Beverage: Nuoc cu nang/Chesnut drink
Ingredients: Water, chesnut, sugar
Appearance: One part particle physics laboratory, two parts peasouper fog a la London in the time of ace crime buster Sherlock Holmes. The motionless chesnut particles bring to mind images of an agitated, yet spookily calm millpond.
Aroma: Naked, of earth, yet tropical, clean and spiritual. Yes, this drink’s got religion.
Taste: Sacharine sweet tree roots interwoven with those crunchy nut mid-beverage hanging particles. Drop the harsh artificial tasting sugar mouthmine and this tipple is well on the way to a health farm endorsement deal, sourcing a local yogi and teaching learned foragers a thing or two about nature’s bounty.
If this drink were a TV show it would be… The Good Life. The sorta thing Tom and Barbara would rustle up after a hard day’s composting.
