Urban Gangster Cocktails

The Glut Life Gives Readers Details on Making 'Trap Champagne'

— April 20, 2013 — Lifestyle
Some of the best food and drink pairings in the world gain their notoriety by making unusual combinations of the highest and lowest qualities of ingredients, and this alcohol-infused gangster cocktail called 'Trap Champagne' is a great example of one of these unusual, but tasty mixtures.

Concocted by a food blog called the Glut Life, this Trap Champagne cocktail combines bizarre ingredients in order to create a sinfully sweet alcohol-infused beverage. By mixing a 1/2 cup of water, sugar and 3/4 of cherry Kool-Aid with Dom Perignon, this gangster certified beverage creates an unexpected display of flavors that you would probably never taste together.

The term Trap refers to the lifestyle of an urban gangster and is now commonly used as slang to describe all sorts of things. However, adding subtle but important touches to this alcohol-infused hood drink like dicing and rolling Kosher pickles as a final garnish makes this Trap Champagne far from trashy.
