Breakfast for Champions

Breakfast for Champions is not your traditional breakfast; before I say anything else, it is not for kids. It is more of an attempt at bringing back childhood memories, like vacations, no worries, and good times. Having cereal, milk, and some berries in the morning is an easy and fast go-to breakfast, but this time is served with a slight twist.

Breakfast for Champions is not meant to be served for breakfast, even though after a couple of those, you might feel like an actual “Champion,” ready to take on the world. It is a whiskey-based drink with a caramel-vanilla taste and some pomegranate aroma.

The dehydrating method used here is the same as the one used to make the Campari Cotton Candy.

Two different techniques can be used to make the drink; one is to create a foam, and the other one is instead of making a foam, put the tea mix in a mould of choice and serve it on the plate beside the cereal.

Breakfast for Champions

Breakfast for champions. Infused cereal with butterscotch


  • 1 ½ oz Bourbon
  • ½ oz vanilla syrup*
  • 2 oz milk
  • 2-3 cups Pomegranate flavored cereal*
  • 2 oz Butterscotch
  • Food dehydrator
  • 1 oz single malt scotch
  • 15 oz Lapsang Souchong tea – or any other flavored tea*
  • 2 tsp of brown sugar
  • 2.5 gr. Xanthan gum


To make the drink:

Put the dehydrated cereal in a small cereal bowl with a spoon.
Serve the drink beside it, with the foam on top, or use a mould to make a Champion trophy.

*Vanilla syrup in the drink can be
substituted with a few drops of vanilla extract or ½ oz vanilla liqueur.

Vanilla syrup:

1 cup water

1 cup sugar

2-3 teaspoons vanilla extract

One vanilla bean

Simmer the water and the sugar on the stove until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Don't let it boil. Stir in 2-3 teaspoons of vanilla extract. Simmer for about 1 minute.

Remove from the heat. Let it cool down before bottling it. Put in the fridge. It should last for about 3-4 weeks.

If using a vanilla bean, slice the bean pod and scrape the seeds into the syrup. You can drop in the vanilla pod as well. Strain the syrup and bottle it.

Flavored cereal:

Infuse the cereal with Butterscotch liqueur, mix it, cover it, and let it sit overnight. Then, put it in the dehydrator until the cereal is dry and no more liquid is left. Store in an airtight container.


Blend using an immersion blender. Let it sit in the fridge for several hours to eliminate the air bubbles. Put it into an iSi canister type and charge it with one N20 cartridge for a 0.5L canister.

Shake the Cream Whipper a few times and put it into the refrigerator for at least two hours. If you need the foam immediately, getting proper foam will take at least 10-15 minutes.
