One of this year’s big cocktail trends is food pairing: creating a cocktail with a little inventive snack to accompany it, so that the flavours perfectly complement each other.

Jason Clark from New Zealand, designed a saffron salted popcorn to serve with his Kissed by Marilyn cocktail. Here’s his recipe:

Add 1/2 cup corn kernels to a popcorn maker machine. Pop the corn and store in an airtight container. (Good for 12 hrs).

For the saffron syrup, add 200ml 2-1 caramelised sugar syrup to an atomiser with 8 saffron threads, shake and infuse for 24hrs+

To serve add 1/2 cup popped corn to a glass ramekin and spray with the saffron syrup from an atomiser and sprinkle with a pinch of salt.
