Asian Foodie Blogging!
Yes, I do consider myself honored that one of my blogger heroes Mr. kevinEats has even noticed Cake & Heels! Plus, click on the link & read his post, it's so on point.
So where does that leave us? With a little summer-y alcoholic treat to get us through the cold long winter... (I'm a SoCali girl, this 40 degree weather is seriously freezing me out.)
Li hing mui is a salty dried plum, great for healing canker sores, and even better for rimming cocktails. It has a very distinctive sweet, sour, salty & tangy taste that makes your taste buds dance! I started out dipping the rim of my glass in a shallow dish of champagne & then into a plate of the powder before setting it aside.
In a shaker I combined 1 oz of vodka w/ 3 oz of guava juice & mixed. Poured the concoction into the glass & topped with float of bubbly champagne and a garnish of pineapple!
Goes perfectly with a large tray of Hawaiian Poke & chips, sitting poolside with your heat lamp burning up next to you.
