The Sip Advisor considers Egg Whites to be a hidden gem in the cocktail world, adding a thin layer of foam that is both pleasing to the eye and the taste buds. Perfect in various Sours and Fizzes drinks, here are some other amazing foam-like substances:
When Mrs. Sip and I came across this line of cocktail foams in Germany, from the House of Bols, I knew I’d be picking one each of the two flavours they had available: Blue Curacao and Crème de Banana. According to Bols, the foam can hold for up to 15 minutes, with other varieties including Crème de Cassis, Amaretto, Peppermint and White Cacao.
There was a short time, as a wee little sipper, when this was my favourite chocolate bar. Made with a honeycomb center that is similar to Sea Foam Candy, the bar has a unique taste and texture. Add delicious Cadbury chocolate to the treat and you have the makings of a very good snack.
Say goodbye to bars of soap forever! I love foam-based soaps, such as the ones sold at Bath & Body Works outlets across North America. With a variety of scents, it’s often hard to settle on a favourite, and their constant deals and promotions keep you coming back time and time again. Cleanliness is next to godliness, after all.
Is there a better way to tell the world that your team is number one? If there is, the Sip Advisor hasn’t come across it yet. This iconic piece of sports memorabilia and history can still be found at stadiums and arenas to this day, with one variation extending the middle finger.
Growing up, in the late 80s and early 90s was amazing. Among the great fads I got to live through, included the Nerf revolution. Nerf lives on today, with a revival in their weapons arsenal and also the use of the company name when describing something that has been made easier for users, particularly video game levels.
While some people can’t stand the “head” that comes with a beer, it should be noted that a properly poured frosty beverage will have this and it is actually a good thing. The foam allows for the brew’s aroma to be released, adding another element to the drinking experience.

What’s your favourite foam? Of course, I couldn’t include any scare foams, like frothing at the mouth because of rabies or some other ailment. No, sticking to the good foams was the better idea!
Sip Advisor Bar Notes (4 Sips out of 5):
I decided to use some Raspberry Vodka, rather than Raspberry Syrup, as the only Raspberry Syrup I had on hand was of the Blue Raspberry variety. The drink was good, as you would expect from such a classic cocktail. Next time, though, I won’t alter the ingredients.
