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!

Bobby Caples graduated from USF, and eventually went on to expand the concept of community-based behavior support in other settings, include the organization he founded called YouthBASE (Greenville, SC). The concept of YouthBASE was much like the concept of his thesis, only on a larger scale: Take ideas and strategies that had found success in other fields beyond after-school programs, and import them.
