Snakebite (recipe)

Snakebite

It’s been a while since I whipped up a little poison for y’all, and what’s more poisonous than a snakebite? :D OK. I never heard about this concoction before this week and the only reason I even stumbled across it was because I wanted to take part in the Edible Reptile food challenge [1]. But who cares? It tastes great! Especially ice cold! Simply mix one part lager beer and one part apple cider and you’re set. Couldn’t find any apple cider locally, so I substituted it with Cydrax, an originally British beverage that funnily enough has morphed into a uniquely Trinidadian entity.

From the BBC [2]:
Pear-flavoured fizzy drink Peardrax, along with its apple-based counterpart Cydrax, is still made under licence in Trinidad, nearly 20 years after being taken off UK shelves because of falling sales.
.
Despite the fact that pears are not native to the region, Trinidadians and Tobagonians now see the drink as a defining part of the culture of their twin-island republic.
.
One website, TnTisland.com [3], features a “True Trini Test” including a preference for Peardrax or Cydrax over Pepsi or Coca-Cola as a sign that “yuh know yuh is a real Trini”.
.

Try these with yesterday’s Batter-Fried Zucchini [4] or potato chips. Perfect!
