Ode to White Gourd

You've read my tweets and facebook posts on it. If you've seen me in the flesh over the last couple of weeks, I've probably made you try a sip of it - but only a sip, god forbid you drink allll of it. It has a smoky, caramel flavor. It is what heaven would taste like if heaven had a taste. I thought it was a dream I had: in that dream, the world was light green and perfectly misshapen and everywhere I went was the taste and smell of it (there were also spectacularly large candy-wrapped beetles discussing the mundanity of boomboxes, but that's besides the point).

For you, on this Monday, I give you the White Gourd Drink. Imagine the beauty inside:


  1. Have you tried crispy water chestnut drink yet?

  2. You forgot to mention that everyone you offer a sip to does a spit-take afterwards.
