It’s so much fun when you don’t expect it – a Sunday afternoon drink. Champagne none the less.
Yesterday, two fun people came over with a bottle of bubbly to celebrate, well, nothing at all. Or maybe the occasion was that ‘twas the day after Saturday and a whole lunch, six flutes, a siesta and movie away from Monday.
Either way, we didn’t care. We popped the cork and bought out the flutes, a surge of bubbles tickling the afternoon into laughter. Those happy hours giggled up many things, but just one that’s of use to you dear reader – whisky flavoured cheese. Bought from Nature’s Basket and placed on the table, the hunk of cheese looked remarkably similar to Cooper’s chocolate fudge. Or walnut cake, someone pointed out. But really, it combines two of a lot of people’s favourite food and drink. Cheese marinated in whisky...need I say more? Try it. It goes great with chilled champagne or white wine on a March Mumbai afternoon.
Available at Nature’s Basket outlets across the city, Rs 250 for 100 gms.
