with a dollop of Marmite
Just when one thought that Marmite does magical things to food alone,
comes news of yet another revolution in Sri Lanka's food and beverage
industry, with Unilever Sri Lanka launching a cocktail and mocktail
inspired by Marmite.
The Marmite Cocktail and Mocktail have been created by Cinnamon
Grand's Restaurants & Bars Manager, Namal Jayalath and his team. The
Marmite Cocktail and an equally tempting Marmite Mocktail are a result
of many taste bud trials.
Says Namal Jayalath, "Who would have ever thought that Marmite would
become an ingredient in cocktails and mocktails? It was a challenge and
a very interesting one at that given the distinctive taste of Marmite.
The two recipes were carefully crafted with the perfect balance of
flavours complementing each other with the signature salty flavour of
Marmite which we all know so well".
"Marmite has undergone a magical metamorphosis these past few weeks
in Sri Lanka. First there was Chocolate-Mite conjured by celebrity
Chocolatier Gerard Mendis. Then came Noodle-Mite created by celebrity
Chef Koluu. And now Marmite takes Sri Lanka's F&B circuits with this
double-barrelled experience. These are two distinctively contrasting yet
complementary beverages which challenge one's taste buds. Shaken and
stirred they give the experience a fabulously adventurous dimension and
are exclusively available at the Cinnamon Grand," says Brand Manager for
Marmite at Unilever Sri Lanka, Bianca de Silva.
