Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Parson's Special is a delightful nod to those seeking a burst of citrus without the buzz, blending the zesty freshness of orange juice with a whisper of grenadine for a subtle sweet contrast. The addition of egg white introduces a creamy texture, giving this non-alcoholic cocktail a sophisticated body that dances between silky and sprightly with each sip.

FAQ's

NON_ALCOHOLIC_VARIATIONS

What makes Parson’s Special a non-alcoholic cocktail?

The Parson’s Special is considered a non-alcoholic cocktail because it does not contain any alcohol in its list of ingredients. The ingredients include orange juice, grenadine, and egg white, all of which are non-alcoholic, making it suitable for those who prefer or need to avoid alcohol.

FAQ

Why is an egg white used in the Parson’s Special cocktail?

Egg white is used in the Parson’s Special cocktail to create a smooth, silky texture and to add a layer of froth on top of the drink. When shaken vigorously, the egg white emulsifies, creating a creamy appearance and a rich mouthfeel that enhances the overall drinking experience without altering the flavor.

CUSTOMIZATION_IDEAS

Can the Parson’s Special be customized for vegans?

Yes, the Parson’s Special can be easily customized for vegans by substituting the egg white with a vegan alternative. Aquafaba, the liquid from canned chickpeas, is a popular choice as it closely mimics the properties of egg whites in creating a similar frothy texture when shaken.

FAQ

Is the Parson’s Special suitable for children?

Yes, the Parson’s Special is suitable for children since it is a non-alcoholic cocktail. The ingredients are all child-friendly, and it can be an enjoyable and fancy option for kids during special occasions or family gatherings.

FAQ

How should the Grenadine be added to the Parson’s Special for the best presentation?

For the best presentation, the Grenadine should be added slowly over the back of a spoon or drizzled gently after the other ingredients have been mixed and poured into the glass. This method allows the Grenadine to sink and then slowly rise, creating a beautiful gradient effect often referred to as a 'sunset' in the glass.
