Kishoku Omakase Gin & Tonic pairing experience – 30/Oct/2017

作為狂熱Gin友,我一向認為Gin+tonic配餐很正。昨晚(30/10/2017)在銅鑼灣耀華街Kishoku楽壽司吃了個Omakase配多款店方精心安排的G&T雞尾酒,不同的香草材料與Gin的香氣芬芳讓魚生和壽司的濃濃鮮味更形吸引,令我回味無窮!

I always love pairing food with Gin & tonic, not just because of I’m a big fan of gin but I believe exploration is the key to fun gastronomy. Last night I had a very enjoyable Gin & tonic pairing dinner at Kishoku. They showed us how different infused herbs and spices in the gin drink can wonderfully pair various dishes in the omakase menu, the fragrance, flavours, low serving temperature & alcohol of gin spiced up the umami taste of many of these courses. What a savoury evening!

Kishoku楽壽司的Gin & Tonic配Omakase有好幾款,Gin base是Beefeater再進行infusion,調酒時加入不同草本,其中這兩款就利用了青瓜和紫蘇葉帶出味道,配合多款前菜和魚生。前者輕爽,後者香氣十足,兩者都令人胃口大開!配搭鮮味主導的菜色,不得了!

All the gins we had are from the brand Beefeater, and infused with carefully selected ingredients. The ones with cucumber & basil leave were particularly outstanding, the former was distinctively refreshing whereas the latter was fragrant. Both of the above were appetizing and pleasing.
