First came the charcoal black foods. Then came the rainbow dishes. Now metro Detroit appears to be gearing up for the summer of edible glitter. Coming up on Monday, May 7, the Apparatus Room at the Detroit Foundation Hotel is preparing to unveil its brand new 50-seat patio, which will feature light snacks as well as classic cocktails and frozen drinks. Among the icy cold beverages that the restaurant is teasing: a glass of frosé complete with shiny edible glitter.
Meanwhile in the suburb of Livonia, SuperNatural Brewing and Spirits has unleashed its version of glitter beer. Dubbed the Unicorn Blood Hibiscus Pale Ale, it’s described as a “pale ale brewed with hibiscus, giving it a lightly tart flavor” and is available on tap as of April 29. For glitter skeptics, the sparkles are optional.
