What drink goes best with the grasshoppers, crickets or giant water bugs you plan to consume on New Year's Eve? Don't panic, we have some suggestions for what to imbibe with these edible insects.
Tempted by grasshopper tacos or a nice mealworm risotto for the new year? You wouldn't be off-trend for this New Year's Eve. Especially since, according to a 2017 UN report (The future of food and agriculture: Alternative pathways to 2050) insects are a viable solution for helping us reduce our meat consumption while maintaining protein intake. This year, the FAO followed up with a report "Looking at edible insects from a food safety perspective."

It would therefore be wrong to deprive ourselves of them.
