• A cocktail and a bite, all in one

A gin cocktail napkin

Wine snobs love to use words such as “thick” and “chewy” when they describe a wine. Now, some innovative mixologists are making such words literally applicable to spirits-based goodies.

TodayFOOD has a roundup of “5 Cocktails You Can Eat” that includes such unusual items as a cocktail napkin made of gin, nitrogen-poached aperitifs, fashion ice, a gel-covered cocktail, and even those familiar old Jell-O shots.

My favorite is the gin napkin, which came about as a result of an accident at Rogue 24 in Washington, DC, when a bartender was trying to concoct an alcohol foam to place over food and things went awry.

You can get the lowdown on all of these items online.
