Deep-fried beer and pretzels

Fried beer and pretzels.

The beer is stuffed into pretzel-like dough and flash fried for about 20 seconds.

So an inventor in Texas has done it. He’s successfully fried a liquid. Mark Zable will unveil his deep-fried beer covered in a pretzel coating at the State Fair of Texas.

Ravioli-like pockets of pretzel dough are stuffed with Guinness (Zable says he may try and use a pale ale later) and then flash fried for a few seconds. The result – an ooey, gooey concoction that you’ll need to have your driver’s license for.

Yes, you will need to be 21 to indulge in the deep-fried beer. Authorities say there is enough of the alcohol left, even after frying. For $5 you get 5 pieces of deep-fried goodness. Git on down to the Lonestar State – the fair starts Sept. 24.

Oh, another creation that the Texas fair will have – a deep-fried margarita. Another inventor has stuffed lime-flavored tequila goodness into a funnel cake and covered it in powdered sugar.

Hmm…hope that catches on to next year’s Wisconsin State Fair…
