Kansas City is full of tastes and tastemakers. With Today’s Special — our new video series with KCPT’s Flatland — we recently had the chance to explore just a few of the drinks and eats that require your full gustatory attention. Over the course of five weeks (this is week two), we’ll take you inside the process behind some amazing bites and sips during your Thursday lunch hour. Watch the video above and then pop by Flatland for the back story.
Tasty cocktail? Check. Historical connection to Kansas City? Check. Two talented folks chatting across the bar about how they create drinks and eats to make you swoon? Check. In order to tell the tale of the Hemingway Daiquiri, we asked Christopher Elbow (the chocolatier considers it his favorite cocktail) to chat with Julep’s Beau Williams about the tropical drink. It’s a conversation you can’t miss.
In past episodes, we dived into the pork tenderloin sliders at The Rieger, Boulevard’s beer backpack at The K and the Z-man at Joe’s Kansas City. We’ll wrap up the series with Oddly Correct’s hop toddy. We hope you enjoy Today’s Special.
