Tonight I didn’t get to see my favorite person on TV (Adam Lambert) because President O’Bama was on, but I did get to catch Ted Allen afterwards on Food Detectives as Top Chef winner, Richard Blaise demonstrated how to make cool cocktails using a tank of liquid nitrogen. Man, did you ever think you’d see those 4 names together in one sentence? Anyway, Richard made a Gin & Tonic by making frozen gin ice cubes then filled the glass with tonic water, a frozen Tequila shot, a Mojito sorbet, and a frozen Martini. The ones I’d like to try are the Gin & Tonic and Mojito sorbet. I like my Classic Martinis cold, but I’m hesitant about a very cold & chunky Martini.

Jamie Boudreau from spirits & cocktails.com is one of the world’s leading molecular mixologists. Below is a YouTube video of him making his MEXICAN CLOUD, a Tequila cocktail that includes rhubarb bitters and is topped with egg-white foam that’s flamed (toasted) with an atomized Chartreuse spritz.
