In an age where there is high demand for white rabbit candy blended down into milkshakes, I cannot fault Alleybar's high-effort execution of a quirky idea โ€” a ๐˜€๐—ฎ๐—น๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—น ๐—ฝ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—ฐ๐—ผ๐—ฟ๐—ป ($18) cocktail.
The key ingredient was the Sailor Jerry gin infused with actual popcorn, imparting an agreeable dose of popcorn fragrance to the molasses-rich spirit. Mixing with salted caramel and orange bitters, the resulting concoction was savoury-sweet and slightly buttery in taste, matched with a hit of toasty caramel sweetness. I didn't find it particularly cloying, but I can imagine someone finding it so.
I'd liken it almost to liquid caramel popcorn, in a way which carried its own charm. Admittedly, I'm not sure if I want to drink liquefied popcorn and it didn't really appeal to me. But if you're one of the people who do, you're not alone since this was one of their bestsellers.
