Kentucky Honey Tea Sliders anyone?
For those not yet in the know, Tampa Bay is being sought after as a premier food city.
Travel Channel food celebrity Adam Richman, best known for “Man vs. Food,” has teamed with Red Stag by Jim Beam to offer an unusual food truck tour that features a menu designed by Richman himself.
The tour makes a stop at Gaspar's Grotto, 1805 E. 7th Ave. in Ybor City from 4-8 p.m. and hits , 516 S. Howard Ave., in South Tampa from 9 p.m. to 1 a.m. Friday, June 15.
That will be followed by a visit to the Postcard Inn in St. Pete Beach from noon to 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 16, where the food truck will showcase some bourbon-infused recipes. Want to sample? The truck will offer up some treats to patrons, 21 and older, at Gulf Boulevard between 64th Ave and Gulf Winds Drive.
Says Richman: “My partnership with Red Stag has been an opportunity to explore the innovative and delicious Red Stag bourbon expressions from Jim Beam, while tapping into some different culinary traditions to create some really unexpected dishes, like Kentucky Honey Tea Sliders.”
Tampa is one of three cities the tour will visit, with a fourth to be decided by an online vote.
Food truck patrons 21 or older will get a chance to experience Richman’s unique Red Stag-inspired recipes and get their photo taken in front of the truck to share on Facebook with their adult friends (21 or older). Participating local bars will also carry the new Red Stag by Jim Beam expressions.
Fans will follow along as the food truck makes stops around the country on an interactive geo-targeted map on the sampling tab, which also includes the recipes so fans can bring the taste home.
Red Stag Honey Tea, Spiced and Black Cherry, are made with four-year-old Jim Beam Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey as a base liquor and infused with natural flavors through an artisanal process.
