Ribs and rum cocktails
Sweet sticky ribs aren’t the easiest thing to pair with wine so why not look elsewhere? At cocktails, for example?
The thought was put in my mind by a preview of my son Will’s new restaurant Foxlow Soho (apologies for gratuitous plug) when we ordered a range of dishes and a couple of cocktails to try. The one I took to most was an ‘Old Cuban’ which was based on rum, fresh mint, lime and champagne which managed to be sweet and refreshing at the same time.
It pretty well sailed through everything we had on the table which included pea guacamole, fried chicken and five pepper squid but was particularly good with the rare breed spare ribs with green slaw, a substantial starter you could easily eat as a main (though he probably won’t thank me for saying that!). Order loads of other stuff too, won’t you or you’ll get me into trouble 😉
