Fizzy, alcohol-free drinks
Using fresh fruits and herbs, spices, and handcrafted ferments and syrups, Benny Briga offers an enticing assortment of refreshing drinks at a small shop in Tel Aviv’s Levinsky Market.
Flavoring his concoctions with ingredients as varied as pears, persimmons, or peaches, kefir, kombuchas or pistachios, Briga offers in Gazoz a strong mix of techniques and recipes for creating all sorts of intriguing libations. Visually attractive as well as complexly flavored, his ideas offer plenty of inspiration for everything from an after-work diversion to new signature drinks for a high-end bar program looking to expand its selection of alchohol-free choices.
Cherry, hibiscus, and lime with fermented black peppercorn syrup. Cucumber and pear with mint and basil. Fermented dates with fermented papaya and licorice root. Decidedly not the same old stuff.
