Mushroom-Tempura-Sushi-#SocialClubRecipe

I was seriously missing Date Night on the town with my man. On occasion he and I would head out for an adult night and venture downtown for the most delicious vegetarian sushi and a good solid mixed drink. Those days have been scaled back drastically and I’m finding new ways to recreate an equally upbeat Date Night here at home.

I recently discovered the premium Social Club Seltzer – It comes in 3 fantastic flavors: Sidecar, Old Fashioned, and Citrus Gimlet. Social Club Seltzer reminds me of the sophisticated attitude of the golden 20’s. It is the epitome of elevation in seltzer beverages with quality and superiority. I pride myself on having a penchant for bubbly drinks and these being top shelve are a must for my Date Night at home.

The only thing left to figure out was how to recreate that delicious vegetarian sushi. I decided to conceive my own recipe with ingredients I could easily find. Mushroom Tempura Sushi sounded delicious in my mind and was even better once I figured out how to make it. Crunchy tempura battered mushrooms with avocado, cucumber, and spicy mayo wrapped in a sticky rice and seaweed. MMMMmmmm. This Mushroom Tempura Sushi and Social Club Seltzer pairing was so perfect for Date Night. We had a magnetic time. I thought it could also be used for a night with the family while watching the game. Just saying.

I bought my fresh Mushroom Tempura Sushi ingredients at my local Ralphs, and be sure to keep an eye out for these perfectly paired Social Club Seltzers at your local supermarket and many other locations!

I had leftover tempura batter and decided to make a few tempura carrot sticks to go with my sushi. Serve with soy sauce, wasabi, and pickled ginger.
