Ginger Pearl Kombucha

House Pearl Ginger Kombucha

Kombucha is one of those things I just hadn’t gotten around to trying until now.

I figure the beverage is popular enough, that I should at least try it.

I’ve heard good things about House Kombucha, Ginger with Pearl Green Tea sounded like a winner.

Giving it a smell, as expected, Vinegar is the first thing that comes to mind. No surprise from a beverage produced by bacterial fermentation.

But, uh, that is a only very slightly flavored beverage, vinegar or otherwise.

Wow, I can see how selling very slightly vinegar-ish water could be a winning business model!

In other news, Quinoa has recently come under fire. Surprise! Inserting lots of yuppie money to Third World economies results in upheaval!

There’s always Domestic Millet, that is, if you prefer to exploit American farmers.

You and your parrot can have the same treat!

Prairie Oyster Cocktail

Prairie Oyster Cocktail

Prairie Oyster Cocktail.

2 Dashes Vinegar. (Malt Vinegar)
The Yolk of 1 Egg.
1 Teaspoonful Worcestershire Sauce. (From the UK!)
1 Teaspoonful Tomato Catsup. (Chefs Brand Ketchup)
1 Dash of Pepper on Top.

Do not break the Yolk of Egg.

Similar to the Prairie Hen, but only the yolk this time.

While I will recommend you serve this with a shot back, I don’t really get what the big deal is.

It’s just a raw egg, is that so terrifying?

Man (or Woman) up, fer cripes sake!

A little Pepper and Salt.

Do not break the Egg.

Yuppers, that’s a whole egg with some stuff dashed on.

Irish Supplies

In the spirit of making the most authentic Savoy Prairie Hen possible, I traveled out to the Roxy Grocery Store in the sunset where they sell Irish and British goods.  Picked up some UK malt vinegar, some UK Worcestershire, and some Chef Brand Ketchup.

Having armored myself with these bastions of quality, I cracked the egg into the glass, dashed on the ingredients, and sucked it down.

I really do recommend chasing it with a shot of whiskey.  Or maybe tequila.  Disinfectant properties and all.
