Appropriately titled Prologue, the new set of teas is inspired by literary classics.
Thai Tea Martini - Drink of the Week
Patrons exploring the menu at White Orchids Thai Cuisine in the Promenade Shops at Saucon Valley are probably tempted to pair their dish with some Thai Tea.
But why stop there? How about a Thai Tea Martini?
“With Thai Tea, people are familiar with that from our regular menu, so it opens it up and segues into trying a cocktail with it,” says Byron Coons, the Upper Saucon Township restaurant’s bar manager.
The drink combines White Orchids’ triple-brewed dark tea with Malibu coconut rum and Chila ’Orchata cinnamon cream rum.
“All three working together creates a fall-oriented, dessert-style martini,” says Coons, who lives in Bethlehem and constructs the eatery’s drink menu.
The creamy, subtly sweet concoction is an appropriate pairing to sooth the heat of spicy dishes, which aren’t in short supply at White Orchids.
Shake together with ice and pour into a cinnamon-rimmed martini glass.
