Hit Chicago-based chef and restauranteur Grant Achatz had an interesting weekend dabbling in a bit of molecular mixology.
“Achatz tweeted… that he and [Chef de Tournant] Schoettler were “playing with sensation and texture in a gin and tonic,” with a link to the above video (h/t Grub Street Chicago). “Playing with sensation and texture” seems to be an understatement. The gin and tonic Achatz is sampling in the video contains Anchor Junipero gin, yellow chartreuse and “cucumber alginate encapsulation.”
Imagine that, indeed.
