The other night, for Joanne’s party, I cooked up some tapioca pearls I had lying around the cupboard. The boring half I made into tapioca pudding, which was still quite tasty. The exciting half I made into bubble tea bubbles, because that’s really why I’d bought the tapioca to begin with.
Then I had a great idea, I’m going to a party with bubble tea balls, why not mix them into cocktails instead of tea? Thus was born the “Bubbletini” and the “Bubble G and T” (or should it be “G and Bubble T”?). Just remember, when these are all the rage next year, you heard it here first. Unless they’re already all the rage, in which case, I’ll retire to my study to await my next flash of recycled inspiration.
