Andy Ricker's wildly popular Pok Pok in Portland, Oregon, is known for its chicken wings but also its drinking vinegars. Here's what our own Adam Lindsley had to say about them:
Most people initially balk at the prospect of quaffing anything with the word "vinegar" in the name. And to be fair, some of these beverages do have a very vinegary aspect to them, though it is never overpowering. The apple variety boasts the strongest vinegar presence of the four, but the acidity is cut somewhat by a pleasant apple-tinged sweetness.. the honey also carries a certain level of that vinegar bite, but again, the measured sugar component makes for a smooth and easy-drinking beverage. The tamarind and pomegranate flavors are much sweeter, with little to no sour punch, making them the ideal choice for the first-timer.
Today we're offering the pomegranate as an introduction to Pok Pok's drinking vinegars. Buy within the next 24 hours and use the Serious Eats code word POM to get 20% off your purchase. Get it now »
