The Daily Drink: Asian Pistou Dumplings in Lime Broth

By Cathy Huyghe

Comments

Dumplings, as Chef Tsai points out, make for great hors d’oeuvres. And what’s great about hors d’oeuvres is that they’re usually just one or two bites, delivering a powerful and concentrated shot of flavor. As a beverage pairing for today’s dumplings, try a few drinks that pack a similar punch one sip at a time. A mango “coolatta,” for example, blends fresh mango, lime juice, coco cream, and rum (if you like), served over ice. A classic lime-ginger drink mixes ginger beer, concentrated lime cordial and mint leaves, and is also served over ice. Or for a twist on the most traditional sipper ever — a martini — try mixing vodka with Canton Ginger liqueur and some lime juice. Powerful and concentrated shots of flavor, indeed.
