Salt in Cocktails? Sure
This week’s craft cocktail experimentation has been a bit, um, strange. I suppose in some ways, no – after all, salt has been a staple of the margarita rim for a while now. But adding salt directly to your cocktail? Never thought of it, but perhaps I should have.
The good folks who authored this article reminded me of something I had already known with cooking – salt doesn’t always (or even usually) add flavor, but it enhances flavor, particularly in small volumes.
So far, I can’t say I’ve noticed any mind-blowing results, but I’ll keep trying. The only drawback is higher sodium intake, but that’s probably the least of concerns when it comes to consuming alcohol!
