They have a contraption called a Randall built into their bar that allows them to stuff it full of hops, coffee, chocolate, or whatever else, and then run a beer through it into your glass.” I have got to see that.

    For a similarly non-fluid-filled sphere for homemade caviar, I’m wondering if cooking the large tapioca pearls (intended for bubble tea) in a strongly flavored liquid would do the trick. Different texture, but vegan? (and easy, although you wouldn’t have the fun of the actual drip-spherification process, which is probably half the point)

    My favorite way to grill boneless skinless chicken breasts is to grill boneless skinless chicken thighs instead. They have more flavor and are way more forgiving on the grill than white meat. Bonus: I’ve seen many a “white meat only” person convert to the joys of thighs by trying them this way.

    kc – Good question, I have not played with the boba tea pearls in a long while. Though I’m thrilled you can find the straws available more and more places these days.

    Ellen – I have tried, many times, to use chicken thighs instead but find I just don’t like the flavor. My husband like dark meat so when we split a half chicken it works out nicely though.

    We love Pine Box, but didn’t know about that cool tap! We’ll have to try something from it next time.

    The straws are now available?! That’s great!

    Unrelated to actual boba/bubble tea usage, the straws are the best cheap cake-tier supports ever (to keep the weight of upper tiers from crushing lower tiers). They’re more stable than regular skinny straws, easy to cut to the right height, food safe, and easy to spot while slicing.
