Welcome back in our corner of Drinks Tube!
Yes, yes, yes! *Cheering.* Of Course, of course. Drinks Tube eh? Very easy. Have you been to
Mexico Jamie? Er no, i’d love to. Oh perfect, neither have Jeremy and Amanda so this drink
will bring you to Mexico already. Nice. The cocktail is called the Michelada. Michelada.
It’s 100% based beer cocktail, wow! So very in fashion, low in AVB because mainly it’s
beer, savory. Beer cocktails are a big thing right now? Exactly, within food matching.
When you cook at home, you have a nice BBQ in the middle of the afternoon when it’s very
hot. A beer cocktail is the best thing you can have ever. Step number one we need a beer
glass, so any kind of glass and a fresh lime, what I do, I split in half the lime and the
first thing, I rub the rim of the glass with the lime. Rub that rim. Yes. Here I have some
Salt, which I have with my favorite herbs which is thyme. Nice flakes yes. And you see
I put some fresh thyme but you favourite herbs. It’s amazing, flavoured salt is such a joyful,
joyful thing. You choose the spice you like better or the herbs. I simple do a nice rim
like this, you see. Imagine when you approach the glass, these flakes of salt turn on all
your palette with the flavour, it’s amazing. Taste buds. Taste buds, taste buds, thanks
so much. No problem. Next step with the same lime, I put a little bit of drops in it. So
like quarter of a lime. Yes, pinch of salt. Ooo. Pinch of pepper. Ooo. Your favourite
dressing sauce. Worcestershire sauce. We either say wor-chesters and it’s always wrong. I
know… I know, DDJ BBQ… you see most Americans say wusstershire and he has now been infiltrated
by the Brits how now says Worcestershire. It’s intentional because everybody pronounces
it in a different way. Then we have some spice sauce as well. Tabasco. Tabasco, everybody
has a couple of drops to your palette. And now, a little bit of Tequila. Now if you guys,
never been to Mexico. The best way to really experience and be in Mexico right now is not
to sip the Tequila but actually, but give me your hands. Exactly, ladies first. One
drop of Tequila for you, one drop for you and Jamie. All you can do now is to rub it
together with your hands. Your hands becomes colder and it evaporates all the alcohol all
you can smell now is the agave. It’s amazing. It’s the plant that is used to distill this
lovely spirit, my favourite. Agave, that’s a cactus, a cacti. It belongs to the same
family. You know that in Greek Agave means stunning, beautiful, like you. Because they
are so beautiful. Yes, like you. So you could also be called agave. But they are very healthy
a cactus. Indeed, indeed and obviously we put 25 ml not too much of tequila. So this
is subtle. Yes subtle. Nice and subtle. Because the main ingredient as I said is beer. Now
I choose a nice Mexican beer. Modelo Especial. Light fragrant, thank you very much. We gonna
put some ice until the top and we’re gonna top it up with our beer. Have you seen some
place that serve beer with a slice of lime? Yes. We are doing the same, the lime is inside
instead of here. So this about, you only use such a subtle amount of tequila, that you
are just propping up the beer and then the spice and lime just wakes up your taste buds.
And the most beautiful thing is you can use the spice you like there is no rule. It’s
within our hearts, especially if you like tequila. He just touched me. Ok that’s nice.
So enjoy the Michelada, i’ve got Michelada for everybody today and of course welcome
again to London. Thank you.
