A cocktail in verse by Mixologist Rashed Shishir. Read it to yourself and then read it out loud! Enjoy!!!
Acid is a simple complex
from palette to palate.
Calamansi wears a perfume
and bites with fume.
Yuzu refreshes and sparkles
but like starburst… it tingles.
Kumquat is as sharp as grapefruit,
and mandarin mixes well with a brut.
But of all the acids citric
(including all that is common),
Nothing is versatile as Kaffir!
It yields the best phenolic properties.
Poly phenols give fruit the umami,
the palate pH detects the origami.
The bass of an organic Acid is a fractal
when mixed with a higher Base potential.
The hues may or may not be
as sweet as they seem to appear.
In a summer citrus tale,
it is the scent of the resultant salt
that defines the cocktail.
Please shake well.
