Beau Rivage Resort & Casino has launched a signature line of liquid nitrogen cocktails available only at BR Prime. Liquid Nitrogen, a cryogenic fluid with a temperature of -320 F, freezes alcohol and generates powerful libations. The main ingredient in each drink has been selected from a list of cocktails with the most popular liquors and flavors. Popsicles are used to maintain the libation’s cold temperature and taste. Smoke tops off each drink’s unique presentation.
The cool cocktails are the brainchild of Beau Rivage Director of Food & Beverage Stephane Hainaut.”I thought of using liquid Nitrogen while working with a chef who was very involved in molecular cuisine,” said Hainaut. “He shared with me that liquid nitrogen was the only ingredient he knew that could actually freeze alcohol. I thought it would be great to make a cocktail without using ice cubes.”
BR Prime offers five liquid nitrogen cocktails, priced from $17-$21:
