Tuxedo Variation

  • Hey, Got Any Weed, Man?
  • Tux variationIf you can find some fresh seaweed, such as bladder wrack, dip the fronds into boiling water for a second or two and they will turn bright green. Drop the seaweed right into a bowl of iced water to prevent it from continuing to cook, and to set the color. It will make an attractive garnish, which you could eat if you were very hungry but which doesn’t taste delicious. Use it soon, otherwise it will go slimy.
