Last week we shared five recipes from Valley bartenders based on their interpretation of a cocktail inspired by the Arizona weather sensation: the haboob.
Of course we thought it was a great idea and as it turns out, so did another Phoenix-area news outlet. Just one day later, myFOX Phoenix headed out to a few of the same locales to feature our New Times haboob-stars and their dust-and-stormy drinks.
Check out the video after the jump.
In a "Look, Ma! We're on TV," kind of moment, New Times and Chow Bella were pleasantly surprised to see our post turned into a video package for the 6 p.m. news (judging by the time stamp in the video clip).
Who knows, maybe this haboob drink thing will really take off. The bartenders told FOX the drinks aren't on their menus yet, but were open to the idea in the future. So next time you find yourself in the mood for something new maybe go for the up-and-coming Arizona classic, the
Antiguan Fig Haboob.
We also found this post on examiner.com from last summer about - you guessed it, dust storm cocktails. Turns out, there really is nothing new under the sun.
