Fancy some boozy fries?
We’ve all heard of booze-infused chocolate and cakes, and of course, any good risotto includes a good glug of white wine, but we’ve never before encountered ketchup or mayonnaise that can get you drunk. Until now! [Photos: celebratewhatyoueat.com]
The minds behind Mossel & Gin seafood restaurant in Amsterdam have been serving their fish and chips with a side of gin-infused mayo for a few years now, but recently they’ve started selling their boozy sauces as condiments to enjoy at home, and we’re all for it!
It’s not just boring old mayo, either. The company uses Zaanse mayonnaise, a firm favourite in the Netherlands, which includes a delicious mix of spices. Combined with gin, the mayo has a 2% alcohol content.
So, it’s not really going to have you falling all over the place after you’ve eaten it, but it does have a subtle, alcoholic taste that cuts through the creamy mayo deliciously. If ketchup is more your thing then don’t worry, they’ve infused that with gin too, and it’s equally as delicious!
In the UK, you can pick up a tube of Gin Chup and Gin Mayo from the likes of Beyond Living, The Food Market, Anthropologie, Fenwick, The Mistley Kitchen. Will you be trying it?
