Salt In Cocktails. We should have been doing this a long time ago. We are very aware of the role salt plays in cooking and it’s role as a flavor enhancer. But for some reason we hadn’t thought to use it much in cocktails. Inspired by some of the books we have been reading lately and especially the Campari Martini from Beta Cocktails, we have begun experimenting and adding salt to almost every cocktail.
We have found that salt can change the experience of all kinds of drinks. We have mainly stuck to using salt to balance out bitter and enhance some different flavors in otherwise challenging spirits. We are wondering if a few drops of saline solution might even make Malort palatable!
For our saline solution, we are simply using a 1 to 10 ratio of salt to water by weight.
