As the World of Zing makes itself known as a group of the UK's finest flavour experts, it's not surprising that this collective would put together an unusual cocktail tasting.

For the purposes of sampling, alcohol is often matched up with chocolate or cheese for a better understanding of its unique flavor profile. A new cocktail program from the World of Zing now introduces mixed drinks paired with a flavored Sorbetto gelato at the Black Vanilla Gelateria in London. One highly unusual pairing on the menu at this gelateria is a Persian Lime & Nori Seaweed Margarita with Ocho Tequila, served with Kiwi Sorbetto—this is a good indication of other unusual finds at the tasting.

Moving beyond the desire to consume exotic food and drink separately, consumers are seeking unusual fusions that explore the meeting place between bold, unconventional flavors.
