Double Chicken Please continues to subvert the cocktail world by turning our favorite meals into delicious drinks. Case in point, their Japanese Cold Noodle, a pina colada twist that somehow manages to balance the savory notes of sesame oil with the sweetness of fresh pineapple.
Founders GN Chan originally won the 016 Bacardí Legacy Global competition with this drink, when it was known as “Venceremos.” If you’re looking to whip up a cocktail for a crowd that’s sure to turn some heads, give the below recipe a try, but if you’d rather have the talented creators show you the way, head down to New York’s Lower East Side, just make sure to get a reservation ahead of time.
