequila with lemon juice, a honey simple syrup infused with chanterelle mushrooms that have been powdered with liquid nitrogen, and seared and raw maitake mushrooms. The finishing touch — a huge shiitake garnish — drives home the cocktail’s intense, earthy flavors.

I think I’d go for the rum infused with candy-caps, myself.  Something new to try when the fad reaches Scottsdale… But I still think the best combination of alcohol with mushrooms is a good Cabernet to accompany ribeye steak with fresh porcinis…
