Taking inspiration from the classic Vietnamese beef soup, mixologists at the Emmanuelle bar in Philadelphia have created a pho cocktail. Named the 'Worthy F*cking Adversary,' the drink was concocted to taste just like the delicious soup, complete with an alcoholic twist.
The drink is made of the same ingredients that make up the broth of pho, along with gin or vodka. Emmanuelle's bartenders added spices such as cinnamon and star anise cloves to the adventurous cocktail. In addition, fresh ginger, onions and lime juice augment the drink. To complete the authenticity of the drink, the bartenders added bean sprouts and the famous sriracha hot sauce as garnish.
The pho cocktail doesn't come as a surprise, since the dynamic mixologists have a impressive portfolio of quirky cocktails.
