Molinera Cocktail Onions 340g
A cocktail onion is usually a pearl onio pickled in a brine with small amounts of turmeric and paprika. Pearl onions are naturally sweet, which makes them an excellent pairing with many cocktails. Other sweet onions such as the crystal wax, also known as the white Bermuda, are also sometimes used. In many cases, white varieties of these sweet onions are used, since many consumers expect cocktail onions to be white. However, yellow or red sweet onions may be used as well. In northern California cuisine some haute bars may use sliced red onions pickled in vinegar. Some recipes also call for the onions to be packed in white vermouth as well as vinegar.
