Caprese Martini from “Neo Yokio”
It’s a gross as you think it’s going to be. I had to see what it would taste like! Click over to see the video for my full reaction. Recipe is posted below. Make with caution- in my experience this is a highly divisive drink. You either love it or hate it. I tested it on many of my friends- it seems like the people who liked it enjoyed savory things more than sweet things. If you don’t like savory drinks, this might not be for you.
However, it’s 100% worth it for the memes. I brought the leftovers to a friend’s wedding, and it really spiced up the festivities and made it super classy. It helped that he was wearing a midnight blue suit to his own wedding. And, you guessed it- the suit was *sparklin*.
