Chicharron Strips and Ginger Beer

Labels: , , , ,

vinegar and sea salt chicharron strips + ginger beer = perfect merienda




I love these chicharron strips already flavored with vinegar and sea salt; there's no need to dip in vinegar which could get messy. The Gosling's ginger beer, not fermented and non-alcoholic btw, which I think tastes  like carbonated salabat has a very strong ginger flavor and goes well with the yummy chicharron.

If ginger beer is not available in your area, you can make your own carbonated salabat. Prepare sweet salabat either from fresh ginger or salabat mix; let cool. Fill half a glass with ice, pour cooled salabat, club soda/seltzer water, a squirt of lemon, lime, or calamansi juice, stir once, and enjoy. Or if preferred, you can also add a splash of rum, vodka, lambanog, or gin bulag.:))

Gizelle, I buy the chicharron from the Asian grocery store. Mahirap yata iluto, deep-fried kasi.:)

Maiylah, when I bought the 6-pack ginger beer from the alcohol provider store I thought it had alcohol, wala pala, which was what I preferred anyway.:)

How can you go wrong with chicharron. I like vinegar, garlic, and chili peppers (labuyo) as the dipping sauce. Now, on your last sentence, splash of what? You mean fill the glass with rum, vodka, or lambanog then add a splash of calamansi? haha!
