Something for the weekend: A cocktail for grown-up kids
It's not often that a cocktail makes me reminisce about being 10 years old and watching Saturday morning cartoons, but the Sav U'R Cereal is not your ordinary mixed drink. The primary ingredient in this fall-flavored beverage -- the latest creation from PS 7's inventive mixologist Gina Chersevani -- is "cereal milk."
Remember when you were little and you'd finish a bowl of Lucky Charms or Trix and you couldn't wait to slurp down the leftover milk in the bottom of the bowl? That's what this adult beverage tastes like, but it's enhanced with Old Overholt rye bourbon and a bit of St. Elizabeth Allspice Dram. My favorite part may be the garnish: two pieces of Cap'n Crunch and a Crunch Berry.
To create the cereal milk, Chersevani boils Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries in milk, then cools the liquid down to strain and store it. Why Crunch Berries? There's something about the combination of the fruity berries, the sweetness of the rye and the allspice. I drank one. I wanted more. And I couldn't help wondering what a version made with Lucky Charms would taste like.
You'll find Sav U'R Cereal on PS 7's recently updated cocktail menu for $12.
Side note: Since Cap'n Crunch's Crunch Berries was named the least healthy cereal for kids by Yale's Rudd Center, I'm going to balance that by highly recommending PS 7's newest 100 Calorie Cocktail: A delectable mix of Bluecoat Gin, coconut water, red Thai chillies, lime juice and mint.
